"[OT] The system works" , posted Tue 7 Oct 22:32post reply


Since I can't post in the other California recall thread for some reason (error 3?) I'll post this here.

I could really care less who won, but Gray Davis is the biggest scumbag alive. Hopefully he'll never be heard of in politics again and it warms my heart to see him recalled. Arnold may not be the best man for the job, but seriously he'd have to be massively corrupt to be as horrible as Davis was so worse case scenario: California stays in the shitter. However I doubt Arnold could improve on Davis' massive ineptitude.

Considering pretty much every poll for the last month has said that Davis was going to be recalled and Arnold instated I'm not sure who this is a surprise to.

The saddest part is that some people actually bought Davis's last minute libel that he pulls constantly. Arnold's Hitler comment was taken VASTLY out of context (he said he admired Hitler's abilities but was disgusted with what he did with them; second part of that quote was strangely absent); the author of the book had to come out and say so since apparently he wasn't consulted.

Ugh. Hopefully this will send a message to other politicians who's only goal is to serve their personal self interests at the expense of their constituents. Even until the end Davis couldn't make a single possive reason why he should be Govenor; all he knew was to attack the opposition. Sad.

Hrm. I wanted to post in the other thread but also got that error message. Anyway, I was gonna say how stupid Californians are. But then I didn't know all of these dirty facts about Davis. I still don't know what your talking about, but if it's true, then I guess I can live with the fact that we have Arnold as governor.

The only thing I like about Arnold is that he's not a politician. Other then that, I don't know if he is capable of doing the job. Oh yeah, I also like the fact that Arnold is a moderate Republican. Actually, I think Arnold is probably very liberal, but I'm betting he's dressing himself up as Repub cause it's easier to get Liberals to vote for a moderate Repub then for Republicans to vote for a moderate Liberal. Yeah yeah yeah.

Anyway, this'll be an interesting governership. My last wish would be for Arnold to 'terminate' Bush Jr. the idiot.

Goodness I hate the current administration. Buncha %&@#$ morons.

You're one hateful guy, and pretty sheltered if Gray Davis is the 'biggest scumbag alive.'

I wasn't really surprised by the outcome. At least Gray Davis made a good concession.

I think it's a bit of an odd situation, as I don't know what to expect from Arnold.. I guess in a few months, we'll all see how it turns out.

In any case, the short term benefit is that when he goes on TV to talk I can have a brief source of amusement :).

Did that come from Davis or did it come from his supporters?

Arnold saying that is hearsay, so it's not sertain that he said it. Even if it's true he said something like he admired Hitler's public speaking ability or some thing like that, that doesn't mean he believes in NAZI master race practices. In fact Arnold stated that he's always been against NAZI things, which seems like something normal people should go without saying. When people float someting like that Hitler comment they are expecting the stupidity of the public to make that false association.

people shouldn't discuss politics on a gaming board. It just makes certain people lose respect for certain other people.

It is pretty off topic. I hope I didn't loose any respect. edit: I don't think I said anything bad, I just criticized dirty politics, but I agree it's off topic.

In my business class last night, the teacher would go to cnn.com to get updates on the polls. I was quite surprised by the margin between recalling Davis and not recalling Davis was incredibly slim. It was maybe a 6 percent difference. This was around 8, when the first results got online. I don't know if that changed much though. Apparently he's not as hated in CA as many thought.
