1. Yes, this is a dupe, but it's an important story.
Seems that Arnie is going to be the next guv of CA so he can approve the payoff to Enron. CA will lose $9bn. Neither Davis nor Bustamante would approve the deal, that is why rich conservatives had to recall D and discredit B. If the people of CA knew that the Termite-Eater had made deals with Enron and Bush*, would they still elect him? I am cynical (experienced?) enough to say yes. Average American sheeple don't get all this complicated stuff. They just want a macho celebrity to tell them what to do. After all the negative stuff about Arnie (groping, stupidity, lack of experience, failure to debate, failure to answer questions, Nazi-admiration, etc.), we still hear CA voters rationalizing: "He's been successful at everything he's done, so he will be a successful governor." Yes, he will be elected even if this story hits the major media, which it won't. Once in office, Arnie will make decisions that will help CA go to Bush in 2004 also. When can we start the recall Arnie campaign?

2. Once in office the first thing Arnie will do
will be to ditch or otherwise muck up the Recall apparatus.

4. Headline: Enron and Ahnuld in orgy
Agree to pay each other for the intercourse. Both could be prosecuted for prostitution. California, as we know it, soon to be terminated?!

5. This story gives meaning to the whole process
Recall has been a part of the California State Constitution since the early 1900s. It has not been used until now. I don't think there has been an overpowering need until the power industry got hit with $9 billion lawsuit. The one million dollar expense of buying the recall signatures(compared to the prospect of losing a $9 billion lawsuit) is like ONE DOLLAR to a person making $50,000 a year. I don't think Issa will be out a god damn penny. The late, great Enron and their cronies will make his expenses good. Win, lose or draw, I bet they figure is a worth while expense. Those are good odds, and when one throws in the whores like Tweety Bird Matthews, Susan Estrich and Pat Caddell, the odds improve even more. Tweety has been on the recall story like stink on shit. It is ironic, since Tweety has been so vocal in his belief that Bill Clinton stunk of the Oval Office. Swartzengropper seems several thousand times worse than Bill, and now it appears, Ahnold has hands on experience with Ken Lay. Not to mention one of Ahnold's heroes whom Ahnold probably believes is alive and hiding in Argentina. Tweety has done everything but swoon at the prospect of Governor Swartzengropper. He and Susan were so vocal in condemning the LA Times for 'its hit piece.' Ahnold's groopees seem to be coming out of the woodwork, but Susan and Tweety will not apologize to the Times. Perhaps, Ahnold will sue.

6. this makes a lot of sense
It dovetails neatly with the R plan to conquer California as a stop along the 2004 campaign trail. Issa won't be out a penny, one way or the other, but I'll bet he was promised (lied to) that he would be supported in a run for governor if he brought the recall home. Betrayal seems to be a standard R tactic.
