The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

21 August 2003

Why's everybody always picking on Gray?

Quite apart from the obvious geographical reference, it's hard to imagine any other state with a political group called "Californians Against the Costly Recall of the Governor"; only in California would you find someone who insists on reminding people that elections — or de-elections — cost money. I am frankly surprised that there isn't some committee somewhere in the Golden State billing itself as "Californians Against Things That Suck".

Fortunately for Web surfers, CATCROTG (don't say it out loud) is accessible at a reasonably-memorable URL: No-Recall.com. One of the items I found there is what purports to be a blog by Mrs Gray Davis, and it's pretty much what you'd expect. One quote I simply must pass on:

We have been moved by all of the people who have come forward to be supportive and to help. We are grateful for every Democrat who has stood with us and every Republican with the courage to admit this is wrong.

In aggregate, this probably isn't enough votes to elect a county commissioner in Oklahoma.

A name like that might raise some hackles, depending on what generation you're a part of:

Yea, verily. When I was in high school, back in the Jurassic period, you could get suspended for saying that something sucked.

Especially, I suspect, if it did.
