Congratulations, Governor-elect Schwarzenegger.
I’ve never been a fan of Gray Davis, but I have to admit he gave a very graceful concession speech. Not that there were many options open to him. The results were so lopsided that it would have been tough to blame the loss on hanging chads or voter disenfranchisement. Nice to see that he’s smart enough to know when to fold ’em.
Since some have already started making noises about recalling Schwarzenegger, I’ve been thinking about a rematch. Next time there’s a recall election, I’d like to see Tony Danza (“Who’s the Boss?”) run against Bruce Springsteen (just “The Boss”). If we’re going to have entertainers running for office, let’s at least have some fun with it.
What other pairings could we come up with? Hmmm… how about Kermit the Frog vs. Peter Camejo. An epic battle fought under the title “It’s Not Easy Being Green”.
Or perhaps Dustin Hoffman running against Michael Richards? We could call that one “Kramer vs. Kramer”.
