As recently as three weeks ago, I was of the view that Governor Davis would probably survive the recall challenge. It now seems certain that he will be tossed out by a fairly wide margin. Democratic and Republican polling differ somewhat about the size of the margin. But it's a distinction without a difference.

I suspect (but have no proof) that Davis's last minute assault on the Cyborg will rally conservative Republicans to Cyborg's camapign, thus dooming Lt. Governor Bustamante, who probably would have lost anyway due to the Indian gaming virus known as sleazeballia.

As ever, Mickey Kaus remains the Grand Central Station for CA campaign news. And say goodbye to Arianna.
