I was getting tea in the pantry of the place I'll be puttering around in working for the next 2 weeks. Crossfire was blaring on the televisions overhead. I glanced a little as I poured hot water into my cup.
I'd heard of the show but never really watched it before. They were doing this strange dual interview segment with one man talking to Willie Brown and another talking with Mary Bono. The hot topic was naturally the recall elections. Brown spoke out against the recall in general and defended his party's decision to not place showboat candidates into the race as the Republicans had. Bono smiled and looked generally blank as she answered all her questions. I was too busy shaking my head and stifling a hysterical laugh of contempt to focus on more than her dumbass expressions and monosyllabic replies with a beauty queen smile. If she'd been asked "so really Mary, admit it: you don't have a fucking clue what you're doing here and are just glad to be on TV," she'd still do that little half smile and say "that's right, I might as well be a sock puppet because I have no clue what's going on!"
*sigh* It might never rain in Southern California, but the whole state's going to hell in a handbasket. And to think, I wanted to live there at one point. I hate to say it but I'd rather have a health freak workaholic not letting me sniff some smoke in a bar as a mayor and a cheapskate that threw his father in a destitute old folks home for governor than be having to go through the sideshow they've got going on the other coast. What a circus! I don't know whether to implore a CA reader to just vote "no" on the recall or pack up your shit and move. The whole thing is just terrible.
