I'M SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW THIS GUY UP A HILL?


Hugh Hewitt continues to blame Tom McClintock for Arnold and his campaign’s shortcomings. Today, he cries that as many as 11,000 absentee ballots may have been cast for Tom, and how potentially that could be disastrous for Arnold. Well, who’s fault is that?

Who forced Arnold to not sign a “No New Taxes” pledge? Who forced Arnold to come out against Prop54? Who told Arnold that he had to turn the keys to the Governor’s Mansion over to the CTA? Who told Arnold he had to be so strong on baby killing? Who made Arnold call us “right wing crazies”?

Steve Lopez in the LA Times has it about right on Arnold, “a know-nothing actor whose politics are those of a pro-war Howard Dean.”

Why on earth is any of this Tom McClintock’s fault? Economics 101 tells us that when there’s a market for something, someone will come to fill that void. Same is true in politics. There’d be a HUGE gap in the ideological spectrum missing in this race if Tom were absent, the area commonly known as “the right.”

Had Arnold offered even crumbs to conservatives, many would be on board. However, he has offered no concessions, and so instead of leading a united Republican charge, he’s had to rely on Hugh Hewitt calling people names. Some kinda leader, huh?
