It's official: California has finally reclaimed its rightful place as the wackiest state in the union.
Florida had us beat for a while with Elian Gonzalez and hanging chads, but we came roaring back with this whole recall thing. Think about it: Darrell Issa -- an alleged car thief who later made his fortune selling car alarms -- decides he wants to be governor.
So he throws the world's sixth largest economy into utter chaos by paying a bunch of losers to collect enough signatures to invalidate an election that's not even a year old -- right in the middle of the worst deficit crisis in state history.
You can't make this shit up.
Therefore, they nominate Gary Coleman and put him on the ballot. Really.
And then it gets weirder.
All the qualified GOP candidates bow out to give ..
Of *course* the orders came from on high.
Hokay, I think the Republican Party have finally figured out California.
It's a different State of Mind. Treat it as such.
By the way, the recall ballot will be a collectors item. Grab one.
