I suppose I should say something about Ah-nuld, but all I can think of is: Hooray!
The CBC's David Halton was on The National last night, wandering the corridors of Sacramento, making big frowny faces. These crazy Americans, this . . . democracy.
I happen to think that California's rights of referenda and recall are a critically important check on arrogant politicians, judges and bureaucrats. Would that Canadians had similar options.
We instead have an ossified -- if, for the moment, benign -- dictatorship, and nothing short of bullets and bayonets will remove it. No, I am no Paul Martiniac. (Yes, A Fearful Symmetry, you owe me a link for that one.)
But you didn't come here for my opinions on Canadian politics. All I've got to otherwise offer is this lame joke, which I heard yesterday:
"Did you hear about the new pirate movie?
"No! What about it?"
"It's rated Aaaahhrrrr!"
