  •  If the mayor is toppled, another (5+ / 0-)

    mayor will take her place. And the replacement is probably even worse. Replacing mayors never did a cause any good. It is the system that needs changing (at least the system in Oakland).

    •  They'll probably end up with Don Perata. (0+ / 0-)
    •  look at what happened to the state (1+ / 0-)

      when the rich little rightwinger funded the recall of gray davis - we got arnold schwarzenegger.  why?  because there were over 150 candidates on the ballot, from strippers to Gallagher (i came SOOOO very close to voting for him  - i really LIKE his politics!).

      schwarzenegger won because of the young kids who kept saying it would be "KOOL" to have the "terminator" as gov.

      well, it turned out not so "kool" at all - and recalling quan opens the door to further republican takeover of this state.

      the IRV that put her in is a major part of the problem.  no one anticipated she could win, including her.  talk about screwing up the process - IRV does it.

      Is GlowNZ back yet?
