A Somewhat Overlooked ReCAL Subplot

By Steven Taylor @ 9:38 pm

California’s new odd couple not quite ‘Twins’

One is tall, muscular, tanned, and handsome. The other is squat, pale, balding, and bespectacled. One has strength, brains, and personality. The other is an undersized, genetic mutant with criminal tendencies.

This script premise of the 1988 movie, “Twins” - which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito - is already being trotted out, only half in jest, to draw parallels with the real-life plotline now unfolding at the California statehouse.

With the dramatic election win of the Republican Mr. Schwarzenegger and the loss of Democratic Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante, the dueling duo could now become the strangest political bedfellows in American history.

Mr. Bustamante becomes the first lieutenant governor in the US to have run against the same candidate he will now serve under.

And you all thought that the movie analogies were over with! Seriously, this is one interesting, and amusing in its own way, result of this rather extraordinary process.

Amd speaking of Cruz, if one wants a real dramatic end to the tale worthy of Hollywood, Kaus notes the follow “Scruz Bustamante” scenario:

2. Can’t Gray Davis really screw Bustamante by resigning a few days or hours before Arnold Schwarzenegger takes office, thereby making Bustamante governor for a few days or hours, after which Bustamante would (under one statutory interpretation) not return to being lieutenant governor but instead be completely out of a job?

  1. GD may be a sleaze ball, but he still wants to have a career in CA politics. I mean, what else can the guy do?

  4. but he still wants to have a career in CA politics

    Note to the clueless…

    That is over. The only thing he could win would be dog catcher in Berkley. The rest of the state hates him.

    But I’m with you on one thing… I don’t know what else he can do either… His incompetence has been well documented.

    I suspect he will teach.

  5. While I very much doubt the “Scruz Bustamante” scenario will be played out (although it would be amusing), I also doubt that Gray Davis will be coming back to CA politics. Methinks his day is rather done.
