Gary Davis and his supporters in the home stretch

Daniel Weintraub has a hilarious bit on last minute campaigning by Gray Davis and his supporters. This, of course, could only take place in San Francisco:

As [Mayor Willie] Brown spoke, a man with an oversized Arnold Schwarzenegger mask strapped to his face, money in his hands and a large blue E symbolizing Enron pursued a woman dressed in pink around the plaza, groping her between faux slaps in the face.

And here's something that will make Davis sleep easier:

Charles Duff, 24, a student at San Francisco State University, sat with his back to the rally. I asked him what he thought of the recall.

“Crazy,” he said. “It’s crazy.”

What’s crazy about it? I asked him.

“The idea that you can take out a guy and have all these people running to replace him.”

So you’re going to vote against the recall?

“When’s the election?” he asked before answering the question himself. “Tomorrow, isn’t it? I don’t know. I have to work. I have to work most of the day.”
