7:19 - well, *that* was entertaining.

The upshot of the recent polling:

1) we no longer have the legislative and executive branches of our government controlled by one political party.
2) Bustamante's "concession" speach was hil-larious. Damn, and I thought I was brave. Calling your soon-to-be-boss all those names has got to take cahones the size of coconuts. Props to ya, Cruz.
3) I am definately looking forward to hearing Ah-nold give the "state of the state" addresses.

Now if we can just get some other state to elect, say, a wrestler or something as govenor we could organise inter-state cage matches. I'd pay to see that. :)

Isn't Jesse "the body" Ventura some kind of political figure already?

Apparently, the "concession" speech we heard in the car was not Bustamante's concession speech. It turns out that everyone, including all major networks (CNN, Fox News), thought it was the concession speech, but when Arnold went to give his winner speech, Bustamante apparently gave the "real concession" speech. However, while I have not heard that speech, commentators have said it was so condescending and phony. The "concession" speech we heard was a "anti-Prop 54" speech.

Some people are actually saying Arnold purposely upstaged Bustamante's concession speech by giving his speech at the same time. That is bullshit. Arnold doesn't need to upstage Bustamante, plus everyone including all the major news channels thought Bustamante had already gave his concession speech.

Also, see if you can get a hold of Davis' concession speech. It was actually one of the best concession speeches I have ever heard. I actually got a little teary even though I hated the guy. I kinda felt sorry for Davis. He introduced his family, he thanked everyone and when the crowd began chanting "recall, recall" (meaning to recall Arnold), he stopped that by saying "the message of tonight was "no recall" and now we as a state need to move forward".

That was one good concession speech.
