Now Gray Davis has hired a couple of Clinton/Algore's political snipers to escalate his "war" on common sense and energy policy:

http://www.latimes.com/news/front/20010519/t000041900.html

The good people of California--and there are enough of them to put a stop to this idiocy if they will just take a bit of time off from wine-sipping and sun-basking--need to wake up and do exactly that. Davis and the rest of his gang are trying to stir up hysteria by criticizing the only rational course of action--enhancing fuel supply and power generating capacity. All this silliness about sun and wind solving energy issues is just that. It has been looked at by experts for decades--and it does have some small-scale applications--and they have been put to good use where feasible. But Silicon Valley is not going to be lit up with windmills, Governor.

And what about the critical element of the Clinton/Algore constituency during the '90s--our beloved "soccer moms"? Must be millions of them in SoCal and NoCal. Where will they be on the conservation issue? Will they be driving their gas-guzzling SUVs to anti-Bush protest riots--to pile them up like 1960s-era brassieres to be bashed and burned? Or will they wake up, at long last? Hopefully the latter--it's hard (through these male heterosexual eyes) to see how Gray Davis could cast the same spell that Clinton did on that demographic segment.

There is an opportunity here to break this particularly loathsome and divisive brand of political demagoguery--which achieved such prominence during the Clinton debacle--and return it to the lunatic-fringe where it properly belongs. As a sitting governor, Gray Davis should acquire a reputation lower than that of George Wallace or Orville Faubus or Lester Maddox for his irresponsibility and irrationality.

What a shame that W has to waste even one minute of his time or one nickle of his resources to deal with this character.

/s/ S.T.
