Latest recall commercial: Just caught the newest Dianne Feinstein anti-recall commercial. A couple of things struck me:
First, there's no mention of any names. Not Gray Davis -- he's "this governor." Arnold Schwarzenegger also got a mention -- he's "this governor's" "opponent."
Second, it casts the recall as a Davis vs. Schwarzenegger -- a tactic Davis has been trying since the polls started to show that his recall was likely.
The other amusing thing in the past week and a half or so has been the trailing Davis' challenges to Schwarzenegger to debate and criticism that he only participated in one debate.
Flashback one year ago, and a frontrunning Davis did the same thing to challenger Bill Simon that Schwarzenegger is doing to him -- ignoring him.
