Race too Close to Call

That was the headline gracing several articles from the online newspapers and wire services yesterday morning as Californians headed to the polls. Judging from the nearly final vote count, nothing could be further from reality. Davis was recalled by a 10-point margin, and Arnold bitch-slapped Cruz, garnering nearly 50% of the vote in the process, in a 135 candidate race, no less!

So, was the press innocently and obliviously waaaaayyy off base with their “too close” angle? Or, was this just a case of wishful thinking by a liberal dominated press corps, which swallowed its own bunk that Davis was gaining steam in the dying days of the campaign, and that Arnold was severely hamstrung by the LA Times hit pieces? I’m inclined to accept the latter.
