So Bill Simon recognized he still is not cut out to be a candidate and has stopped tossing his hat and started tossing his towel instead - calling off his bid for State Treasurer.
But Lockyer is still in it. In fact, he's a formidable candidate - so much so that Simon got scared off.
Wow. It's like the game the NFL lets you see when the game you want to see is blacked out (as they always are here in SF since neither of the hometeams can sell out their damn stadiums - which might bother me more if I cared about either team. But it's the principle of the thing. rant over).
Two woulda-been horseshoe seekers duking it out over the STATE TREASURER race. No disrespect, Phil Angelides, but c'mon.
It's criminal that John Chiang got squeeze out so Bill "Was That My Political Capital I Set Fire To?" Lockyer could stay in statewide office somehow. I still can't exactly put my finger on why the constant office-switching bothers me so much. I like career service. But this feels more like, well, a pre-determined prom queen - oh, who am I kidding - prom king election. Who's turn is it now? Now, now, you were in the royal court last year, it's Trey's turn now.
Otherwsie fine candidates can't seem to settle on anything - meanwhile, woman almost scored a victory, but instead will likely pick each other off in the primary battling for two offices instead of spreading the wealth since the Big Boys didn't really consult with anyone while they played electoral Twister (Left Hand Insurance Commissioner!).
Does this bug anyone else?
