The Declarer (Floyd McWilliams' Blog)

The San Jose Mercury News printed these letters from Arianna Huffington supporters. I would just like to say that you should vote Yes on the recall and Yes on Arianna.

Shame on Arianna Huffington for dropping out of the run for governor. She has disappointed many like myself who were looking forward to having a choice separate from status quo politics run by big bucks and corporate interests.

I understand that her decision to drop out was based on a desire to safeguard the Democratic vote for California. But she has allowed the tyranny of tradition, led by men with egos bigger than our national debt, to again have its way.

I only hope she will have the courage to rise up in future elections and hold her ground. We need articulate and well-educated women running government.

Quite a tyrannical tradition that joke candidates get less than 1% of the vote. Bonus points to the letter-writer for being named after a video game.

By the way, did I mention that you should vote Yes on the recall, and Yes on Peter Camejo?

The average male doesn't handle the household budget or decision-making, so why would you want a male leading California? The rooster may crow, but the hen delivers the goods. Since the roosters have been crowing in Sacramento, California has gone to hell in a hand basket.

California government is not broke. It is grossly mismanaged by men with their personal agendas, but it is not broke.

Unfortunately, since Arianna Huffington has dropped out of the race, California will be no better off after the recall than it is today.

Average males don't handle budgets or make decisions? Roosters in Sacramento? Hens delivering goods? Those men and their personal agendas?

I think when your analogy slips its clutch out and veers off the road and over a cliff and into the ocean and kills a whole bunch of innocent fish, you should tear up your letter and get back to work on sending your personal ad to Henpecked Weekly.

Oh, and be sure to vote No on the Recall. That's always been my position!
