Favorite Dem Spin

by Steven F. Hayward

It was clear early in the evening, before the polls closed but after all the networks were hinting that their exit polls showed a smashing victory for recall/Arnold, that the Democrats had worked up their talking points: This was really a message to President Bush that he’s in trouble. Terry McAuliffe was already road testing this before the polls closed.

My favorite moment of the evening was when Dem uber-apparatchik Bob Mulholland tried out the party line on Brit Hume. With his deadpan delivery, Hume asked: “Let me get this straight: 60 percent of California voters voted for a Republican candidate [Arnold + McClintock], and this is something that should worry President Bush?”

Mulholland: “Yes.”
