Davis Wants It Over With

Interesting news from the recall today:
Gov. Gray Davis said Friday he wanted to get the recall election over with Oct. 7, as he appeared with former Vice President Al Gore and cast the recall as the latest in a string of Republican power grabs.

"My attitude is, let's just get it over with. Let's just have this election on Oct. 7, put this recall behind us so we can get on with governing the state of California," Davis said after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to reconsider a three-judge panel's ruling postponing the election.
"Interesting" because Gray Davis seems to have absolutely no ulterior reason to make such a pronouncement. He supposedly has enough of a war chest to last him even through a March postponement. It's been reported that his opponents don't have that kind of scratch and that Schwarzenegger's campaign team can't last that long.

So either Gray Davis is (a) ready to blow the bank in the next couple of weeks, (b) he's confident he's got the recall beat, or (c) he's finally just as fed up as all of us with the whole thing.
