Take My Statehouse, Please:...

Take My Statehouse, Please: Mickey Kaus is desperately seeking a write-in candidate to stand up and add zang to the California's dreary gubernatorial race:

[T]his is the political opportunity of a lifetime. Californians (and California political reporters) dislike both the official party candidates, Republican Bill Simon and incumbent governor Gray Davis. They're desperate for an alternative. Jump into the race now, and you're sure to get a surge of media interest. Even as a write-in candidate, you'll become the vehicle for massive voter discontent. And if the protest vote is large enough, you might just ... O.K. you won't win. But it's only a two-week commitment!
There are five days left. He's accepting suggestions.

Mike Scioscia, but only b/c Francisco Rodriguez isn't eligible.

Ah come on now. We all know that life under Governor Tony Pierce would rock. Is there a Metro bus line from LA to Sacramento? I guess he could use his flying car, if the XBI says it's okay.
