Brooks Firestone, a leading moderate and former assemblyman, had another interpretation. ``I think the people of California got ahead of the Republican Party as Republicans,'' he said. ``The people of California showed the Republican Party how to be Republicans. It's about governance. It's not about sermons.''

Wow, there's my new tagline (if it'll fit). Thank you.

Flag on the play, ten yard penalty for premature celebration.

Firestone is a little early, they haven't governed anything yet.

Brooks Firestone seems to give an awful lot of sermons for someone who claims to be against sermonizing.

Some great early signs have come out of this victory - and one of them appears to be that the Wilson camp won't be controlling the strings. Sorry, Charlie. Arnold is more interested in governing than carrying the water for your anti-conservative Jihad.

Chanc, Do you have any objections to my plagarizing Strela's new tag line. (I have her approval but I wanted to check with you since it was borrowed from you to begin with)

BINGO!

And note how Arnold defanged the Democrats on day 1, by bringing some of them onto his team, yet is not wavering one iota from his plan to "open the books" and hired Jeb Bush's finance person to do it.

To paraphrase it, "it's the leadership, stupid".
