Who are the "other" candidates for California governor in the recall election? Well, there are two ways of looking at the 130 also-rans.

One would be to seriously look at the proposals that make up their platforms. One partial attempt at this was done by the Oakland Tribune. "Unknown hopefuls' ideas ever a mystery" actually looked at a few key proposals by each of six candidates. Not many, but a start. The saddest part may be that his is one of the most complete lists of "minor" candidate statements available to voters.

More typical is the approach chosen this morning by the SF Chronicle. "From wildest date, to guilty pleasures, to who makes their beds, some of the 'other' recall hopefuls tell all" got right down to what's really important: wildest dates and who makes their own bed.

During this final weekend before the election, why don't you take a little time to visit the web sites of at least 12 candidates and learn a little something about them. I've got the links right here - give it a shot.

(BTW, as a follow-up to my last post, the most popular stupid search that's led to this page during the recall campaign was "georgy russell nude pics." That was toward the start of the campaign when I was mentioning her a lot more. Since I no longer show up in that search my hits have fallen drastically.)
