The Boston Diaries

The ongoing saga of a programmer who doesn't live in Boston, nor does he even like Boston, but yet named his weblog/journal “The Boston Diaries.”

Go figure.

“Whatcha talking 'bout, Willis?”

Darrell Issa—an alleged car thief who later made his fortune selling car alarms—decides he wants to be governor. So he throws the world's sixth largest economy into utter chaos by paying bunch of losers to collect enough signatures to invalidate an election that's not even a year old—right in the middle of the worst deficit crisis in state history. You can't make this shit up.

Via Flutterby, Gary for Governor!

Yes, California is in a gubernatorial crisis right now, and everybody is running for Governor of the land of Shake-n-Bake. Arnold Schwarzenegger has made noises about running, and Larry Flynt is running and, when you read the article above, so is Gary “Whatcha talking 'bout, Willis?” Coleman.

This is about as amusing as the FAU's newspaper/student government scandal over a decade ago. Personally, I'm hoping Larry wins; he's done more for our Constitutional rights and has run a very successful business so he stands a better chance of getting California out of its financial crisis.
