Martin Doesn’t Recall

Martin is puzzled by the recall efforts around Governor Davis:
“I can’t stand Gray Davis, but this is ridiculous. He was elected and that’s that. This recall thing is wacky beyond belief.”
Why wacky, Martin? There’s a legal process in place to elect someone; there’s also a legal process in place to recall them. Unlike impeachment — where there has to be genuine evidence of wrongdoing — my understanding is that you can do a recall for any reason, it’s just a vote of no confidence by the peepul.
So it’s actually a fairly objective thing (as opposed to the very subjective process of impeachment) — either you’ve got enough signatures to get a recall on the ballot, or you don’t.
So if it passes, fine, if it doesn’t, also fine. All is fair under the law, isn’t it?
