Granted, Jerry Brown is crazy. But in this screwball state, he might be crazy in a good way.
Who knows what Governor Brown will do? I don’t. I doubt Jerry knows either. But, oddly enough, I predict that, from a fiscal conservative viewpoint, he’ll be far better than any of us imagined.
Not great. Perhaps not even good. Just better than conservatives expect — a lot better.
I would have preferred Meg Whitman as governor. But not by much. I viewed her as Arnold in a skirt. I ended up voting for the Libertarian Dale Ogden, and felt good about it afterwards.
Jerry Brown is an iconoclast who has reached the final office of his long political career. He was put back in the governorship by the Democrats — especially the labor unions. But there is no political reason for him to pander to his supporters.
