The California election season of 2004 was the closest thing to a political earthquake that the free world has witnessed. The upheaval came about as a too-shrewd Republican operator saw a way to take advantage of the California energy debacle and a century old law concerning state ballot propositions as a means to remove the just-reelected Democratic Governor Gray Davis and, presumably, put himself in office. But Republican Congressman Darrell Issa's personal investment of $1.7 million to initiate a recall and promote his political ambitions went swiftly awry. His party had another idea about candidates. When they decided that super ambitious Arnold Schwarzenegger's fame would make him more electable, it was all over for Issa (pronounced, eye-sa).
