It's only February, and California's campaigns have degenerated into talk of wood chippers and demon sheep.
At exactly 2:26 minutes into a video, a soon to be infamous "demon sheep" makes its appearance in one of the oddest campaign videos of all time. They must have been working long hours at Carly for California, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina's Senate campaign.
Prior to that point, in what we can only assume was to be an attack piece on one of Fiorina's Republican Senate primary rivals, Tom Campbell, the video was bad enough. It compared Campbell bizarrely in David Lynch-like fashion to a bunch of sheep.
But at the 2:26 point in the video, the 2010 election cycle got a new mascot so fitting for the weird world of campaign politics.
This came out in the same week that one of Meg Whitman's many consultants threatened to place Steve Poizner into a wood chipper in the Republican primary for governor.
And we thought Democrats were doomed to experience a mid-term drubbing.
If Californian Republican gubernatorial candidates, Whitman and Poizner think wood chippers are the ticket to higher office, the lone Democrat in the race, Jerry Brown stands to sweep up the wood pulp.
Or if Republicans think victory comes in the form of a T-1000 in a bunny suit, leaving "Call Me Senator" Barbara Boxer quaking in her go-go boots, they should think again.

This factor, I believe, contributed to his getting elected as mayor earlier this month and, if harnessed properly, can help the new mayor provide energetic leadership in the days to come.
Now if we can only find the person responsible for cloning these multiple copies of Kevin Johnson...

Pick a word or phrase you'd expect each candidate to use frequently and take a sip of your favorite beverage whenever that candidate utters it. Whoopee! Judging by the way the campaign has gone, I wouldn't be surprised if each candidate chooses to "go negative" than lay out his or her plans for the city.
So whenever Fargo or Johnson refers to "my opponent" or something to that effect I'm taking a swig. Who's joining me?
