Darrell Issa, the millionaire congressman who bankrolled the recall effort only to drop out, has now issued a bizarre threat:
Congressman Darrell Issa (EYE’-suh) is afraid that Republican state senator Tom McClintock and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger will split conservative support — and guarantee a victory for Democratic Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante (boost-ah-MAHN’-tay) if California’s governor is recalled.
So now Issa says one of the two Republicans must drop out — or he’ll dramatically reverse his stance and start calling for the recall to be defeated.
Not that I can imagine anyone would listen to this guy, but the level of self-absorption here is amazing. (And what’s with the phonetic spellings? Does anyone who’d be reading the story not know how Bustamonte and Issa are pronounced?)
