You will be shocked to learn that the attempt to recall Governor Brewer has fallen short. Of course, we have to get give the organizers some credit, they are only about 95% SHORT of the valid signatures that they needed. Still, that's much better than the Kyl recall which managed to turn in exactly ZERO signatures.
When these "attempts" were announced I asked why they are covered at all. The recall attempts are not credible and they are often started by the same handful of people who have failed dozens of times in the past. The real goal of the recall organizers is to generate a big story in the Republic, and the Republic for its part is quick to help them meet this goal. When will the reporters realize that they are being played for fools? Why not wait until the group has gathered, say, half of the required signatures before giving them a platform to pummel some hapless elected official?
That would be a responsible thing for a reporter to do. Maybe they should teach that in J school.
