Now set aside the usual political considerations about this election. The biggest national consequence of Newsom’s ouster — and the best reason for anyone, not just Democrats, to be opposed — is this: Recalling him would add to the dangerously anti-democratic drift in this country.
This recall would be idiotic at any time, but it is especially so at this moment in American history.
Oh, I see. Calmes--in her sixties and a veteran reporter--was probably equally worried in 2012 when Scott Walker was recalled. Can't seem to find a similar hand-wringy piece on that, however.
