I don't know why no one is talking about a Newsom Resignation. It would derail this whole farce.
We would also get our first Female Governor... for what that's worth.

Nevermind the French Laundry, Newsom's failings are larger: failure to head-off Covid in the Prisons, Failure to Shut Diablo Canyon, Failure to lead an effort for single-payer (passed by the
Legislature *twice* under Republican Governor), failure to end fracking, failure to fix water policy
in the State.

Seriously, someone tell me a reason for saving this guy besides the standard Democratic
Party "we're not as bad as *them*" argument.

As always, the Left seeks to impel the least educated and the least experienced people to vote their ignorance into our governance. The youngest voters are the target now.
