Not since an angry mob of Nutmeg Staters chased then-Connecticut Gov. Lowell Weicker down a street has a gubernatorial spectacle been this enjoyable.

Though the idea of California as a bellwether is totally played out, it's nice to hope that a successful recall of a sitting pol may spread eastward across the rolling fields of the republic.
