I took the lazy route and decided I'd let candidatecamera.com make the choice for me today - and, as always, they did not disappoint...


Not wanting to campaign until March, soon to leave us is...
CHRISTOPHER SPROUL (D)

Website: www.sproulforgovernor.com

Occupation: Environmental Attorney (Partner, Environmental Advocates [San Francisco])

Position on the recall: Against

Video of him surfing on website?: Yes (sproulforgovernor.com)

Quote: "The recall is a charade. I figured the more people on the ballot, the more ridiculous this whole thing will look. None of the candidates in the recall deserve to replace Gov. Davis, who rightly won the last general election."

Fatalism: "I think it unlikely I will be elected (as Im primarily running to urge people to vote No on the Recall)."

"Subscribers" to message board (quicktopic.com): Zero

Strangest link on website: www.republicansagainsttherecall.com

Second strangest link on website: Only link on his "Satire" page leads to Recall Island (sfgate.com) (Shockwave Flash)

Gnarly: Upcoming political rally strangely resembles gathering at beach to surf

Double threat: Not only member of the California Bar, but "also admitted to practice law in federal district court in Hawaii." That probably comes in handy

Confidence: "If, by random chance, I am elected..."

Aren't they?: "Just as people are required to pass drivers' exams to drive cars, I think gun owners should be required to pass certain minimum tests of their ability to manage their guns responsibly to acquire a license to own guns."

Interesting tactic: "Press releases" page is predominantly taken up with pictures of himself...surfing (also some broken links, presumably to more pictures of himself surfing)

So you say he surfs?: First press release begins... "Candidate Sproul has issued a challenge to Arnold to meet him mano a mano, at the beach of his choosing, for a surf contest. Sproul has generously offered to supply the boards. So far, the Schwarzenegger campaign has remained mute in response to the gauntlet thrown. "

Vote for Christopher Sproul, the "can't spell environmental without MENTAL" Candidate

TOMORROW: I'LL PROBABLY FORGET TO GET AROUND TO IT
