Actual Scott Peterson related post

Scott Peterson getting the chair reminded me of how Gray Davis was almost fetishistically tough on crime and hoped to execute people, etc. And that made me think of the Digby Thesis.

One kind of limited way you could summarize the Digby Thesis is that even Democrats who tack to the right somehow wind up being branded as wimps. And Gray Davis, tough-on-crime, (semi) tough on deficits Gray Davis, I think, would second that observation. (I don't know what the cure is; in Gray Davis's case, and Kerry's, a little people skills wouldn't have hurt.)
