And this is news because . . . ?

Turns out the Governor of California, who is term-limited out of office after 2010, who got his only shot at elected office through a booby-prize election in 2003, who campaigned on whooped-up resentment against the previous governor for raising vehicle registration fees, who then presided over an economic mess so dreadful that the state has begun paying people with IOUs, and who walked away from half the commitments made to his party during his original campaign, won't be running for the U.S. Senate in the next cycle.

Talk about dog-bites-man.

The only thing that's even remotely newsworthy here is the fact that state Republicans have so little to work with that they're still hoping he'll change his mind, even though a February survey matching him head-to-head against Barbara Boxer had him losing 54% to 30%.
