Rupert Murdoch could pick the next California governor 

Mickey Kaus wants a candidate in the upcoming Caifornia re-call election of Governor Gray Davis to be picked by a reality show:

... Memo to R.J. Cutler, producer of "American Candidate," the ambitious reality show designed to run someone for President but recently cut loose by Fox: Here's your reality show! Take all your candidate-finding machinery and run some political Clay Aiken for governor in the California recall election. It will be cheaper, faster, and way more suspenseful. And your candidate could easily win.
Wouldn't the final vote, probably between a liberal and a conservative, be highly controversal? Can you imagine the conspiracy theories if the conservative candidate wins because of a late surge in voting? Would someone then sue for a re-count?
