With Arnold taking his campaign to the radio talkers who fomented the recall and see themselves as the voice of real conservatives, sympathetic site NewsMax surveys 19 of California's AM hosts, from Michael Reagan to Putnam to Limbaugh. They're split between loyalty to McClintock and realizing Schwarzenegger can win; few seem to actually like Arnold's politics. They're suspicious since, in the view of some, no true conservative would hang with Kennedys or be friends with Rob Lowe, "a guy who's close to Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden," says L.A.'s Larry Elder. Schwarzenegger was on the air this morning with Sacramento host Eric Hogue, who is credited with collecting the first 350 signatures for the recall. Says NewsMax:
*Priorities and Frivolities catches the San Francisco Chronicle in a misinterpretation of Arnold's remarks yesterday.
*Conservative website Xrlq is running brief looks at the minor candidates. He aims to get them all.
*Democracy Now! on KPFK today had guests talking about Schwarzenegger's role with U.S. English and the co-founder's ties to possible hate groups.
*The Note is going dark after today until next Tuesday.
