Talking heads for the national media

Hugh Hewitt provides a handy guide in the Daily Standard for media bookers in need of wisdom on the recall, and the Orange County Republican radio pundit includes some Democats and noncombatants in the bunch. He calls Zev Yaroslavsky a good talker and arguably the state's smartest Democrat, and gives props to Patt Morrison, Kerman Maddox, Jill Stewart, Dan Walters, Sherry Bebitch Jeffe and others (including a nice plug for L.A. Observed, thanks). He also praises Ruben Martinez at the rather left Pacific News Service as "super television." Hewitt says the out-of-staters need all the help they can get:

Watching the East Coast media attempt to cover the California recall is like watching Tim McCarver call a Dodgers game while Vin Scully looks on without a mike.

He used another pithy baseball analogy yesterday on his blog, about the poll showing Gray Davis with less than 20% approval. "If there was ever the political equivalent of the Mendoza line, that's it."
