May they shrink up and blow away

Kevin Drum surveys California politics:

It’s like living in a Lewis Carroll novel, except with real people. Assuming you still consider California Republicans to be real people, that is.

The inspiration?

In order to tackle a massive deficit, Democrats were willing to cut a billion dollars out of transit funding — a traditional Democratic priority — and Schwarzenegger vetoes it because they didn’t also include a tax cut. As a way of tackling a massive deficit. And the California Republican caucus cheers.

It’s time for a goddam constitutional convention.

    I used to be kind of proud to be from Compton.

    Wow. California is really messed up (and this is an ex-Californian speaking).
