GOP Collapses in California

http://politicalwire.com/archives/2012/11/10/gop_collapses_in_california.html

"California has entered "a period of Democratic political control so far-reaching that the dwindling number of Republicans in the Legislature are in danger of becoming mere spectators at the statehouse," the AP reports."

comments are priceless.....

8. OK, California. But I think they are frantically clinging to the tree roots as the River rushes on.

15. Welcome to DU, AlGoreRhythms! LOVE your screen name! };D

Glad you're here. California! We're trying to make it up to everyone for reagan, nixon, howard jarvis, and darrell issa. We have to protect the gains we made this week, and build on them!

9. Congressman Darrell Issa needs a contender

California won't be truly blue until he's relegated to commentator status at Faux.

10. If they do not change, what happened in California will be a federal phenomenon

 

All they will hold are Old South bastion states and nothing else within a decade.

And they must change in the next two years, else it will all be for naught.

Democrats just kind of sit there staring at the wall.

13. Isn't there a line about as goes California...

so goes the nation? Or something? Or at least that used to be how it was...and maybe now again.

Our lips to Dog's Ears. Or something.
