MICKEY KAUS: It’s Blue vs. Blue In California:
With California Republicans seemingly stuck in permanent minority status, unable to even block laws requiring a supermajority, the future of the state depends on debates within the Democratic party, notes Ben Boychuk. School choice and pension reform are the obvious issues pitting special interests and elements of the left against what Boychuk calls “conventional liberal and business-friendly Democrats.” (No neoliberals?) At this point the smartest thing for California Republicans to do might be to become Democrats. Then at least the moderate factions within the governing party would have more troops.
