The California Republican Party decided to marginalize itself further over the weekend, and continue to march lockstep with the right-wing zealots currently running the national GOP. We're not sure if we should be worried, or thankful. After all, it's kind of fun to watch conservatives shoot themselves in the face, over and over again.
At the state GOP's semi-annual convention in Sacramento, party leaders decided to further distance themselves from their elected leader -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Plus, they voted to not help the six Republicans who broke the budget stalemate get reelected. Nice. If all goes well, those six seats will be won by Democrats in 2010, giving the majority party the two-thirds vote it needs to pass some real progressive legislation.
So thanks GOP. And keep getting your marching orders from Rush Limbaugh and Michael Savage. They'll lead you right off a cliff.
