The Contra Costa Times nails it with this story in this morning’s paper. But they were frankly too timid in the headline.Â The California Republican Party IS the Party of NO.Â No Ifs, ands, or buts about it.
But you have to love this quote:
“Their ideology has taken them to a point where they are no longer capable of compromise,” said Larry Gerston, a political science professor at San Jose State. “They’re marginalizing themselves. They lost three seats in the Assembly, so you would think that would’ve been a lesson. Nationally, their party is tattered. Increasingly, people will hold Republicans accountable for holding up the state at political gunpoint.”
