Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Schwarzenegger is Wooing Me
Today I find yet another reason to like the Governator. He just keeps taking up my pet issues. First he gets Californians to agree to fund basically the largest stem cell research initiative on the planet. And today he announces a sensible plan to reform the redistricting process that solidifies support of incumbents and makes it difficult to challenge someone for office.
Yes, it's going to hurt Democrats who are in power in legislature, but you know what... it's the right thing to do. It should be non-partisan people who decide on election districts, and Arnold's idea of a panel of 3 retired judges is as good as any I've heard.
If we had this nationwide, Tom DeLay would not have been able to kick out 6 Reps from Texas by drawing discounts like the one that is a couple miles wide, and 200-miles long from the Mexican border up through Austin.
