The map to 2004 

While the Commissioner is handing out awards on Recall 2003, I have one for best one-paragraph post-election analysis. I give it to Hindrocket for this:
A DNC spokesman said that 'California is a Democratic state and will remain so. Arnold proved that, because he ran on Democratic issues as a pro-choice and gay rights candidate.' It strikes me that anyone who thinks the California election was about Arnold being 'pro-choice' wasn't paying attention. Yet this theory may be revealing in a sense. Democrats may really have gotten to the point where they think the defining political issues are abortion and homosexual rights, rather than taxes and job growth. Which is, in large part, how they got into this mess in the first place.
As all the cool kids say, damn skippy.
