Schwarzenegger's drunken-sailor spending plan thwarted by Republicans

Due to gerrymandering, Republicans make up a tiny minority of the California legislature. Fortunately, some actions require more than a simple majority.

Governor Schwarzenegger's massive debt-and-spending plan won't make the ballot
, because Republicans stuck together and rejected it.

Last November, California's retarded voters voted to continue the gerrymandering system. It does result in fewer Republicans in the legislature, but it also results in safe, conservative districts for the Republicans that remain. That means you tend to get real conservatives rather than moderate RINOs in those seats. And a minority of true conservatives who stick to their principles is enough to block some of Schwarzenegger's dumber ideas.
