Still can't figure it out hey.....
California's Legislature is stuck in a bit of a quagmire. But it's actually an opportunity for the generally unpopular Republicans.
However, as budget time fleshes out to something workable, an opportunity presents itself in the shape of some form of consensus. Brown and co., may be willing to do things they wouldn't otherwise do (reduce pensions).
GOP votes are no longer needed to pass since a simple majority is all that's required.
So a chance to either wedge the gap between parties even further and perhaps propel to 2012, or, a chance for Dems to squeeze some concessions.
