California Republican Ghetto Mentality

The Hill reports that California's Republican leadership, both in the state house and in Congress, is walking in lockstep in support of a ballot initiative that would change the way that the state allocates its electoral votes. If the ballot initiative passes, instead of the winner of the statewide vote getting all of the state's electoral votes, the winner of each congressional district would get an electoral vote for that district.

Republicans in California support this initiative because they believe themselves to be perpetual losers. As such, they do not believe that they have ideas with sufficient power and energy to ever turn the political tide in the state.

Given that mentality, they deserve to lose.
