Is California an Idiocracy?

CalWatchdog is equally honked at both Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman, given their campaigns have been comprised of inanities and accusing each other of things that are basically irrelevant. Plus, I might add, both have studiously mentioned virtually nothing of substance about the budget and pension problems.

Only an idiocracy would be fixated on these nonissues as we head into the final weeks of an important campaign.

Which is why we end up with absurd scenes such as the one at Rawsome Foods, a health food store in Venice. As reported in July by the Los Angeles Times (and referred to this month by comedian Stephen Colbert), “With no warning one weekday morning, investigators entered an organic grocery with a search warrant and ordered the hemp-clad workers to put down their buckets of mashed coconut cream and to step away from the nuts.” The four officers drew their guns and then found what they were looking for in the fridge: “unmarked jugs of raw milk.”
