ToDaZeD CA *facepalm*

PPIC [Public Policy Institute of California] surveyed 2,001 California adults by landline and cellphone from Nov. 13-20. … sampling error margin of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points among all adults.

[Jerry] Brown’s job approval has hit 48 percent after the passage of Proposition 30

Californians are even giving the state Legislature improved grades, sending lawmakers’ job approval rating to 34 percent among all adults, surpassing 30 percent for the first time since January 2008.

…respondents from around the state and different demographic groups now believe the state will be a better place to live in 2025 than it is now—or at least that there will be no change. Only Republicans remain pessimistic. A majority of that group believe California will be a worse place to live, the poll found.

It takes a long time for Detroitization…

    Mumblix Grumph as the guy who will stay at least 1000 feet away from any television that might possibly have this on.

    Until I clicked, I thought the Liberace thing was a joke.

    Noooo, SteveH——the joke is the part about Californians approving of MoonBeam and the RATz super-majority legislature. File it under: Sick Joke.

    “PPIC”, sounds like a six year old school boy joke when they notice a zipper down..

    Which, I believe it is. Jerry Brown at 48%? California Legislature with any approval rating at all?

    I have seven years until I can comfortably retire, and then, as much as I love the Beauty and Climate of the SoCal, I’m digging up and moving back to Tombstone, Arizona.

    #1, Apotheosis: “Michael Douglas boning Matt Damon” What has been thought cannot be unthought – geez, thanks! Now I’ll have that little video running through my head for the rest of the afternoon (I wonder what’s running through Catherine Zeta-Jones’ mind right now).
    So Governor Moonbeam’s approval rating is up to 48% and the legislature’s rating is up to 34% (still well below 50) and they’re celebrating?! “…respondents from around the state and different demographic groups now believe the state will be a better place to live in 2025 than it is now—or at least that there will be no change.” I guess this can be interpreted that they think that it can’t possibly get any worse. Ha! Guys, think present-day Zimbabwe, Weimar Germany in the ’20′s, or Rome after being sacked in 450 A.D. It can – and probably will – get worse.

    CA legislature,
    the professional wrestling of state legislatures.
    (What? Yeah, Clown College, too.)

    No, that’s not quite right.
    CA legislature,
    the student government council of state legislatures.
    (What? No, fifth grade.)

    Hopefully she’s thinking of trading up to a newer model.

    As many as 48% of the gormless idiots whose lives are so hopelessly pathetic that they won’t hang up on a telephone pollster said…
