What the hell is WITH this man? Who the hell does he think he IS? Does he think he's just got a deep suntan? I guarantee that nobody else thinks that.
I love the California Republican Party's reason for disliking the initiative, though. It's not that they disagree; they just think it'll make them look ... well, like they actually are. When you're trying to woo minority voters by saying, "No, really, we're the kinder, gentler party now! Buchanan ran away! Ignore the right wing of the party, really!" ... well, then, something that easily appears to be yet another minority bashing law really doesn't fit into the plans, does it?
That said, I expect that even if the initiative passes (and make no mistake, if it gets on the ballot, it will pass), it will wind up being superseded by federal government requirements in almost all areas. The feds seldom accept the excuse, "We don't collect that information" as a reason for not providing it.
