A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

An interesting read: I originally saw this during my blogging slowdown, and so I'm just catching up on it now.


It is Aug. 31, and Sen. [Carole] Migden is lobbying on the Assembly floor for her bill, which would require cosmetics manufacturers to advise the state if their products contain cancer-causing ingredients.

Migden's presence is typical. Senators routinely troll the Assembly floor like bass tournament boats on Clear Lake.

As the lawmakers vote, the bill comes up one shy of passage and time is running out.

In a bizarre move, the zealous Democratic senator punches a Republican Assemblyman's yes-vote button.

Houston's startled seatmate, Southern California GOP Assemblyman Bob Huff, watches as Migden then calls for the vote to close.


The original article is here.


On a more serious note, Assembly leaders plan to send a letter to Senate Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, "that will express our unhappiness with what occurred," Houston said. "What happens after that, I don't know."


I'm also curious to see what will happen. A quick check of Migden's site contains no apology, and the California legislature is so polarized that I don't think there are enough moderate Democrats who would see Migden's actions as anything needing censure. But I'd love to be proven wrong.
