last word on prop 77

I endorsed prop 77, but I'm feeling less happy about that. Like Kevin Drum, I set a high threshold for propositions because they're a bad way to govern. He's voting against. Mark Kleiman reiterates his disapproval of 77 here. He reminds me of the anti-prop argument that it would be good to weaken Arnold. As noted above, his "too many D primaries" argument doesn't convince me, and the other arguments against continue to fail to impress me. On the pro side (via the Drum link above), Kash at Angry Bear has data to support my suspicion that CA is gerrymandered for incumbents, not for the party as a whole.

I may vote yes to support Reform Ohio Now, or maybe I'll vote my default no.
