Bloodletting in the California GOP

As expected, the long knives are out for the "Sacramento Six" -- the Republican members of the state legislature who voted to raise taxes to end the latest budget stalemate.

Sen. Abel Maldonado's political career is likely over. Not only will he be opposed in the primary if he runs for statewide office, but there's a group that wants him recalled now. Their awesome tagline: "It's time to raise some Cain on Abel!" And out in San Bernardino County, Assemblyman Anthony Adams will likely face a recall and a primary challenge, and he's been booted as chair of the county Republican Party.

I'll give the GOP activists credit: they've made raising taxes look like a selfless and heroic act.
