“The California Democratic Party utterly dominates state politics because of its huge coalition of union members, trial lawyers, environmentalists, Asian-Americans, Latinos and African-Americans.”

They left out women and young adults! And the Christ-haters! WTF?  Why not just say democrats “dominate” CA state politics because people? This pretty much sums up so much that is wrong with Republicans – a very, very twisted world view that they would be the majority and in control but for a bunch of Republican-hating special interests only interested in grabbing and exercising political power. Talk about projection! I mean, it couldn't possibly be that a majority of Californians might actually just want to make the world a better place, less poor, cleaner, better educated, less sick, more employed, better access to weed, respectful of civil rights and privacy (women’s’ rights, minorities’ rights, gay rights), separation of church and state, pro-democracy, etc..  That’s just crazy talk.

Maybe the California Republican Party utterly does not dominate state politics because of its petty coalition of angry old while men, and greedy people who would rather not be taxed than have a democratic society try to improve our collective lots in life, and evangelical Christians who want to shove their religion down our throats and up women’s vaginae, and people who hate unions and think the only purpose of government is to benefit the rich, and people who think corporations are people, have religion, and should be free to pollute the world or foist unsafe and dangerous things on the rest of us for profit or because AMERICA.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
