“If you can't take a stand on Prop. 23, I don't know what you will take a stand on.” — Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Barbara was critical in last week's televised debate of Carly Fiorina's failure to take a stand, any stand, regarding Proposition 23 suspending California's nascent cap-and-trade program. State Republican leaders felt distress about that and Carly has (surprise!) come to see it their way.
Maybe she was hesitant because of the company she'll be keeping. Or should I say ‘companies.’ Oil companies to be specific; out-of-state oil companies to be precise. Recently it was revealed that the infamous Koch brothers will be among them.

If you think out-of-state oil companies have California's best interests at heart, go ahead, vote for Proposition 23. Because it is their baby, all the way.
