Podcast: Britney for Congress

Comments Off

This week, breaking news about a pop star's quest for elected office... and other more, ahem, real news in California politics and public policy.

Capitol Weekly's Anthony York and I take a look back at the local and national political dramas from last week's California Democratic convention, the latest on health care battles at the state Capitol, the chances for changing the budget process, and the birth of a new bipartisan reform group.

[update: Reason #417 to beware of the internet... this posting has already been linked to by at least one site that tracks the pop singer in question, fully failing to take into consideration the date on the calendar when evaluating the veracity of our conversation about her political aspirations!]
