The point: America really has become two warring camps, worse even than Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards. And Brown’s California is leading only one of them.
We know all this, of course. But what we tend to overlook is that two distinct political cultures have formed. And are firming up. While Brown signs legislation giving illegal immigrants the right to have a drivers license, 34 states have passed voter I.D. laws of some kind, many of them this year. While California is moving to make gun ownership even stricter, voters in Colorado last month bounced out two state senators in recall elections because they had voted to ban magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. Just last week, the Wisconsin attorney general put out a press release touting the fact that his office had issued its 200,000th permit in the two years since that state passed its concealed-carry law; he bragged about how his office can process more than 1,000 concealed-carry applications a week, no problem.
