California lawmakers are the latest politicians to don hoodies to protest the killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.Of course not. Democrats don't enforce rules against their own.
Some members of the Senate and Assembly wore hooded sweat shirts on the floor of each chamber Thursday and adjourned the day's session in memory of the 17-year-old. Martin, who was black, was shot to death Feb. 26 by a neighborhood watch volunteer in a gated Florida community.
California Democrats spoke against racial profiling and called for an investigation into the shooter, who said he acted in self-defense.
Hats are prohibited in the state Legislature, but no lawmaker was reprimanded.
I think it's time to put a measure on the ballot reducing our legislature to part-time status so they won't have time to do stupid stuff like this. It's none of their business how Florida handles the investigation into the Trayvon Martin shooting.
Would the Florida legislature like to have a crack at solving California's problems while we're at it? They'd probably do a better job.
