Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

California's chronic economic, fiscal and political woes have been drawing global media attention, including more than a few comparisons to hapless Greece.

The Atlantic magazine is the latest media outlet to take a potshot at California. Its July/August 2010 issue is devoted to big ideas, such as the concept that women are replacing men in economic, cultural and political prominence - and it does mention Republican candidates for governor and senator, Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina, in that context.

The Atlantic's shot at California, however, is found on its snarky list of "ideas we're having second thoughts about." It places California on the list, without explanation, along with Elizabeth Edwards, special envoys, "quants" (a.k.a. quantitative analysts), capitalism, e-mail, the Senate and the euro.
