California Republicans shouldn't be griping

California Republicans shouldn't be griping about Richard Riordan not hiring enough Republican political hacks. After a successful run as Los Angeles mayor, he's the GOP's best shot at turning the lights out on Gov. Gray "Who turned out the lights?" Davis. Is Riordan a pure conservative? No, but California is a weird state that has a hard time electing die-hard conservatives (Ronald Reagan being an exception). When your party's highest office held is Secretary of State, electability must trump ideological purity.

What I really think is some of Riorden's critics are miffed that their political friends aren't working on the campaign.
