<<There's a party that controls CA government? The government that can't even enact a budget? The govenrment that does a great imitation of grid-lock? That government?>>
Of course there are various mpolitical parties that control California government ---- not necessarily Ds and Rs. Certainly labor unions are one of those political parties/political interest groups that control aspects of California government when they have the power to do so.
I think we saw that power demonstrated in Minnesota recently, when unions felt their power threatened pretty directly.
You are thinking of political parties in too narrow a sense. Political parties are any political coalition aimed at controlling some aspect of government power.
