California's Year of the Nanny

This has been the Year of the Nanny in California politics. There was Meg Whitman's undocumented nanny who accused her of not paying her enough, which was perhaps the death knell to Whitman's gubernatorial campaign (okay, technically, that was last year). Then there was Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's secret lover, who was also his housekeeper and the mother of their love child.

While these gossipy news bits have provided us reporters with endless material for bad composite art, the nanny issue that will actually have the most lasting consequences is the Domestic Worker's Bill of Rights, AB 889.
