Jim Doyle, Lots-o-Balls
1. Screw up the state budget
2. Lie about it, especially when you're up for re-election
3. Make it a LOT worse (social programs)
4. Spend our money to get in front of Congress and cry about the awful state of your state
If this were the real world, your ass would be fired. Why? Because in the real world, those you were whining to would ask you real questions. Government is the only place you can get away with wide-scale failure. Just wait until Obama gets his hands on the place.
I've said it before, I'll say it again. Too many years in government puts you into la-la land. It's the easiest way to become aristocracy, in this country.
