Our New Governor Is An Old Joke

So you must know the old joke (claimed by the Ukranians, but also mangled almost beyond recognition by software developers) about the two envelopes that the predecessor leaves for the successor to open in the first crisis, and then the second, worse crisis. The first envelope has a note that says, "Blame me!" The second note says, "Prepare two envelopes!" Too bad our current governor already has used up her first envelope during her first month in office.

Glad we have entered the "responsibility era" and fixed Arizona's unique and unusual governing procedure that allowed Gov. Napolitano, all by herself, to control the state's fiscal policy. Now we have a system that will require the GOP-controlled legislature to pass budgets each year. Oh, wait.
