It is now one week until the mandatory (and often ignored) budget deadline. Unfortunately (for us) most of the legislature seems to be much more interested in the whereabouts of Senator Calderon than in taking care of business. The situation will, almost without a doubt, lead into the usual flurry of idiocy, stupidity, venality, lame-ass deals and finger-pointing. The only newish thing this time around is that the Republicans are totally irrelevant as the Democrat-Socialists have a 2/3 majority in both houses. They can do what they want, constrained only by the size of their balls (which are huge) and the depth of their conscience (which is essentially zero).
It would almost be fun to watch if it wasn't so tragic, stupid and potentially dangerous.
