Holy Botox!

Be careful when you open this link!  The picture of Queen Christine is huge and it startled me for a second there!

Dems in control but not in sync as Legislature opens

I think I agree with the premise of this article–we have a lot of Democrat infighting on the way.  Queen Christine spent her first term expanding the scope of Washington State government, creating new programs and increasing funding to old ones.  There are a lot of favors owed to unions, environmentalists and Indian tribes after a contentious campaign but she’s also pledged not to raise taxes.  Something’s gotta give!

Oh, and my favorite quote from this article:

“‘Everybody’s puppy got squashed,’ said Rep. Hans Dunshee, D-Snohomish, chairman of the House Capital Budget Committee.”
