Uh Maurice Johanssen got his price for passing the Rats tax heavy pork laden budget. He's the only Republican Senator who could vote for it since he doesn't need to face the voters in his district again. I noticed he's described by the liberal media with the glowing adjective "maverick." That laudatory praise is showered only on two other Republicans one can think of, Jim Jeffords and Johnny McCain. Its good to know Mojo is right in their league. And by the way, the budget is still DOA in the State Assembly.

Heard that. I wonder if state workers are now on minimum wage. Also, nice observations on "MoJo". Maverick my #ss. Sellout. I'll donate to any future opponent in any run for office in the future...
