• A Classic from SacBee’s Dan Walters from his Live Chat today after Gov. Brown State of the State on CapitolAlert

    January 18th, 2012 by admin Categories: Blogs Tags: , , , ,

    A question came up as to whether the part-time legislature ballot initiative was a good idea, and would it pass.  Dan responded with this classic line. [Italics mine]

    It’s like all the other one-shot nostrums for fixing governance in California – think term limits – that promise but don’t deliver because the problems are more deeply rooted than that. But given the very low standing of the Legislature, if it made the ballot I would not be surprised to see it pass. Handing out big staff raises, drunken driving, carrying guns onto airplanes and shoplifting don’t exactly endear the Legislature to a stressed-out electorate.

    As they say…priceless. Whole chat here.
