You go, Gov!

Go get it from them that got it, that is. Andrew reports…
Minutes ago, at Senator Jeanine Kohl-Welles' sixteenth annual post-election analysis fundraiser, Gregoire declared emphatically that cuts cannot be the only answer to the $2.6 billion shortfall the state is facing. "It's not an option," Gregoire said firmly, to rousing cheers and applause from assembled Democrats.
Where was that Governor Gregoire last year? And what's the Speaker got to say about this opportunity wrapped in a crisis? Is it finally time for a tax on high incomes?

Mr. Speaker wasn't in attendance at the Kohl-Welles shindig. In fact, I don't remember ever seeing him at any of her events.

The Senate Majority Leader was in the house, however, and she seemed just about as pleased to hear the Guv's fightin' words as were the rest of us.

Good to hear about Senator Brown, but I've never pegged her as part of the problem. The Speaker is somewhat more, ahem, risk-averse...
