    It appears Maine is headed for a shutdown. State legislature reached a compromise and LePage vetoed it.

    I'm just glad Snyder was cheap, er smart enough to veto the Right to Life license plate the other day. That would have been a nice waste of money to defend.

    While I know this is a #Priorities comment, I don't really have a problem with a dove season. Sandhill cranes are another matter.

    @dick_nixon: People often ask why I hate Christie and Walker and that type so much. It's because they dare think they can play ball in Yankee Stadium.

    Iowa's GOP is targeting pensions under the guise of a "free" study done by a libertarian think tank. Yeah, that's going to be unbiased.

    Never mind that they changed IPERS about 6 years ago, and the fixes are eating away at the unfunded liability.

    Of course they are. Don't you know that homeless people don't have the right to vote, since they don't live at a fixed address, and rarely have gov't ID?

    Dems are coming after VA-2.

    Taylor (the R incumbent) seems like the usual GOP numbskull, but neither of these challengers is particularly strong. VA-2 is the Eastern Shore, which means white and poorly educated, which screams GOP country. The DCCC thinks it has a shot here so, um, I guess?

    Connecticut seems well on its way to following Illinois....

    The city of Hartford, Conn., has retained the law firm of Greenberg Traurig LLP as restructuring counsel as it weighs whether to file for bankruptcy, officials said Thursday.

    Hartford has a deficit approaching $50 million and has asked the state for help managing its fiscal crisis. But the state has its own budget troubles and failed to pass a spending plan to close a two-year hole of $5.1 billion before the fiscal year ended on June 30.

    An anti-trans bill has failed to get the required number of signatures in Washington state.

    And let it be known that the conservatives in Washington found out that there aren't that many people in Spokane and the Tri-Cities...

    This is how I found out. Basically, it was a team effort to get this thing defeated. Anti-trans groups tried last year with the same thing, and were defeated then, too.

    Good to hear. Somehow though I don't think those folks will run out of money.
