Carcieri takes firm stand on changes to spending plan says todays ProJo. He's going to stand tough folks. Also, the Separation of Powers Bill may be finally moving again and the Legislature would like it on the Governor's desk befofe July 4 to sign. Cross your fingers, the moment when Li'l Rhody finally enters the 20th century politically is almost at hand. (Yeah, I know, it's the 21st century now...do you get the point?)
I shouldn't do this, because it's too easy, but Howie Kurtz in his Reliable Source Column today has a blurb about the latest from our very own Patrick Kennedy. To quote Kurtz:
"As sometimes happens with Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.), he let his mouth race ahead of his brain Wednesday night at a gathering of Young Democrats at the Washington nightspot Acropolis. After presidential candidate Howard Dean spoke, Kennedy delivered an impassioned peroration against President Bush's tax cut. We hear that Kennedy told the crowd: 'I don't need Bush's tax cut. I have never worked a [bleeping] day in my life.' With that he got the audience's attention -- the dropping-jaws kind. 'He droned on and on, frequently mentioning how much better the candidates would sound the more we drank,' a witness told us. 'Finally, he had to be stopped by a DNC volunteer.' Kennedy's spokesman, Ernesto Anguilla, told us yesterday: 'He was talking to the crowd; it was a rally-the-troops kind of speech about the tax cut. He was energizing the crowd and got caught up in it and used an unfortunate word, which he regrets using. . . . And no one pulled him off the stage.' "
That's our senior Representative folks, proud do not have worked a day in his life. Good thing he's so in touch with the common man, huh?
