I miss 2006.  That was the year when Democrats didn’t mind governors asserting control over their own administrations. In 2006, Governor Jim Doyle (D for Dem) announced that his administration would simply stop enforcing the minimum mark-up law for ethanol.

It’s official. There is almost no level of bad conduct that will get you thrown out of the state assembly.

The phrase was “you are the chink in Luther’s armor.” Has that word — […]
