Governator, “Girlie Men” Agree on Budget

Governor Schwarzenegger and Democratic legislators announced agreement on a new budget last night. The Governator put a positive face on the deal, saying: “I’m a very happy governor today because we just have agreed on a budget. It’s a budget that California needs and that the people of California deserve.”
In fact, though, it appears from this report that Schwarzenegger ultimately gave in on all of the issues that remained in dispute between the parties. Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez proclaimed his satisfaction with the deal, with, I suspect, more sincerity than the Governor: “This is a budget that leaves no Californian behind.” I’m afraid he may be right.
