I understand they served hot dogs at Moonbeam's inauguration. This is highly appropriate since it is the first of many weenies we're going to be served from his administration.

Rickshaw, are we going to have to see your snide potshots for his whole term? Think positive my man. I voted for Arnold but in the end his on the job performance was less than memorable and 2011 is a new year, we all need to pull together and drop the partisan antipathy since the election has come and gone.

Hope springs eternal, but it seems Pollyanna-ish to think that Brown will be anything but the tax-and-spender he has always been. The Senate and Assembly, like Brown, are controlled by unions and entitlement recipients. Get ready for more government hands stealing your money under color of the tax laws!
