Liberal love for Napolitano

RCubed pointed to this article lavishing praise on Governor Napolitano from the American Prospect. According to their website, "the American Prospect was founded in 1990 as an authoritative magazine of liberal ideas, committed to a just society, an enriched democracy, and effective liberal politics."

Its a very interersting read that covers the span of Napolitano's career and talks at great lengths about how much they think she has a great sense of humor. The most hilarious line from the article however, was probably unintentional:

"Though Napolitano successfully turned a $1 billion deficit into a surplus during her first term, the state is back in the red this year, putting the conservative opposition in no mood to create new programs. "

As you can see, she is personally responsible for fixing the budget deficit the first time, but she has had nothing to do with the latest financial troubles. You see, the "state" did that. Those old grumpy conservatives simply weren't in the mood to pass $2 billion in spending that the state couldn't afford. Bet they skipped dessert too.
