So the Republicans are coming to town to slash the state budget, and as we said yesterday, Gov. Perdue’s a step ahead of them with a directive to every department: Tell me where you’d cut 5 percent, 10 percent or 15 percent of your budget.

Well, as Rob Schofield says, you can’t make this stuff up: Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, an elected official in his own right(-wing) after all, says he can’t cut a dime. And he’s a Republican!

Wouldn’t be prudent, I believe he told an aide in his best George H.W. Bush imitation.

OK, then how about getting us a good price on that giant grocery cart you bought with state money?

Just kidding. Love the cart. Love it the way you tax-and-spend, Commissioner.
