Fast Eddie Sworn In

This morning our (those of us in Pennsylvania, that is) new governor, Ed "Fast Eddie" Rendell, was sworn in. Is this a Good Thing™ or a Bad Thing™?

Well, Rendell was the former mayor of Philadelphia for many years and did wonders for businesses in Philly, so we can only hope that Rendell will be able to turn-around the failing Pennsylvania economy.

We now rank 48th out of the 50 states in our state deficit. Whee!

Republican Tom "Mr. Homeland Security" Ridge didn't seem to do much for the state, so even though I'm a registered Republican (that's a topic for another day) I voted for Rendell. I'm feeling optimistic that he won't let me down, but then I don't really expect much from him.

You know what they say - the surest way not to be disappointed is to lower your expectations to the point where they're already met.
