Oompa Loompa Steps?
FITS has got to hand it to House Majority Leader Jimmy Merrill, who busted out what may well be the quote of the year in this morning's edition of the Charleston Post and Courier - a brilliant swipe at the methodical moronisitude of the state's so-called "deliberative body."
"While the House is willing to take great strides to achieve property tax relief, the Senate seems determined to take Oompa-Loompa steps," Merrill said of the current Legislative impasse.
Oompa Loompa steps?
Ouch. Somebody just got Suuuuuurviced!
We're not sure how diminuitive Senate Finance Chairman Hugh "Huge Government in a Little Package" Leatherman took Merrill's remark, but it's a safe bet he's already got RINO communications hack Bob McAlister working on another oped about Chicken Little and the sky falling or something equally nauseating.
Fortunately, we may not have to subject ourselves to the latest incoherent ramblings from Little Roosevelt.
FITS has learned that in spite of all the inter-Chamber bad blood that's been boiling this week, conferees may be close to working out a deal that would provide some measure of property tax relief and allow the state budget to move forward.
