We Hardly Knew Ye

The fall special session is all but dead.

One of the Legislature's first acts of the (1st) 2005 special session was to adjourn immediately after the session's start at midnight; at the time, I called it their giving Gov. Pawlenty the finger. It seems to have happened again, only this time in advance of the session. There are certainly worthy items on the docket (or the "menu"?), but it seems unlikely that they are so important as to merit a special session in and of themselves.

This whole build-up and letdown are just more signs that Gov. Pawlenty can't get the job done. First he allowed his government to shut down and is now unable to get his own party in line for a special session. What will he fail at next?
