Special session off to rip-roarin' start

Governor Pawlenty called a special session immediately, and legislators obliged, meeting for about twenty minutes or so and leaving until Thursday. Today, everybody had a round ofpretend negotiating. At least they admit it.

Nothing is going to happen anytime soon. Rural legislators are already going home, despite the Thursday meeting. Since this is a new session, it's a clean slate. All bills must be reintroduced, there is a committee process, and so forth. Some of that can be circumvented, but it still takes time. Good idea calling session immediately.

I like that Linda Berglin has been the chief negotiator for the DFL these last couple of times. She's the toughest of that bunch.
