Krusty Konservative: Stuck with stupid

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

I'm With Stupid. We are all with stupid. It's because we elected
stupid as our Governor... Governor Culver is all excited because the
state's revenue for July 2009 was $4.7 million above what it was at
the same time last year. While gross tax receipts are up 1.2%, the
non-partisan Legislative Services Agency says that net receipts are
down 6.1%. The LSA also says that the increase in sales tax receipts
was due to the change from a local option school infrastructure tax to
a statewide school infrastructure tax. Governor Culver, who is
responsible for creating a $1 BILLION budget gap for next year's
budget, did acknowledge is his press release that the state continues
to have a negative growth rate.
