Coup In Review: Paterson Won't Sign Bogus Bills, Calls 7 p.m. Session
The Democrats' sneak session, claiming a passing Republican senator gave their 31-member meeting a quorum, did not fly with Governor Paterson. He has refused to sign the bills passed in that session, and calls instead for a 7 p.m. session -- no monkey business this time! "Once again, the do-nothing Senate has surpassed our greatest fears and contempt," said the Gov. That's the sort of tough talk that has rocketed Paterson all the way to a 21 percent approval rating in a new Marist poll. We won't be around to report on tonight's session; you can give a couple of cats a cloth moused stuffed with catnip and get some idea of what will transpire.
