Isn’t it wonderful to have a brief season of good will that even extends into the political world this year? With a new administration headed into Santa Fe, a period of high hopes reigns at least for a few weeks.
Our major state newspaper feels hearts are so light that it can feature a front page article on our governor-elect’s pajamas. The inference is that readers have little reason to consider anything more important than Susana Martinez’s “sleepy pants” at this time of year.
At least New Mexicans can be content with the knowledge that our incoming governor is willing to abide inane questions and still be pleasant. There are many things we don’t know about our new governor but her sleeping attire is not one of them.
The latest state revenue projections indicate we may not be in for as big a shortfall as previously predicted, so Gov. Martinez may be able to keep her promise about balancing the budget without touching public schools, Medicaid or tax increases. Life isn’t so bad.
Of course on the federal level, it isn’t quite so rosy. A lame duck session sandwiched between a change in congressional power isn’t the recipe for much good will.
