Early in Tuesday's meeting of the House Appropriations Committee, Republican chairman Rep. John Kavanagh opined (courtesy AZ Capitol Times) (emphasis mine)-
"I guess it's great to be a Democrat in a situation like this," he said. "Democrats, unfortunately, are myopic. They don't see beyond the current year. They don't see 2011."
While he was quick to criticize what her perceived at shortsighted thinking on the part of Democratic members of the lege, he ignored, proudly, his own.
From the Video archive of the meeting (available on this page if the previous link doesn't work - 5/5, House Approps I) at approximately the 2:59 mark, during a discussion of the Reps' scheme to get their paws on municipal development fees illustrate this (emphasis mine) - after a municipality had given a certain amount of their available development fees to the state, "a city or town would be free to use any and all impact fees for their immediate needs."
Umm...yeah, John, whatever.
For decreeing that Democrats should look to the future with their ideas but almost immediately flip-flopping and demonstrating that Republicans are incapable of doing the same, John Kavanagh earns...easily...this edition of the John Sydney McCain Crappie Award.
