The pluses and the minuses.

So, OK New Jersey has a new governor. At least in January. The people have spoken - and we all know how intelligent the people are. They're the same people that have made American Idol a top-rated TV show and Jessica Simpson a top-rated recording artist. Suffice it to say, I have no faith in the voice of the people.
The enemy of the state, Jon Corzine can begin packing while our newest, bestest buddy Chris Christie (who curiously has two identical names) moves into the governor's house and will supposedly make things right between the state and its taxpayers (us).
Meanwhile, when is the last time you saw taxes go down or some long-term government decision go the way of the common man? I'll give you a chance to think about it. Take all the time you need.
OK ... ready?
Never, that's when.
So, your new governor has promised to right all the wrongs done by the Evil Empire led by the last guy. That's nice. Write it down, because you don't want to forget what he said in four years when you're voting for the next guy who promises to right all the wrongs done by the last guy you elected.
Can you see where I'm going with this?
Better yet, can you see where you're going?
