As most of my readers already know, several members of the RMA attended the Governor’s State of the State speech yesterday at the behest of the Governor’s office and House leadership. Afterwards, they got a private blogger press conference with Governor Owens and some photo-ops.
First, the famous picture, originally posted on Clay’s site:

Jim highlights the vapid response of a so-called “progressive” to RMA’s activities yesterday.
More analysis is sure to come.
