What she said: “This address will differ from those I have delivered in the past, because it will be my last. And while that fact might be considered an applause line by some in the Legislature, I will miss you all when my time in office ends later this year.”
– Gov. Linda Lingle, in her January 25 State of the State address
What she meant: My dysfunctional relationship with state lawmakers is such a joke, I might as well make a joke about it. Oh, and when my term ends, I won’t miss them. At all.
