Shortest speeches ever

The Assembly failed to pass the budget moments ago (it’s still pending) after Assemblyman John Laird and Roger Niello both got up and spoke about how horrible the budget was — but was better than the worst case.

“This isn’t what everyone liked…but everyone had a greater fear that they are not realizing in this budget,’’ Laird said.

Contrasted against other budget votes (and accompanying histrionics), the Assembly’s presentations which took less than two minutes, must have set a record for brevity. Of course, they *were* called into session at 4 p.m., which means we had to wait around for nearly five hours to appreciate the short speeches..
