Duffy is back, at least he was today. And he had a little message, in his own way, for Governor Chet Culver. Brian Duffy worked for The Des Moines Register for about a quarter of a century before the newspaper fired him in what it called a cost-cutting move. Apparently, the Iowa Progress Project found some money in its budget for him. The IPP isn't exactly a fan of Culver or most democrats for that matter. A spokesman told me a Duffy cartoon may not be a one-time thing.
Here's the rest of the release:
Christmas has come and gone yet state employee stockings continue to be filled.
Some state employees are luckier than others. For those not under union contract, they get lumps of coal in the form of layoffs and pay freezes. For AFSCME and union members, they get built in raises and promises of job security. Culver announced last week that non-union state employees wouldn’t be receiving deserved bonus, raises, or promotions. Layoffs are to be expected.

Santa may have brought some criticism for the Gov. But he didn't seem to bring my Cardinals much of anything. Royce Ring? Seriously???
