Remember in January, when Chris Christie first announced he'd be delivering that 10 percent income tax cut to New Jersey residents?

If you sort of forgot about it over the past year, you could be forgiven. There was an awful lot of noise about it during budget season, but it's been so long since there's been a peep about this in Trenton that the only place you've been able to read about it is the side of a milk carton, under "Have You Seen Me Lately?"

Well, the governor changed that Monday, when he said the Sandy cleanup might place such a demand on revenue that a tax cut won't be possible. From the story:

Once the center of debate in Trenton, the issue of whether the state can afford a tax cut has faded into the shadows of Hurricane Sandy.

That's actually pretty charitable. The tax cut battle was so faded by the time Sandy came ashore that it could have passed for a vintage pair of jeans. But the storm is at least giving Christie some closure on the tax cut, which he can insist was still viable up until the storm hit.

It doesn't change the fact that Democrats were somewhat unwilling to consider such a cut, in the same way that South Jersey feels about a Meadowlands casino, but he's hoping you don't notice that. At least now he can argue the cut was killed by a storm, and not because revenue projections were too rosy.

I'm even more irreverent on Twitter @joe_arney.
