As a Texan, no Rick Perry?!

If any article contains the word 'worst' and the following word is 'governor' I expect to see his name there.
 
2013-08-21 08:16:46 PM
Well, this is what happens when you prioritize partisan garbage over actually, you know, governing.
 
2013-08-21 08:17:06 PM
And he was reelected with virtually no opposition.  It sucks to live on a beautiful little blue island in a sea of red.

You forgot Marco Rubio. He's after somewhere after Romney (probably after Ryan and before Paul)

Christie was briefly in there until last October.

Maybe the Republicans can convince Pat McCrory to run and North Carolina can rid itself of that ass.

Rafael Edward Cruz is the savior of the United States of America.

/Even my auto-correct knows how to spell his first name which makes him all powerful and a true leader of auto-correctable words.
 
2013-08-21 08:31:27 PM
Jindal, Perry and Brownback in a cage match to the death.  It's the only way.
 
2013-08-21 08:33:20 PM
PPP's latest also found Jindal, who's thought to be considering a 2016 bid

I'm gonna need to see his birth certificate...

I am just glad he is going away soon. Too bad anyone who will be elected will be just as bad.

You're comparing bladder cancer to rectal - both bad, though which is worse is a very tough call.

Ohioan here. A guy at the bar last night was telling me Kasich is the "new Jack Kemp" and the "conscience of the Republican party." I should have cut him off and called him a cab.

Noticed 2 things that surprised me. One was that Jeb Bush, the most moderate of the bunch, polled so well. Two, was that over 70% of mostly conservative responders favored background checks for gun sales, including sales at shows and the internet.
 
2013-08-21 09:22:17 PM
My favorite part of TFA is the second set of polling data. It shows that a full 29% of people polled who voted for Mitt Romney have an unfavorable opinion (13%), or are unsure of their opinion (16%), of Abraham Lincoln, making him less popular than Drew Farking Brees (8% unfavorable, 9% unsure among Romney voters), and only slightly more favorable than that stellar example of the human race, Sean Payton (8% unfavorable, 25% unsure).

Slaves emancipated? Boo!!!
Football? Yay!!!
"Convicted" (by the league) scumbag? I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, cuz he's coaching "my" team...

I think the GOP just thought Sharon Anglew was cool, but not messiah material. She was like supporting cast, but not worth her own spinoff show.

There's so many to choose from, though... And just when you think they can't get any more ridiculous, well, the GOP goes and finds themselves another spectacular moron.

Wouldn't be so bad if they all weren't so goddamned regressive and mean-spirited assholes, as well.

How the hell is the answer not Tom "I shielded a child molester while I was Attorney General then piously tried to look like a hero about it while Governor" Corbett, aka Tom "I'm holding the entire Philadelphia School District hostage to break the teachers' union because fark you, poor kids" Corbett, aka Tom "I gave away billions of dollars of fracking rights so that hundreds of communities faced environmental catastrophe and we didn't even make a dime off it" Corbett?

Jindal had planned to introduce a "revenue neutral" plan of eliminating state income tax and replacing with higher sales taxes. This about as blatantly regressive a tax scheme I've seen. If it's revenue neutral (it isn't, BTW), why even bother with it if not to pander to your wealthy buddies? The plan was so stupid that even state Republican lawmakers urged him to shelve it.

And who can forget PIYUSH Jindal offering tax dollars for religious schools while not subjecting them to the same scrutiny and academic standards as public ones. One of the schools that signed up for that sweet, sweet state money was a small, windowless room and a Jesus DVD curriculum. Remember when your high school history teacher was hungover so he put on some video to shut the class up? It's like that, only all the time.

Louisiana used to elect blue governors all the time. As recently as Jindal's predecessor (Blanco, who messed up Katrina) the gov. was a Democrat. Edwin Edwards, despite being crooked as a corkscrew, was one of Louisiana's most beloved governors ever. This state swung so hard to the right, so quickly that it made your head spin.

Also, what's with all these assholes afraid of using their ethnic-sounding names if they're America citizens? Couldn't be that you know many of your voters are xenophobic and/or racist jerks, eh? "Nikki" Haley, "Ted" Cruz, PIyush among many others. Barack Obama may have gone by "Barry" as a youth, but in his professional and political career the man at least had the balls to use his real name. What are you all afraid of?
