Enough with the federal delegations, time to head to the State level.
When I fled south, I got to leave Rick "Governor Nerd" Snyder, Michigan's CEO:
And when I crossed the border at Texarkana, I inherited Rick "Governor Hair" Perry, Texas' CEO.
Both men are complete Richards who go by Rick. They are also both obscenely
Rich. And, not incidentally, they both have acted like complete Dicks
during their terms in office.
I'm thankful Snyder
actually understood the need to expand Medicaid in Michigan -- and
pushed for it. But I will never, ever, ever forgive Snyder for signing
"Right-to-Work" legislation in Michigan. End of story -- the man is dead
Perry, well, there's not enough space here to talk about him. From the death penalty, to guns, to threatening the Chairman of the Federal Reserve,
to showing zero compassion and intelligence with regard to health
reform, to his stupid secession talk; I sure hope the door smacks his
butt hard on his way out in January, 2015. Of course, we're probably
going to get some one even worse, so... sigh.
this one is a push -- preferably off a cliff, Thelma-and-Louise-style.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to read a few Molly Ivins columns with a
stiff drink nearby.
