Poll: Worst state governor?

The competition is fierce out there. Ponder this for a few minutes: Rick "Rev. Goodhair" Perry made it onto this list by the skin of his teeth, barely edging out the extremely corrupt Nikki Haley of SC and the religiously insane Sam Brownback of KS.

All are R's, of course.

2. Tough decision!

I really have a problem with Walker, but they are all awful.

3. McDonnell runs a very close second with his war on women.

I only put him second because Walkers war on the middle class/poor effects both genders.

4. I'd add Nikki Haley.

I think the only thing that keeps her from being as extreme as Walker is, believe it or not, the repub-controlled house and Senate, who block her efforts pretty regularly.

14. Alas, there was only room for ten options

and I needed one for "Did I miss any?"

Haley didn't miss out by much, though.

6. I can only speak from experience.

Sean Parnell (or as we like to call him "Seanoco Parnellips") -- former ConocoPhillips lobbyist and attorney for Exxon during the spill litigation -- makes me miss Sarah. He has his lips firmly planted on the backside of every big oil and resource extraction corp. that comes along, salmon be damned. He doesn't like wolves or bears, either.

7. Chris Christie

This bloviating egomaniac has destroyed the NJ state budget while massaging is ego on the national political stage. He is an utter failure with about as much compassion has Attila the Hun.

10. I picked Rick Perry,

Texas is the uninsured capital of the US with over 6.3 million; yet Rick Perry refused to comply with Obamacare....and has repeatedly refused to comply with other federal laws (ie extension of unemployment benefits) then quietly accepts the cash. He likes to talk secession and will sell off every piece of this state for drilling if given the chance.

12. All of the above...

More than one and probably all of them are Kock suckers. I was watching "Koch brothers exposed" today and I just couldn't finish watching it. I knew that they were really really bad. But, they are also really really evil and they don't even care that they are really really evil.

but he just doesn't seem to hate poor and working people with quite the same intensity as most of the others.

23. He just missed the cut

along with Haley and Brownback. Like I said, the competition's fierce out there: Mitch the Bitch just doesn't seem to be quite as evil as fellow union-busters Kasich, Snyder and Walker.

25. Worst Dem? Quite possibly.

Admittedly, he is pretty bad. But can you seriously compare him to Perry or the others on this list?

A "Worst Dem Governor" poll would feature him and Jerry Brown.

27. I stand by my choice.

People of average intelligence recognize that Perry et al are terrible. But Cuomo pretends to be the common folks' friend. That makes him far worse, in my opinion.

I fully respect the fact that others have different opinions.

I have to live with, that scored him extra points.

Because Texas has so many people and the highest rate of uninsured. He also spends tax dollars fighting EPA clean air laws, which directly kills people.
