4. "Bull" Corbett is unpopular, imagine that?"

http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/attytood/Bull-Corbett-is-unpopular----imagine-that.html

excerpt:

"When he's not busy suppressing the votes of senior citizens and black and Latino people, invading the privacy of Pennsylvanians' lady parts, or mading impossible for working-class kids to attend college, Gov. Tom "Bull" Corbett is busy watching his poll numbers plummet:

The voters disapprove of the way Corbett is handling the state's finances by a margin of 49-36 percent. That margin sinks to a disapproval rating of 53-27 percent when voters are asked about the impact of state budget cuts on universities. Voters oppose those cuts by a margin of 68-28 percent. Corbett's job approval rating is now split at 41-41 percent, a six-point drop from December.

Who would have guessed that alienating the 80 percent of the state who aren't middle-aged white males (also known as "Rush Limbaugh listeners") would be bad politics. At this rate Corbett could be the first governor around these parts to not get re-elected in a half century. "
