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



"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. "
