7. I'll second that emotion
Mattie Boy Governor's current approval rating is around 36%, but Daddy Roy is from one of the most fundie areas in the country here in good ole SW MO--NOTHING is going to change their wingnut minds. He could kill on tv and they would still vote for him. I have walked many miles and knocked on many doors for VERY GOOD Dem candidates --and I get comments like "Sorry, dear, I am a devout Republican"---that wouldn't change if Jesus were on the Dem ballot!
