19. The guy was a weirdo
To his credit, he was pretty straightforward and transparent, very unusual in a pol. But gawd, it seemed like he spent the bulk of his governorship merchandising and defending his intellectual property -- namely himself. He had a ceaseless fear that someone somewhere was making coin off his image, name, speeches, fashion sense, whatever.

And that big dustup with tweedy, nerdy Garrison Keillor. It was funny as hell, but I couldn't believe the galoot was dumb enough to get roped into that.
