Carrying a little stick and speaking loudly in Milwaukee


SurveyUSA has released its latest approval ratings poll for the country's 50 governors.

Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle comes in at #35 with 43% approving, 48% disapproving. He's got some work to do leading up to the November '06 elections, but Doyle must be glad he's not further down the list with the likes of Gov. Schwarzenegger (36% approval, 61% disapproval).

Republican Gov. Bob Taft of Ohio came in dead last with 17% approving and 76% disapproving. Taft has suffered major political fallout after the Ohio coin scandal where millions of dollars are missing from the state's rare coin fund. State and federal investigations are underway to see whether the money was funneled into the election campaigns of fellow Republicans.

I bet half the people in the state still think Tommy Thompson is still in charge.

Heh. That's probably true. "Honey, didn't the governor used to have hair?"
