Tis the Season for Polling

I just spent fifteen minutes answering my first political telephone poll of the season. I explained that I didn’t have any bad things to say about Jay Nixon, the Missouri Attorney General, but I would probably vote for the other guy anyway.

When asked the best thing I could say about him, I said He’s not Eliot Spitzer. Second nicest thing would have been He’s not Peggy Lotsalager of Wisconsin.

What, with that ringing endorsementand the realization that B. Holden is no Rod Bladjavovich or Jim Doyle, I’ve got a new slogan for the state of Missouri: Our elected officials don’t suck as bad as yours.
