    Ventura was a disaster for  Minnesota
    Schwarzengger is a disaster for California.

    Running a state government is not for inexperienced dilletants who really have no interest in running a state government.  Or even in leading one

    This isn't a good joke.

      The governor of Texas is something like the 22nd most powerful statewide elected official in the state.  The Lite Gov runs the government.  All the Texas governor is, is a figurehead though Ann Richards was a very popular one and encourage lots of good things done by others.  The reason for this strange structure is the Texas Stat Constitution, which was drafted in this way to keep carpetbagging Northerners from drifting down Austin-way, running for governor and taking over the show.  Didn't work very well, did it?

      That's why it was such a larf when Bushie boy talked up being Governor of the Lone Star State in his campaign.  He had little enough to do, and if anyone paid attention, he still screwed it up.
