    of Republicans imploding when faced with the actual task of governing.  Is it any wonder that Gov. Ernie Fletcher has the third-worst approval ratings of any governor in the nation?  Only Bob "I Was Convicted While in Office" Taft and Frank "What's Wrong With Nepotism" Murkowski fared worse, and they'll both be out of office by year's end.  Fletcher will no doubt follow them out the door in 2007.

    The NYT article was particularly brutal.  There was hardly a single passage that put Fletcher in a positive light, while many paragraphs openly mocked him and his troubles.  It's the kind of piece that the right will use to "prove" that there really is a massive liberal bias in the media.  Of course, this is one of those comparatively rare occasions when the reporter (Ian Urbina) and his editors at the Times didn't attempt to achieve an unnatural -- and totally unwarranted -- balance, because in this instance, none was called for.
