24-Hour Dorman: Culver kudos

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

I know I've made fun of our Big Lug, aka Chet Culver, in the
governor's office a few too many times, but I think he's done a good
job in recent weeks showing Iowans that he's on the job when disaster
strikes. Sure, a cynic like myself has to admit there are clear
political benefits for an elected official to show up for photo-ops
amid the rubble or a chopper ride over swollen rivers, complete with
flight jacket. And, honestly, recovery operations go on whether he or
she shows up or not. But we expect our leaders to give a damn when
we're hurting, and Culver has shown skill in that role. He's
crisscrossed the state in recent weeks, surveying the damage, lending
comfort to victims and promising that state government is awake and
working.
