Hawkeye Review: The Big Lug's very bad day...

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review

I might be channeling the late Governor Ann Richards of Texas who
quipped a very memorable moment at the 1988 DNC convention: "Poor
George, he can't help it... he was born with a silver foot in his
mouth!" Today, the flagship of the MSM (New York Times), ran a feature
story on the slow flood recovery in Cedar Rapids ... Poor Chet, he
can't help it, he governs with a sand bag in his mouth! This is indeed
a very bad day for Chet. Someone on team Culver is popping Excedrin
right now and don't be shocked if another lamp wasn't swept off the
floor deep within the bowels of the Governor's office today.
Metaphorically speaking, it appears that Governor Culver has
sandbagged himself into a corner with regards to his miserable
performance on flood recovery issues. Politics 101: This will be in
textbooks very soon. "What not to say to the New York Times."
