Kansas Governor Sam Brownback finally came out on top. He was voted number one in something. Strike up the band and get the parade started down Main Street – this calls for a celebration!
Did he win for providing the best economic plan for any state in the nation?
Ding – sorry wrong answer.
He must have won for his aggressive job growth plan that has created thousands and thousands of new jobs for Kansans?
Ding – try again.
Oh…oh…I know! It must be for his plan to reduce childhood poverty in our state.
Ding – now that’s just crazy talk.
Governor Sam Brownback came in NUMBER ONE in a recently poll for the WORST approval rating of any Governor in all 50 states. Brownback has an approval rating of….drum roll please….. 26%.
“Governor Brownback is a dedicated politician. He’s always in it to win it. When he realized he had an opportunity to be the worst Governor, he just went for it. Think about it. It started with the crazy tax plan gamble that failed. Add to it the wild west gun laws, the war with the courts and top off that political no win sundae with the epic fight with teachers and school funding which is the cherry on top. All other Governors were going to be left in the dust.” said an anonymous Kansas staffer.
In fact, it wasn’t even close. He beat out all other governors hands down. The next closest shitty Governor was Bobby Jindal with 35% of the vote. Our governor beat him by 9% points so take that Louisiana!
The staffer continued,”just look at the surrounding states. Oklahoma’s Governor has a 50% approval rating. Who wants to be average? How boring is that? Then you have Missouri with a 52% approval rating. We all know how Nixon handled Ferguson and he still walks away with a 52% approval rating. Kansas didn’t have rioting in the streets and we still blew him out of the water in the worst category. Now that is saying something.”
Remember, Brownback isn’t done yet. The question, is like in limbo – how low will he go? It’s very possible at this rate that single digits are in his future.
