Poll: Worst state governor? [View all]

The competition is fierce out there. Ponder this for a few minutes: Rick "Rev. Goodhair" Perry made it onto this list by the skin of his teeth, barely edging out the extremely corrupt Nikki Haley of SC and the religiously insane Sam Brownback of KS.

All are R's, of course.
