    Shane- Loved #20. But don't kid yourself…Gov. Culver has done a lot of good for the Girl Scouts. Based on looking at him, he may be their biggest customer.

    Hey our Governor has issues. I didn't like Vilsack, but I miss him compared to Culver.

    But I'm not going to uproot myself based on politics.

    I'd say anyone who sat upright like you did Shane when Palin spoke at the convention, has issues.

    Me and I guess 48-49% percent of those who voted for the McCain-Palin ticket.

    Now why exactly are you turning this into a personal thing?
