Mike Ross' run for governor

BETH ANNE RANKIN: Palin look.
  • BETH ANNE RANKIN: Palin look.
John Brummett says on U.S. Rep. Mike Ross' annnouncement that he won't seek re-election mostly what's already been said: Ross is running for governor in 2014; he needs to spend the next couple of years acting like a Democrat (a new role) to win a Democratic primary; Republican chances to take the seat are good. If he's such a good Democrat, he'd have held onto his seat two more years, but he put himself ahead of party. Surprise.

But there's this: Beth Anne Rankin, "the Sarah Palin wannabe," has a "decent shot"? Remember when her makeover made her a red-haired knockoff of Caribou Barbie?
