The article left out the king of pork (as anointed by the Lexington Herald Leader), Rep Hal Rogers (R) of Kentucky. He represents the district in the southeastern part of the state. This is the real life "Dukes of Hazard" area. In fact there is a town there named Hazard. He has been in congress since 1981 and about the only thing in his district that doesn't bear his name is the Appalachian Mountains. And I suspect he is working on carving out the portion in Kentucky so that portion can be named for him somehow.

And we should also do this on the local level as well. Do we really need a reminder that John Kasich is the governor when passing a state building, or that Michael B. Coleman is the mayor when passing a city building? Or to spend the money making and replacing the signs? Or to make and replace the signs when the new people take over?
It was a big story when the Illinois Tollway covered up the signs with Blogo's name on them with a general road sign, and they no longer have the governor's name on the state welcome signs. Maybe Ohio should (gasp!) take a hint from Illinois...
Or maybe taxpayer-paid advertising is just one of the perks of incumbency...
