Coach Carr for Governor

As some of you may have seen, George Perles, the one-time Michigan State football coach and athletic director and current member of the MSU Board of Trustees, is considering a run for governor in 2010. We here at the Hoover Street Rag applaud this, largely because it got us thinking.

There is but one man who can lead the State of Michigan out of its current morass and into a cycle of perpetually solid, if unspectacular, years. That man is none other than former Michigan football coach Lloyd Carr. Coach Carr has the managerial and executive experience, the background in civics (he was a high school history teacher after all) and is generally well liked still around the state. Below the jump, some of the highlights we could expect to see from a Carr administration.

  • No more "you'll be blown away", all State of the State addresses would report that the state of Michigan is "tremendous".
  • Vocabulary of state officials would be increased thanks to Governor Carr's unabridged dictionary outside the door of the governor's office policy.
  • Governor Carr schedules one of his first meetings with the press with Maureen Dowd.
  • Press conferences become testy when WXYZ-TV hires Todd Harris to become its Lansing bureau chief.
  • LaMarr Woodley offered command of Michigan National Guard.
  • Mike Hart named director of the Family Independence Agency.
  • Charles Woodson considered so valuable to the Michigan government, he is compelled to work for the executive, legislative, and judicial branches without regard for the constitutional issues this raises.

    This is all we had, but please feel free to add your own in the comments below.
