As a lifelong Ohio resident, I am disgusted and furious over your referral to residents of California as "whackadoodles." I may disagree with your politics, but you represent the state of Ohio and its residents nonetheless. Your "whackadoodle" reference, which I heard on Fox News and also saw on YouTube in a talk you gave at the Columbus Athletic Club, is inaccurate and juvenile. You disgraced your office, yourself and your constituents.
At the very least, an apology is in order. Until then, the only whackadoodle in the room, Governor, is you.
