She thought so little,

They rewarded she,
By making her a bidder
In the race LG.

The Gilbert and Sullivan fans in the room will recognize the paraphrase from a patter song in H.M.S. Pinafore.

The “she” is Annette Meeks, and the “so little” she thought of is the office of lieutenant governor.

It is really hard to see why anybody would hire a lieutenant governor who thought the job should be abolished. But Meeks did. Maybe right after inauguration she would commit a public act of ritual suicide on the Capitol steps. Or maybe self-immolation, Buddhist-monk style, as a protest.

Update: The Strib Hot Dish has more, here.
