Bastard of the Day

Okay, Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner, I gave you 24 hours. Now the honeymoon is over. You are already a bastard:
“It’s been clear that there has been some inappropriate decisions, either it’s with appointments or re-classifying employees, what we’re going to do is across the board cancel all appointments, we are going to cancel all hires, cancel all, rescind all, the actions that the governor has taken since Nov. 1,” Rauner said during his first news conference since taking the oath of office Monday.
I hate to break it to you, Bruce, but you did not become governor when you won the election in November. You became governor yesterday. Former Governor Pat Quinn had every right to govern as he did during the intervening two months, and I'm sure you will govern similarly when your term ends (which can't come soon enough).
