Give up? It's brand-new Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell!
In an Oct. 2008 interview, Alaska talk-show host Marc Porcaro told the Wall Street Journal, "If Sean were a food, he would be a nice bowl of warm oatmeal."
It's a reference to Parnell's easy-going, nice-guy, borderline-bland persona -- and it seems to be sticking.
Needless to say, after the tumultuous past year in the media spotlight, I'm sure there are a lot of Alaskans who will be just fine with a little oatmeal for a while.
