Your Governor, Terri Lynn Land

Right now, Smilin' Terri Lynn is the acting governor of Michigan. No kidding.

With Gov. Jennifer GRANHOLM and Lt. Gov. John CHERRY both in Washington, D.C., for President Barack OBAMA's inauguration, that leaves Secretary of State Terri Lynn LAND in charge. Michigan's Constitution stipulates that when the Governor and Lieutenant Governor are out of the state, the Secretary of State fills in as acting Governor.

Granholm and Cherry hosted a fundraiser in D.C. on Monday and are expected at the Michigan Ball this evening.

Land stepped into the role on Sunday evening and will relinquish her duties at 9 a.m. Wednesday, spokeswoman Kelly CHESNEY said.

Hey, at least it's not Cox.
