The Governators 

Gobo recently noted in the comments that he can name all 50 governors and all 100 senators. This didn't surprise me, as Gobo has always been a wealth of knowledge, both political and otherwise.

So I tried to name as many governors as I could in just a few minutes -- without any cues except the names of the states.

Didn't go that well. Here are the 21 I got -- complete with some gubernatorial Berman nicknames. If you want to take a crack at it yourself, read no further!

"Good Berman Nicknames" Division

WV: Joe "Governor's" Manchin
MN: Tim "Good 'n" Pawlenty
FL: Charlie "Jesus" Crist
LA: Bobby Jindal "Racing"
AZ: Janet Napolitano "Ice Cream"
TN: Phil "White" Bredesen
NJ: Jon Corzine "Shot"
TX: Rick Perry "Como"
MT: Brian Schweitzer "Orchestra"
MS: Haley Barbour "Shop"
MI: Jennifer "Golden" Granholm
MA: Deval Patrick "and Keith Olbermann"
VA: Tim "Raising Mc" Kaine
PA: Ed "Mr." Rendell
NY: David "No $15,000 whores for me!" Paterson

"I Got Nothin'" Division

CT: Jodi Rell
IL: Rod Blagojevich
KS: Kathleen Sebelius
NM: Bill Richardson
AK: Sarah Palin
CA: THE Governator

The Senators will follow at some point. I expect to do a little better there. Hopefully I can cross the 50% threshold.
