Gov. Mark Dayton won’t be given a Good Neighbor Award from WCCO Radio for his live on-air word choice when he responded to GOP criticism of his tax plan. 

The Democratic governor spiced up the debate over his tax plan on Friday during an interview with Chad Hartman, who pointed out that Republicans are saying his revisions would raise taxes on most Minnesotans.

“It’s just bull — , or as Teddy Roosevelt used to say, bull feathers,” the governor said.

A WCCO staffer with quick reflexes was able to bleep out that last half of the vulgarity before it reached the listeners’ ears.
