Well, she’s got MY vote!

politics performer 490

Okay guys, this is a REALLY tough presidential campaign for us. We need some very successful rallies, so let’s brainstorm this.

politics performer vertical 180Well Boss, how about some entertainment? Some kind of performer to bring in the crowds?

Hmmmm. Good idea, Lamar. Are you thinking maybe an accordion player, or a circus freak, or a ventriloquist?

Uh, no Boss, I was thinking about one of those whatchamacallits, you know, those ladies that stand on their head so people can see their panties…

Oh, I don’t know about that, Lamar. That’s kind of edgy. What if we do that and nobody shows up?

Come on, Boss, let’s give it a try. Put up posters saying folks should come to the rally to see our candidate and a girl’s underpants, and let’s just see what happens.

Camo granny-panties…. how blah.

I agree Spinster…
though these tricks speak for the candidate himself… :P

This post has got me tumbled upside down, head over heels to try and grasp how this could entice voters. I guess I must have od-ed on my meds ’cause I just don’t get it!

It appears that the full disclosure laws in the Philippines dictate that politicians must reveal all hidden assets.

I cant do anything but agree… eeeeeeeeesh!

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

Ah, so that is what that is. I thought it was just a cheap publicity stunt. Not that any politician any where would ever consider doing something like that.

Posted by IamNotSomebody | Report as abusive

Politicians will do ANYTHING for votes these days.

And where do you get camo panties anyway?

Posted by kgolden1 | Report as abusive

Oh come on Mr Pilot, surely we all own some camouflage underwear ?

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

I sort of agree with Unca…however, I think there would be lots more female voters if the headstander was a male, and involved a slightly different type of helicoptering. Never underestimate the power of female voters!

Posted by sarabelle | Report as abusive

Sarabelle, that type of helicoptering gives the expression “hard landing” a whole new meaning.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

ooooo…. Sarabelle!! :P

I am not opposed to camo underwear but for the sake of attracting male voters she coulda went with the camo thong, camo g-string, or the camo-camo underwear which is camouflaged camouflage .

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Huh. Typical politician – always talking out of their a**e.

Posted by zeitgeist | Report as abusive

Mr. Pilot! I like you! You have quite the imagination…!!
Atleast in Camo pants..

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

I wore camo shorts once. Never again! Nobody noticed me. I was camouflaged.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

I see London,
I see France,
Wait, I can’t see your underpants!

Thanks Shra, I like you too. And trust me when I say my imagination far exceeds the limits of this (allegedly) family oriented blog. Although I think sarabelle and Dr. D. are about to get this blog a rating change.

CrowGirl…granny-panties though? Really?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Ifly, you’re right. We’re certainly giving it a whirl, as they say.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Oh no, not granny pants. :)

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

So then CrowGirl, is that to say you do own a pair of camo underwear? ;)

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

it’s ironic how the purpose of camouflage is to avoid detection and observation, yet that’s the one part of her body everyone is staring at

Posted by SkimpyDog | Report as abusive

Starring at what, SkimpyDog? I don’t see any camouflage.

Posted by DoctorDoll | Report as abusive

Ifly, it depends what you mean by a pair…

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

More than one…um…pair?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

I don’t think ‘pair’ would be an accurate description. ‘Something disturbing posted to you by a brief fling ex after 18 months of no contact that makes you want to scrub yourself in boiling bleach’ would be an accurate description. Although still not what it said on the label.

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Ummm…saywhunow?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Ifly – it’s a strange outfit that makes me suspect that the guy who sent it me may be a serial killer. But it is silk – at least I have classy stalkers !

Unca – um, thanks. I think !

Posted by CrowGirl | Report as abusive

Crowgirl!!! Really!!! We need to talk some more girl! :P

Posted by Shra | Report as abusive

A silk stalker huh? Kinda has a ring to it… perhaps it was a tv show or something.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Actually I think it was Silk Stalkings. With Rob Estes and Mitzi Kapture. Co-starring CrowGirl.

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Crowgirl…. you are getting your share of notice… dont say I didnt say so! :P
