Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

Eat it off the stick, Rick!

Blog Guy, when Michele Bachmann came out ahead in that Iowa straw poll thing you did a pithy analysis attributing the success to eating a corn dog in public. So where does that leave the newest candidate, Texas Governor Rick Perry, who didn’t compete in the Iowa event? Is he home free?

Hardly. He had to race to Iowa yesterday for some serious catch-up.

Heh, heh, heh. You mean Ketchup?

Stop punning with my punditry. The fact remains, no candidate has ever not won the nomination without not eating an Iowa State Fair corn dog.

Can you repeat that?

I’d be surprised if I could.

Does it really have to be from the Iowa State Fair, or will any state fair corn dog do?

Are you serious? You don’t remember the corn dog debacle when Senator John Kerry was the Democratic nominee in 2004?

Michele Bachmann, the wurst winner ever?

“I am Ioway born and bred, and on Ioway corn I’m fed…” **

Hey Blog Guy, so Michele Bachmann won that Iowa thing. What do you think swung it her way?

Cheese it! It’s Wonder Woman!

Blog Guy, you have a lot of inside info on politics and I’m hoping you can clear something up for me. I’ve heard that Sarah Palin may actually be Wonder Woman.

Whoa! You may be on to something there, Ace.

It all fits! Palin rides a motorcycle, just like the real Wonder Woman, and she always travels with her faithful calf, Shep, and her wise-cracking sidekick, Todd….

Politicians and their pork…

Blog Guy, can you settle a bet I have with my bartender’s pedicurist?

More bets between random unlikely professions, huh? What is it this time?

That Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. Has he ever seen a porkchop?

You know, I don’t think so.  In these photos from the Iowa State Fair he’s eating a grilled porkchop on a stick, and it looks for all the world like he’s about one bite away from chewing the napkin.

Folks, we may be in for a Trumpy landing

Blog Guy, we know you were pretty upset about Donald Trump not running for president, clearly a huge loss of humor potential for your blog. Are you getting over it?

I don’t have to. My staff researcher found a loophole on page 466 of the book “The Bloggers’ Code.”

Palin gets a palm reading?

Blog Guy, a few days ago you said it looked like Sarah Palin is really going to run. You’ve been closely watching her bus trip this week, so now what do you think?

Oh, she’s looking more and more like a candidate to me.

Here she is in New Hampshire yesterday with her family, chatting with lobsters.

She also appears to be trying out signs with a possible campaign slogan, though personally I think her team should be able to come up with something much more effective than that one.

How do you get corn to stay on this thing?

Quick quiz: the politician in this photo is…

a) Just noticing they have strange microphones in Iowa.

b) Wondering why these people attach corn to a stick before they eat it.

c) Wishing he’d brought some toilet paper with him to take to the outhouse.

d) Thinking of beating himself to death to get away from all these farmers.

This was an easy one. I’ll accept any of the above answers because I’m so happy to have another goofy person entering the 2012 presidential race.

Real nice tats, you betcha!

Hey Blog Guy, I know you’re really into presidential politics. So, is Sarah Palin going to run, or not?

It’s hard to say for sure, but all the telltale signs are there.

Like what?

Well, she was here in DC on Sunday, and she did the traditional Admiring of the Tattoos, as every prospective candidate does.

I’ve decided not to be President Trump…

Blog Guy, what’s wrong? You look like you’ve been sobbing.

Yeah, I have. I’m pretty broken up about Donald Trump not running for president.

But you weren’t going to vote for him, anyway.

Yes, but I figured my blog was practically written in advance through 2012. It would have been so easy. I’ll never find anybody like that again.
