Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
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?
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?
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….
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.
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?
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?
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.
Quick quiz: the politician in this photo is…
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.
It’s hard to say for sure, but all the telltale signs are there.
Well, she was here in DC on Sunday, and she did the traditional Admiring of the Tattoos, as every prospective candidate does.
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.
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.
