Blog Guy, you look pretty upset. What’s wrong?

Are you kidding me? It’s the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. All the potential fun is evaporating before my eyes!

What do you mean?

I still can’t believe it. Sarah Palin now says she’s not running!

Two days ago, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie opted not to run. Donald Trump flirted with a bid, then dropped out.

The great ones are disappearing, and it’s not even 2012 yet! How can I replace the likes of Palin and her version of Paul Revere’s ride? I may as well just hang up my blogging license and become an ornithologist!

Calm down, Blog Guy. Step back from the edge. That corncob guy is still running.

Blog Guy, I know you’re a travel expert, and I need some advice. I am a vampire. I would like to go someplace where I don’t feel, you know, different.

Maybe I can help. I just saw a story saying hundreds of vampire enthusiasts are planning a vacation cruise on the the Zuiderdam, tailored to their interests. It’s called “Vamps at Sea.” Maybe you should try it.

Giving us the creeps?

Blog Guy, last week you wrote about an opinion poll naming Casey Anthony the “most hated person in America.”

You said of the people who had heard of her, 94 percent didn’t like her. But you also said that 57 percent found her creepy. Was that a different poll?

Hey, there’s thuggage in your luggage!

Blog Guy, it’s July 6. Isn’t that the date you usually announce the coveted Doofus of the Year Award?

Indeed, but it was complicated this year. A last-minute entry snatched the title from someone I thought had an absolute lock on it.
