Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Excuse me, I hate to complain and everything, but…
Well, I’m not a governor. I used to be the Speaker of the House of Representatives. I’m running for the Republican nomination, and I was wondering, how come I have to eat in the kitchen, standing up?
Oh, this is Iowa, Governor. Everybody eats in the kitchen.
Hang on just a minute, I can see that Rick Perry guy getting his picture taken with folks, and there’s Michele Bachmann signing autographs and what-not, and here I am standing next to some lady in an apron…
Um, okay, sure, but you see…
Was there some other thing you’re not happy with, Governor Gingrich?
Yes, it’s this name tag. My name isn’t actually spelled KNUTE…
Okay staff, we all know we’ve got a problem. The president isn’t as popular as he used to be. His numbers are down, and the Republicans are slinging mud. Anybody got an idea?
Hmmmm. Not bad, Lamar, but he’s done that twice already. I think he needs something different this time.
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.
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.
