Excuse me, I hate to complain and everything, but…

Yes, what is it, Governor Gingrich?

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…

Right, Governor, I need you to reach over and stir that big vat of succotash on the stove for a minute. Mix ‘er up real good, will you?

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…

Obama’s golden opportunity?

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?

Uh, could he save a small child from a burning runaway freight train, Boss?

Hmmmm. Not bad, Lamar, but he’s done that twice already. I think he needs something different this time.

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.

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.
