Happy Thanksgiving, Blog Guy!

Thanks, and the same to you and to all my readers.

So what are you thankful for This Thanksgiving?

Me? I’m feeling very blessed to be surrounded by my dear family and great friends.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, of course you have to say that, but specifically, what are you thankful for right now, this minute?

Oh. Well, I’m thankful that I live in a country where nobody can force me to watch Charlie Sheen or listen to accordion music or eat Brussels sprouts.

That’s good. And what else?

I’m thankful for bountiful gaffes, such as “Oops,” and the “Happy Birthday” to Elvis and “I got all this stuff twirling around in my head.”

Voters are kept in the dark?

Johnson, get in my office! You call yourself a news photographer?

What is it this time, Boss?

It’s your pictures from that Republican debate! They’re too dark. I can’t even tell who these people are!

Oh. That one on top is Rick Perry, I think, or maybe Michele Bachmann. It’s not my fault, Boss. This was the debate they held entirely in the dark.

Let’s see, governor, there’s Moe, Curly and…

It’s supposed to be the fourth thing that slips your mind. You know, you go to the store and remember the tuna fish and floor wax and avocados, but not the toilet paper.

But ANYBODY can remember three things.

Anybody but Texas Governor Rick Perry, that is. He declared at last night’s Republican debate that he planned to eliminate three government agencies but then could only remember two of them, Commerce and Education.

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.
