Blog Guy, have you seen that amazing new book about former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, the one taken from hours of taped interviews with her just months after her husband was assassinated?

Look, up in the sky, Joe!

“Jeez, Joe, what are you doing with those aviator shades? You think you’re Tom Cruise, or what? Take those things off!”

She’s the Darjeeling of the Tea Party?

Blog Guy, I see Sarah Palin, the possible future former potential presidential candidate, spoke at a Tea Party gathering over the weekend. I’m not sure I get the whole Tea Party thing. Wasn’t the 1773 Boston Tea Party a protest against being taxed by people we didn’t elect, and don’t Americans now get to elect their lawmakers?

Do you recognize this candidate?

Blog Guy, I come to you for all my news about the 2012 presidential race.

Please explain this sentence from a Reuters story about a debate: “But Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, former Senator Rick Santorum, Representative Thaddeus McCotter and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson all participated from sites across the country.”

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?

Abe! How’s life at your Gettysburg address?

Blog Guy, is it just me, or am I seeing lots of photos of Abraham Lincoln in the news these days?

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?

Michele Bachmann, the wurst winner ever?

“I am Ioway born and bred, and on Ioway corn I’m fed…” **

Cheese it! It’s Wonder Woman!

August 13, 2011

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.

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?
