The strain on Cain is changing his campaign?

October 31, 2011

In case some of you missed it because of the freak snowstorm, I’m going to mention an unusual political story from Saturday. It involves Herman Cain, one of the front-runners for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

Stir that succotash, will ya, Newt?

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?

Come back, Sarah, it’s not too late!

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!

She’s the Darjeeling of the Tea Party?

September 5, 2011

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.”

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?

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?

How do you get corn to stay on this thing?

Quick quiz: the politician in this photo is…

a) Just noticing they have strange microphones in Iowa.

b) Wondering why these people attach corn to a stick before they eat it.

c) Wishing he’d brought some toilet paper with him to take to the outhouse.
