Quote of the Day


"The Republicans can't stop playing dress up. Between the cowboy drag and the flight suits, the GOP is nearing Village People status."

-- Bob Cesca, commenting on what he rightly calls a must-see Republican campaign commercial from Alabama (of course) that takes self-satire to entirely unprecedented levels

I actually kind of like some of his commercial, but he lost me when he started waving his gun around, that got a little scary...

So is the Agriculture Commissioner in Alabama like the Sheriff of Nottingham or some such? Why is it even an elected position?

B8ovin said...

Yeah Capt. I liked it too. Because I KNOW that no Alabama cowboy, once elected, wouldn't get in bed with agri-business types waving money around like free hollow points at a gun show. Well maybe, someone's gotta pay for those NEW duds. Did you get the impression that horse didn't give a RIP about that commercial. The poor thing just wanted to get back to the cotton round-up.

Is it just me or does that commercial make you a little bit dizzy?

Al said...

Finger IN the trigger guard. He gets basic gun safety wrong. Yeah, I expect the horse is a touch more qualified.

And Slouch gets Comment of the Week, right there. Thanks for making me do a spit-take all over my computer.

He had me at "I'm Dale Peterson...."

As you know, I'm with folk like Dale on protecting the borders, but I got to hire a lot of good, hard-working Mexicans that I picked up at Home Depot. I take a lot of heat for this, but once you learn a few of those Mexican words, they warm up to you good and fast. Just the other day, Carlos cried how much he loves cleaning sewers with me. Just for that, he earned himself a cherry pie.

That is funny, Chez!

And, as a silly side note; I'm friends with the Village People!
