Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks
Wednesday, July 08, 2009 I know I don't get into politics on this blog, but I just can't stop thinking about the soon-to-be-ex-governor. Have you ever thought about what it must be like to be a resident of an oft-dismissed northern state, suddenly thrust into the national limelight as a result of abruptly having a famous governor? But then that governor turns out to be a controversy magnet who professes hatred for the very media that made that governor a star. As adulation gives way to jokes from late-night talk-show hosts, suddenly a cocky, self-assured outsider becomes a thin-skinned self-pity case, pointing the finger at everyone else for all the problems the statehouse now has to deal with. Ball taken, home gone to. Nothing left but a few increasingly desperate media appearances, which the media enables because it's even more desperate, and the last time you hear about your ex-governor, years later, it's in a story about not running for president. But enough about Jesse Ventura. posted by M. Giant 7:34 PM 6 comments
two thumbs up.
ha ha ha. Nice M. Night twist at the end there. Are you two related?
Uh. I thought you were referring to Illinois...
I'm not too proud to sound like an idiot - I'm confused.
I thought he meant Ms Palin, which made it pretty funny. The hair king of Chicago would also work.
