Question of the day

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

* We had a bit of fun with my refusal to cut my hair or trim my beard yesterday. In response, my old buddy Jak Tichenor sent me a photo from the latest “Illinois Lawmakers” program I did with him. And since we’ve had caption contests on just about everybody else in politics, I thought it was probably only fair to do it to myself. I have a strong feeling that I’m gonna regret this, but whatever…

Caption?

    Sneed hears that GEICO is searching for a new spokesperson after a recent falling-out when the insurance giant’s popular cavemen were arrested and charged with DUI after crashing into the walls of a local ice rink with a zamboni. Among the top prospects is the Capitol Fax’s Rich Miller.

    The upshot: “Rich just has that special look,” said a GEICO source. “It blew everybody away. While our previous spokespeople required hours of makeup and costume work, Rich just needs a quick shower and some cheap conditioner.”

    The backshot: Miller, who publishes the venerable Capitol Fax, a must-read for state political insiders, is reportedly seriously considering the deal. “I never thought I would want to leave my post covering state politics,” quoth Miller. “But I am frankly sick of this mess and am ready to move up in the TV world. And who can turn down a $10 million signing bonus? That’s better than Zambrano got with the Flubs!”

    Tea Party Messiah Ahead in Polls

    The country operates largely on a two-party system and, because of this, fringe groups are forced to fold into either the Republican or Democratic Party. Republicans, who are hoping to win back seats in the House and Senate during the 2010 midterm elections this coming November, have widely embraced the Tea Party, an activist group that is fighting out-of-control government spending. But there’s one Tea Party-backed candidate who frightens them, and his name is Tim D’Annunzio(pictured above). D’Annunzio, ahead in the North Carolina polls, might have the support of the Tea Party, but he could very well hurt the already-tarnished image of the Republican Party should he win a seat at the table. “In Hoke County divorce records, his wife said in 1995 that D’Annunzio had claimed to be the Messiah, had traveled to New Jersey to raise his stepfather from the dead, believed God would drop a 1,000-mile high pyramid as the New Jerusalem on Greenland and found the Ark of the Covenant in Arizona,” the Associated Press reported. Not much of that, it seems, will gain widespread acceptance. In addition, D’Annunzio smokes marijuana daily, according to a doctor’s evaluation, and has been trated for heroin dependence in the past. Oh, and he doesn’t pay child support. “Mr. D’Annunzio has disqualified himself by his background, his record and his behavior,” Tom Fetzer, North Carolina’s Republican Party chairman, told the Associated Press.

    “Michael, can you help me?
    Assembly passed nothing, but I need sleep,
    Is there something you can tell me?”

    He walks on, doesn’t look back
    He pretends he can’t hear him
    Eating an apple as he crosses the street
    Seems embarrassed to be there

    Oh think twice, it’s another day for
    You and me with these parasites
    Oh think twice, their powers not for you,
    It is for their political fights

    He calls out to Cullerton on the street

    John’s got lobbyists at the soles of his feet
    Budget cuts have got them crying

    Oh think twice…

    Oh lord, is there nothing more anybody can do
    Oh lord, there must be something you can say

    You can tell from the beard on his face
    You can see that Rich has been there

    As they say, Rich…”Nice beard.” (Seriously, I’m a “beard guy” myself–no matter what one’s political persuasion, us “beard guys” gotta stick together)! Oh, and by the way, in the midst of such “seriousness” in our beloved Prairie State’s governmental/budgetary workings, etc., nice to see you lighten things up a little…and at your own cost!!! God bless/keep up the fine work…

  147. - Six Degrees of Separation - Tuesday, May 25, 10 @ 5:01 pm:

    Back in the early 70’s when I had a similar look, sans beard, I walked into a restaurant in El Paso, IL. They had a sign behind the counter.

    “I know a JACK
    That looks like a JILL
    And smells like a JOHN”

    Needless to say, I hightailed it outta there like Charlie Daniels in “Uneasy Rider”.

    Nice to know we’re a much more tolerant society now.
