I know this sounds crazy, but ever since yesterday on the road, I've been seeing this shape.

I was going to write a long post detailing why Mike Erickson would be a horrible choice for Oregon's 5th district but I just finally asked my self "what's the point?" Erickson's a conservative ass. Not that his opponent Kevin Mannix is much better.

So instead I'll simply make the quick observation that Erickson has the head of a Russet potato with the eyes of a brain-damaged ferret.



Some of you may disagree with me. You may think he has the head of a Yellow Finn potato with the eyes of a rabid stoat. Hey, it's America. Your right to your own opinion is sacrosanct.

I will, however, have to draw the line on those of you who think he has the head of an Oca potato with the eyes of a ferral ermine. That sort of talk is just crazy and way too rude for me to entertain.

Why do you insult the brain-damaged ferrets? It makes me sad.

Randal Graves said...

At least it's not a Russert potato.
And why do you hate Mannix? It was a passable show.

Distributorcap said...

was he the model for Mr Potato Head?

OD-

Barney was only partially brain damaged from the fall out of the Christmas tree.

randal-

I hate Mannix because he's no Kojak.

distributorcap-

I believe so. Good catch!

Why do you keep insulting potatoes and Mustelidae? Why not make fun of him for having the last name of a bad 70' TV detective?

I was talking to my dad the other day. He lives in Massachusetts and was saying how he does not feel represented at all.

We're spoiled in Vermont: we've got a guy that Dick Cheney told to go f*** himself ; we've got the only socialist in congress (recently on the Colbert Report) and our freshman Democrat is doing pretty good.

We also had Jim Jeffords. Heard of him? The Republican who switched to Independent because of what his party was doing? He was such a good man, I voted for him when his name had the (R) next to it.

Hope I wasn't rubbing anything in...

I think that the funniest thing about Erickson is that his advertising keeps talking about tightening up the borders to keep illegal immigrants out.

Unless he means other Americans, Oregon doesn't have any borders. What is he going to do, send troops down to Arizona (we all he only means the brown ones)?

I miss Barney the Ferret. And his scent.

I can't feel too sorry for you in Oregon's 5th Congerssional district. After all, my representative is Lars Larson's favorite "Democrat", Brian Baird.

arkonbey-

You Vermonters have it great! We like to think of ourselves as independent out this way but we have nobody of the type of Jeffords these days.

I love that guy that got in Cheney's face. Is he still alive? I assumed an "accident" would befall him.

don-

Ha!

They're coming in via the Pacific. Boat people from Baja are landing at Cannon Beach.

aaron-

In my humble opinion ferrets are the coolest pets ever but they're also the stinkiest.

I HATE Baird. Hope he leaves congress soon.

Overdroid said...

Barney was never brain damaged, he knew exactly what he was doing climbing that tree. Until he fell out.

Dean Wormer said...

OD-

Hahahaha!

What about running into the wall?

Face it: he was not the sharpest ferret on the planet.

But he was cool.

Dr. Zaius said...

I have no idea who Mike Erickson is, but I am pretty sure that brain-damaged ferrets do not like being compared to him.

Dean Wormer said...

Really?

Are you sure about that? Do you know any brain-damaged ferrets?

Because I've dated a few and I can tell you without reservation that they wouldn't have a problem being compared to Mr. Erickson.

Kevin Mannix just outed him for getting his girlfriend an abortion

Dean Wormer said...

I saw that. I love when republicans eat their own. :)
