What's In A Name? Plenty


Wayne Gay

Well, we're on our way to that season when serious folks announce that they're going to run for office. We all know about the presidential hopefuls, Cruz, Paul, Rubio, Clinton, Biden.

But what about the thousands of other offices, local and statewide? There's a lot of people who are busy tossing their hats into the ring that we've hardly heard of, but they're going to make a run for these elected offices. Sometimes though, it's hard to keep a straight face.

So here's a few of the people who have recently or currently are running. These are all genuine, I assure you. Some will instill confidence, others, well. You be the judge or perhaps you prefer:

Lawless for circuit judge

There's also Jay Walker --Afton Illinois tax assessor; Young Boozer -- state treasurer in Alabama; Ryan Fattman -- Massachusetts state representative; Timothy Shotwell -- sheriff in Washington state. (That one just keeps bringing up Eric Clapton singing, "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy")

Sometimes it pays to run as a team, join forces, like here:

Ball and Cox

Now for a few more, who will ever forget the inimitable former House of Representatives member, Dick Swett from New Hampshire; Robin Rape, Texas Precinct 1 constable (a lawman's name if I ever heard one); Idaho U.S. Senator Mike "Crap" Crapo; or the late, great--

Harry Balls

Finally, I leave you with a man who pronounces his name as it's spelled. It's not "Baynor" -- but:

Boner Mayor

So you now know what's in a name. Don't forget to vote in your next election. It's worth the time no matter what your favorite candidate's name is.

Illinois gun "enthusiasts" sent out an anti-Bloomberg, anti-Robin Kelly postcard...and managed to misspell both Debbie Halvorson's name and-- wait for it-- "February".

Here's an idea:

Imagine what would happen if gun zealots could spell! Thay kood beekum a reel thret:

The above images were sent to me in an email, and they come to us via @dkoselections. I edited them to highlight the errors and also added the arrows.

but wait there's moreThis photo comes by way of the Downtown Asheville Facebook page. I edited it down a little for size only, but the image is intact:

Yes, according to Very Dedicated to the Constitution Guy, we are to "suport" the right to "own bare arms"... according to the "Secont Ament." I'm relieved to hear that, since I own two bare arms, and even a bare the-rest-of-me.

Actually, the Second Amendment mentions a little something about a "well-regulated militia," presumably in uniform. A bare-armed militia would get plenty of laughs, but not much protection from the elements. And don't get me started on the chafing.

As a special added bonus I'm adding a few other choice examples of the genius behind right wing messaging:

PhotOh! "If only my uterus was a corporation"


My Twitter buddy jodmentum made a couple of signs for Awake the State and is sharing. This is one day I wouldn't mind being in Florida.

For your consideration:



PhotOh! Rally to Restore Sanity signs: "Everyone is Hitler", "Everyone Poops"


Best signs ever!

One I missed grabbing: "Think outside the Fox".  Heaven.
