EXCLUSIVE: Post-Victory Interview with Michele Bachmann

November 3, 2010 at 8:33 pm (PoliTic-Tacs) (, , , , , , , , , )

"They Like Me! They Really, Really Like Me!"

It was a hard fight.

It was a campaign marked by harsh words, shockingly negative ads, and a flurry of accusations and cross-accusations.  This one race- for the House seat for a tiny swath of central Minnesota- saw more campaign dollars spent than any other race in the country.

DFL candidate, Tarryl Clark, conceded defeat last Tuesday night and congratulated Rep. Bachmann on her victory.

Meanwhile, Bachmann was celebrating her victory at the Veranda Ballroom at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel which is where I eventually* caught up with her. Read the rest of this entry »

10 Ways Politics is Like NASCAR

November 2, 2010 at 11:47 pm (PoliTic-Tacs) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

In response to Jesse Ventura on Larry King saying that politics should run like NASCAR.

  1. They both have unsavory origins, involving illegal substances and common criminals.
  2. They both involve a lot of nothing, nothing, nothing- then suddenly, a big, fiery crash.
  3. They both eat up enormous amounts of TV time on Sundays.  (Seriously.  You make the DVR miss The Simpsons one more time and I will come to your house and steal every last one of your drier sheets, Danica Patrick.  How you like that driving suit now, huh?  With all that static cling…)
  4. Tom Cruise has made a movie about both.  One co-stars a hot, sexy, amazingly beautiful actress and the other has Nicole Kidman in it, so… yeah.
  5. Both waste a lot of energy.  The average car uses 66 gallons of gas per race.  43 cars per race.  That’s almost 3,000 gallons each race, and that doesn’t include time trials and test laps and warm-up laps.  Also, burning one gallon of gas releases 20 lbs. of carbon dioxide for a total of 60,000 lbs. or 30 tons per race.  In an average session of Congress, enough anthrothermal energy to power all of Sandusky, Ohio for 14 weeks is wasted.  In addition, more than 40 trillion tons of C02 are emitted.
  6. Only the ‘real’ Americans get it.
  7. In both, members of the same ‘team’ may sacrifice themselves for the advancement of the ‘team’.  In Talladega Nights, it was John C. Reilly.  In politics, it’s Larry Craig.

    This guy firmly believes the mantra: "Rubbin' is Racin'!"

  8. Both are best watched while completely and belligerently drunk.
  9. For both, it is recommended to invest in a comfortable set of earplugs.
  10. Both involve a LOT of yelling rednecks in Star Spangled clothing.

An Idiot’s Analysis of 3rd Party Candidates for Governor of Minnesota

October 27, 2010 at 12:33 am (PoliTic-Tacs) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It is the solemn duty of any civic-minded idiot with too much time on their hands to research the candidates whose names will appear on the ballot they will be handed on Election Day.

By the time November 2nd rolls around, anyone with any intention to vote has heard enough about the major candidates to form an opinion of them.  But what about all of those other boxes to check?  To whom do those belong? Read the rest of this entry »
