Overheard on the campaign trail . . .  

Overheard on the campaign trail: “It's okay, nobody actually saw the Candidate eat the rat…”

Except those twenty people who posted the video to YouTube. Heeee. (The Firesign Theater gang would like The Future.)

I believe that was a comic by Mary Kay Brown in National Lampoon a few years back, about a bunch of handlers and their barely human candidate.

something like that, yes. you'll notice I didn't specify *which* campaign trail . . . or *when* . . . But still it does seem rather appropriate

Thanks. I was waiting. I figgered you'd come through. If you hadn't posted it in the next week, I was gonna, but you deserved first shot.

Mary Kay Brown, indeed. I still have the NatLamp(s) in which the comic was published.

I believe you first quoted it in my presence in about '82 or so, and it was yet another reason that I fell truly, madly, deeply in love with you.

You almost got your chance. But after watching a few clips of the Evil Troll's "performance" on the debates the other night, what with his odd, jerky, chopping hand-arm motions and his bizarre facial expressions ranging from pop-eyed stupor through eye-rolling to grimaces … well, how could I resist?

oh, almost forgot…
Yes. Me too. (Both still having the actual magazine and the deep love. *mwahx*)

…handlers and their barely human candidate.
Almost forgot. Yes, that was certainly a part of what brought the quote to my mind. (Not that he doesn't deserve or shouldn't have the same rights and privileges as every one of the rest of us, from "barely" to "totally", y'unnerstand, but … geesh…)
