Joni Ernst is running for US Senate in Iowa and she might have the scariest campaign ad I’ve ever seen. The first thing she says in the commercial is “I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm. So in Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.” She ends it by saying, “Let’s make them squeal!” So is that her way of saying she wants to do to them what she did to the pigs when she was kid? Actually that is not a bad idea!!! If that is her intention, then I guess she has my vote.
As we all know Toronto Mayor Rob Ford suffers from a bad case of foot in mouth disease; and it looks like he found to always have a foot ready to put in his mouth before he says something, well, Rob Fordy.
Why he was walking around with a fake foot, we don’t know why. But it is just another great photo op for the man I wish was my mayor. I mean what other politician walks around (no pun intended) with a fake foot in his hand before meeting the press. And that is why we love him.
The deadline to sign up for the Affordable Care Act is coming up on March 31st and President Barack Obama really wants you to sign up for it. So much so, he sat down Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis on Funny or Die. If that doesn’t say desperate, I don’t know what does.
BTW I will not get into the politics of it all, but this actually had some very funny moments in it.
Jimmy Kimmel mentions Rob Ford on his ABC late night show at least once a night. Well, the infamous Mayor of Toronto has flown to LA to attend the Oscars and to be on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday. So how far is Kimmel willing to go for his favorite politician? He braved the rain, dressed up as a limo driver and picked Ford up from LAX. How many other late night hosts would do that for their guests? None! And if I were going to be a guest on JKL in the future and I have to fly in to do it, I would insist that Kimmel does the same for me. I mean, they should all get such special treatment. Right?
BTW I hope they show all of this on JKL tomorrow at 11:35p. But then again they say what happens in the back of a limo, stays in the back of a limo. At least that is what my prom date told me…
The Canadian Hockey team was on fire yesterday at the Olympics and to honor that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford ran groin first into a fire hydrant! Thankfully for all of us, National Post‘s Darren Calabrese was their to capture the moment. Sadly though it was only with flash photography and not with a motion camera. So we will all have to use our imaginations to picture what it was like in motion. It’s just as good.
BTW is it just me or is Rob Ford just like a cartoon character? The things he does and how he looks reminds me of the animated shows I grew up with as a kid! He’s just so gosh darn cute.
For some reason Chief Budget Officer Councillor Frank Di Giorgio tickled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and what we got are these amazing photos from Reuters via The Daily Caller. I don’t care why he did it, as long as he did.
BTW I don’t know about you, but I want a Tickle Me Ford doll because it would be pure happiness. Seriously don’t these photos just bring a huge smile to your face.
Bill and Hillary Clinton along with Meryl Streep went to see Holland Taylor star as Ann Richards on Broadway and after the show they all posed together with the inspiring Gabby Giffords for a picture.
Even though I was looking at some political and acting bigs all taking a photo together, the only thing I could notice is how the former President was posing with Oscar winner. I can see that Streep and Hillary are dressed alike and both are blondes, but you would think by now he would know the former Secretary of State anywhere. Right?
Jerry Springer announced that he is running for President of the United States and all I have to say is Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!
Seriously I wish he would run because imagine how much fun it would be. The cabinet members would wear a lot less clothes. Leaders would literally fight it out and the secret service would break it up. Actually he is a really good negotiator, so he probably would bring peace to the world.
Sadly though he wasn’t born in the US, so this a dream that will never come true. Maybe Maury would consider a run for the White House, at least then we would know who everyone’s father is!

Last week during the first Presidential Debate Mitt Romney said that he would stop funding PBS if he was elected even though he is a fan of Big Bird and the late night shows ran with that. SNL, The Tonight Show, Conan and so on all came up with spoof videos, so when I saw Barak Obama’s latest ad I thought it was a joke. I mean it seems more like something that those shows would do rather than what the President’s camp would do. Could be because I watched all of those fake videos before the real one. Doesn’t it almost feel like a joke to you.
And you better watch it while you can because Sesame Street wants to educate them on their stance on politics. Sesame Workshop posted this statement on their site, “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.” It will be interesting to see if they do because I mean in their defense it was a smart thing to do after Big Bird’s boom after the debate. More people talked about our favorite yellow winged friend instead of the candidates for the next few days.
