One of these men is the new Secretary of the Interior — try to guess which!
They still make guys named “Dirk”? Governor of what? This new interior secretary confuses and frightens us.
Then, of course, there’s this:
The spot I describe aired on various network daytime shows in early January. It opens with a business-suited yes man addressing “Governor Kempthorne.” The scene opens up to reveal a replica of the Idaho governor’s office, with the real governor seated at the desk. The aide continues, “Good news. There’s only one person more popular than you–Spuddy Buddy.”
A poorly drawn cartoon potato suddenly pops up on screen. He dances and sings the praises of baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, fries, and assorted other ways you can devour his tuber brethern. The half-minute closes with the governor telling the potato toon, “I hope you’re not running for office anytime soon.”
Someone — anyone — please find us video of this. It’s gotta be out there somewhere.
