wonkette: you know, watching the bush q&a today was the first time *ever* that i understood the “regular guy” appeal.
wonkette: he just didn’t want to be at work today.
wonkette: though i still don’t get the onion thing.
operative: what the fuck did he say?
wonkette: he tried to make a reagan-esque personal anecdote that would illustrate his immigration policy.
wonkette: but all he succeeded in doing was talking about the time he met an onion farmer.
wonkette: and he was so totally and clearly making it up.
operative: someone should have told him that rutabagas are much funnier
wonkette: We have a situation in our own neighborhood where there are way — disparities are huge, and there are jobs in America that people won’t do. That’s just a fact. I met an onion grower today at the airport when I arrived, and he said, you got to help me find people that will grow onions — pluck them, or whatever you do with them, you know.
operative: maybe Bush can put an ad in Craigslist for him
wonkette: “can you pull onions? — m4m”
operative: no — it’s NOT ok to contact this poster with calls for impeachment
wonkette: oooh, the next best line of the q&a: at his crankiest, he said “Anybody *work* here in this town?”
wonkette: this is in cleveland, by the way.
operative: good Lord
operative: um….did everyone cough and shuffle their feet?
operative: i think someone yelled “you’re not funny!”
operative: maybe he was just trying to bomb cause Ken Blackwell was on next
wonkette: he did leave the podium with “God Bless America and THE BROWNS SUCK”
