They want me. They want me bad.

Okay, I just got a robocall from the Huckabee campaign. Tomorrow, six p.m., same hotel that McCain was at (big conference center near the airport, that’s why). It starts an hour after Drinking Time, though. I’m not sure Huck’s worth sixty or more of my active boozing minutes.

Say, who’s up on parliamentary procedures? Is there any chance Huck will force it to a brokered convention and somebody totally else can grab the nomination?
Like Zombie Reagan or Maggie Thatcher or Chuck Manson or
Marvin the Martian or…somebody?

“I’m not sure Huck’s worth sixty or more of my active boozing minutes.”

I’m quite sure he is not. He’ll not get even one of mine, the walleyed bastidge.

Huckabee’s not worth a sip of iced tea at lunch, let alone any serious booze minutes. Screw that.

Unless you could smuggle a flask in. Now that would be interesting. You could toast his every comment and then meander your way home afterwards.

I smuggled a flask into a concert once. Body-warmed scotch sucks.

McGoo: What if it’s a Long Island iced tea?

I’m afraid it would be difficult for Huck to resist calling down the wrath of God on a drunken participant. Or a non-supportive one. Or anyone who looks at him askance. Stop talking about his cross!

Or Her Grace can sit there muttering Psalm 109 against him. In the original Hebrew would be best. Then he can say nothing, and indeed do nothing but cower in fear of God’s impending wrath. After all, it’s scripture.

Er, I seem to be stuck in the moderation queue.

And please, execute whoever determined “queue” should be that word’s spelling.

Yeah – three vowels should be enough for anyone. Four is downright wasteful. Why don’t they just spell it “Q” and be done with it.

(I actually saw it spelled that way in Singapore many years ago. A taxi stand sign said, “Please ‘Q’ up here”)

Huck is probably trying to keep you away from boozing. Bastard!

Well, shoot! Hillary! was here yesterday. Now, that I would have gone to see.

Poor little Rhode Island has never gotten so much attention at election time. It shows to go you how they’re fighting it out for each and every point this time.

Thanks for fishing me out!

Not that I’m aware. But they clearly limit advance warning calls to party members. Which makes sense; why invite hecklers?

Will Chuck Norris be in attendance? It’d be worth going for that. ‘Vote for Huckabee or I’ll roundhouse kick your testicles off!’
Huckabee may be a Christian Fundy, but his life story is tragic and inspiring. It’d be worth going if he decides to tell it, but if he’s just going to play the geetar and tell lame jokes, then the booze will probably have to take precedent.

Heyyyyy…I didn’t think of that! I bet Norris only shows up for the media stops, though.

Hey, when you Google “Huckabee” the #1 paid-for link in the right sidebar is McCain’s web site. Somebody was on the ball.

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
