So Gwen Fulcher Young managed to strike gold by comparing Republican Congressional candidate Lee Anderson to TV’s Honey Boo Boo, a remark that, while amusing, is certainly well off the mark.
Honey Boo Boo talks a lot more than Anderson does.
Still, Fulcher Young has worked that comment with all the dedication of a Silas supporter defending the Road Patrol, taking Paul Broun’s remarkable ideas about religion and wrapping it all up into a Holy Trinity of Embarrassing Southern Stereotypes.
Funny how quickly the evolved forget the evolution.
Husband Bob, who has Republican connections he might not want to discard quite so hastily, simply winked and threw up his hands like husbands of uppity women everywhere, helpless to do anything but watch.
But isn’t it interesting how knotted up the whole thing is? Here’s Gwen, trashing the Republican who beat out Hill neighbor Rick Allen for the chance to run against Democrat John Barrow, when it was Allen that hapless husband Bob endorsed in the runoff. An endorsement, remember, that happened after Bob served as high holy moderator at the final candidate roundtable before the primary.
Usually, those positions are supposed to be impartial, but really — who’s insisting on impartiality these days?
However you look at it, one thing is quite clear — the local Republican Party is lacking an enforcer strong enough to keep people from making public spectacles out of their public spectacles.
Anderson might very well be the Honey Boo Boo of area politics, but he beat out Hill-man Allen, who’s now remarkably claiming to be the victim of the whole primary bloodbath, and that means there are people out there who support him, and who knows — down the road they might be worth something to some candidate.
Something for people of all political persuasions to worry about, though — if a well-placed Honey Boo Boo jab vaults the likes of Fulcher Young back into the spotlight, there’s no telling who might be bouncing back into the news.You Might Also Like:
