I guess liberals are gleeful over the generally nutty display at last night's GOP shindig, but I will say this for the Republicans--as a matter of pure aesthetics, they have produced once again a genuine bestiary of real American types, whereas every time I see a gathering of Democrats, they seem to have beamed straight from some nearby planet…

…Ron Paul is as affable and futilely beloved as any barroom political crank; even the crackpot pizzabaron is comfortably of the same species as you and me. Barack Obama on the other hand seems like a holodeck beta test.

Alas, I have quoted all but a sentence and a couple of phrases. The missing bit is terribly funny, though (as you might expect).

Seriously. The usual suspects are already all over this like stink on Iowa State Fair cowshit.

But it doesn't look all that good.

Back in WI, we had a milk maid spokeswoman, picked in a beauty pageant type thing, I think, and she was known as Alice in Dairyland. There was a huge cow where people could get unlimited (whole) milk to drink. I don't think there was chocolate milk...

But I do not remember corn dogs. Perhaps my parents wouldn't have allowed them.... I do remember looking at the pie winners. My mother made a great crust and would comment on the quality of the crusts.
