My man Gray - Lovable Loser

Ah, Gray, how I miss you. But it looks like you have a nice little fallback gig making fun of yourself. Laugh and they're yours, dear Governor - why couldn't you have followed that advice 2 years ago? Or 20 years ago, for that matter.

In the grand tradition of Bob Dole, it seems our ousted chief is funny after all. I knew that already, though no one believed me. All political consultants out there seem to come out of the woodwork and say "yeah yeah, I TOLD him to just be himself and be funny, but he didn't listen and look what happened."

Bull.

Some consultants out there MUST be tamping down on pols inner yucksters. Let them out, let them eat pie-in-the-face! Let them be funny. If I'd seen Dole on the Daily Show in 1996, maybe I'd have voted for him. Okay, no, I wouldn't have. For one thing, it would've been voter fraud, but anyway . . . . .

Laugh and the world votes with you, cry and you lose at the polls.
