WEEKEND HUM (01-19-08)
I DON'T WANNA GET POLLINA'D !
We don't know if that's the right way to turn Pollina into a verb, but it's close enough for us.
We also don't care if he's raised 100,000 or 10 million, he's still gonna lose if he runs for Gov.
Anthony Pollina is trying to make the world a better place. He cares. And he still has decent hair.
But he has not won anything that we can remember - maybe a scratch ticket? NO - he wouldn't gamble! But c'mon...
Poor Racine (Doug Racine). Poor Galby (Peter Galbraith). Poor JC (John Campbell). And poor Matt Dunne-a-lot. Who wants to stick their bloody neck out when there are three salesmen on the lot. So to speak.
Trouble is - Doug would probably make a decent Governor. Galby would probably infuse a different type of energy we have not seen in Montpelier. JC would be solid and Dunne will probably be something someday if he can win something! Huh?
With his world cred and his police dog passion, Galby would be tough. But not with Tony Polloni hangin' around. If Douglas, Galbraith and Pollina duked it out, it would end something like this:
Douglas - 45%
Galbraith - 31%
Pollina - 17%
If Douglas and Galbraith went mano-a-mano, it would be close, but only if Progs and Dems were to be kissin' cousins, or at least, huggy buddies!
If Gentleman Jim and Tony went head-to-head - um, no contest.
Advice to Demmies --- offer Tony a lucrative consulting position --- maybe special assistant to Gaye, or Petey, or even Daniel Schorr! Get creative.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
We were hangin' at the Essex Junction Five Corners and a dude in the car next to us looked a lot like Dennis Kusinich. We rolled down our window and inquired.
Turned out he was just somebody who looked like DenDem. Said he actually worked at Price Chopper and is voting for McCain.
