They've Gone About As Fer As They Can Go

Who knew Code Pink and the Religious Right had so much in common?

This series of ads have been making the rounds on a lot of blogs this week, but it's worth glancing at all of them together.

I've spent a good number of years in Kansas City and would not equate it to "big city" extravagance, so the ad above debunking the city's former Mayor Kay Barnes' run for U.S. Representative is quite fascinating. Who knew there were such parties taking place in San Francisco? I was never invited. And is the trio we see dancing made up of the the types we'd expect to see at a Pacific Heights fundraiser? What is supposed to be so objectionable about them? Because they're not an all-white group? Because it's two girls and a guy? Or, most likely, that the blonde chick is strutting in her Fantastic Sam's 'do and 1986 Fashion Gal duds that folks in even St. Joseph would not be caught dead in?

I don't really know much about Kay Barnes, but she seems like a reasonable enough moderate and certainly more appealing than her opponent Sam Graves who looks like the fat, ugly spawn of John Ashcroft. Remember him? Though it's sad that in the above rebuttal, Kay felt she needed to pose in front of a fence in a hay field to prove she's a country gal not a city slicker.

All of which makes me wonder what both Kay and Mr. Graves would make of Shirley Golub. Actually, I think I saw her last summer at the crafters barn at the Lake of Ozark's Cornpone Festival.

The music! The canned laughter! The hay!

Rich - Look closely at the revelers behind Shirley's picture at the end. I think once the free drinks were gone at Nancy and Kay's party in Pacific Heights, they went to UN Plaza where Shirley held a rave and passed out free Meth.
