Barack, my cardboard buddy

  1. What? No cardboard cutout of McCain? Perhaps that’s because his positions are complex and not just platitudes? 😉

    More seriously, maybe his supporters are not as much into a cult of personality. Though next week may prove me wrong. But I am sure we won’t hear too many people weeping with emotion over him.

    Listening to the post-speech comments last night makes me wonder if having Obama as a viable candidate will mark the beginning of the end of our long self-doubts about our society. I hope so.

    I saw someone walking in a parade with that cardboard Obama.

    Hey, is this our Jeff Johnson (KYMN)? If it is, maybe they’ll do a cardboard of him, too.

    bottom of page. Says Jeff Johnson is running for Hennepin County Commissioner. If it isn’t our Jeff, it is a Jeff look-alike.

  3. No, our Jeff Johnson is much better looking. See him pictured on page 2 of the September Northfield Entertainment Guide, now available all over town.

    oh, thanks Susan. It’s too bad, we could have said we knew a Hennepin County Commish. If it were our Jeff, he’d surely win. You know, with that “Jeff Johnson” voice.
