Look! It's Obama eating a dog!
<>

And there in the background is Michelle, wondering "Dayum, I wonder how he learned to do that?"

Look, all candidates, Dem and 'Pug, at all levels go out on the campaign trail and eat all kinds of weird food. Weird looking, weird tasting, weird sounding food. It's been that way for decades, if not centuries. It is as ubiquitous as politicians kissing babies.

The don't necessarily like it, but feel obligated to do it. And yes, every single politician out there has embarrassing pics of them eating certain kinds of food.

Grow up, get over it, and move on. Rather than cutting a pol down on what they're eating, try cutting them down on their policies and record.

But please, the Iowa State Fair ended Saturday, and this juvenile giggling over a corn dog is getting old. Grow up, move on.

50. Years ago on the Banjo- L discussion site ,
no I didn't just make that up http://zeppmusic.com/banjo / , every now and again some plank would start a thread on the merits of using cat's skins as banjo heads instead of calf skin. They always made me scream. I know that's not what you but it reminded me of something I'd forgotten.

7. As normal as anybody eating a hot dog,
And Bachman's photo is as normal as anybody eating a corndog.

I just want people to grow up and move on to more important things rather than acting like middle schoolers.

23. It isn't abnormal for the mind to go there,
But most grown-ups have a chuckle and then move on. Here we are, three days out, still posting the same old juvenile crap over and over again. That's not normal.

But as free people we are allowed to post juvenile crap all we want. It's not as if the same poster is doing it over and over again.

44. No, most people who eat hot dogs or corn dogs don't look like they're blowing them
and gagging in the process.

Maybe the issue here is that she was forcing herself to eat something she didn't really want to eat, but the fact remains that she is running as the standard bearer for the whackjob-jesus anti-sex prude faction of the Republican Party. If you honestly expect people to see pictures like this:






and NOT make jokes;

well, I'm sorry you're forced to live on the planet with us low-brows.

you can't put it in the strike zone like that, and expect people not to swing.

I appreciate the monk-like purity of some of the self-appointed stern-faced elders around here- no, really, I do- but me? I'm nowhere NEAR that saintly. :rofl:

11. Bob Dylan
Now, the man on the stand he wants my vote,
He's a-runnin' for office on the ballot note.
He's out there preachin' in front of the steeple,
Tellin' me he loves all kinds-a people.
(He's eatin' bagels
He's eatin' pizza
He's eatin' chitlins
He's eatin' bullshit!)

13. There's one of Hillary, too.
Pretty much every candidate has eaten a hot dog on camera. It's something you have to do at the fair or on the 4th. So, there are plenty of those photos.

Edited on Tue Aug-16-11 02:23 PM by RZM
It seems that it's not unusual to hold your arm out straight in front of you while speaking in front of a crowd either:









Perry and Bachmann do more than enough to make themselves look bad just by holding the positions they do. Time spent making fun of how they eat or hold their arms is time not spent on showing regular people how their policies would hurt the country.

of a longer movement, sending a false impression as in the photos you posted. I'm not communicating my meaning well, but I agree with the point you're making. :)

How can this be?

I'm amused that he's wearing a fair admission bracelet.

As if someone from the fair would kick him out for not having paid admission.

33. Yeah....

Given the reliability of fair equipment in the midwest this year, I tend to doubt that the Secret Service would be happy with them getting onto a piece of machinery assembled and operated by stoned teenagers making less than minimum wage.

39. Wait. Is this another poutrage thread about the pics of Michelle Bachmann blowing a corndog






Well, one difference is, she actually looks like she's trying to blow the thing, and she's fighting her gag reflex to do it.

Also, Michelle Bachmann probably supports criminalizing assorted forms of oral sex between consenting adults, so that makes it extra funny, as does her whackjob anti-sex right wing fundamentalism (not to be confused with the whackjob anti-sex fundamentalism displayed in a few rarefied corners of 'the left')

Plus, Okay, fine, then Obama's blowing one too.

Thanks, though, for keeping this importantly ridiculous story right up at the front.

51. Bachman's highly-suggestive foot-long corndog photo op showed bad judgment
& could hardly be compared to a hotdog. I showed Bachman's picture to my husband & he immediately got it. Showing Obama's hotdog picture to him would have him asking me what the big deal is.
