The next governor

I was recently talking with my imaginary friends. They were pointing out “Sure VE, lettuce is pretty funny but it just doesn’t have the meat of a good political comedy post.” Well, I certainly don’t do much on politics but I think we need some new political options.

I think it’s time we go back to the well of governors again. But VE, what is the well of Governors?” Good question; it is that same source we keep going back to when we need another governor to run things.

A famous institution like Cambridge or Harvard? No, no silly; its the cast of Predator:

Yes, that’s right. We’ve already dipped from the well twice now. I think it’s time once again. Personally, I’m rooting for the alien as the next governor. In some states I think that’s what is needed!

It's their special hands-on political training that have helped them succeed in the past. Here we see Jessie Ventura practicing his influencing skills against unwanted special interest groups.

Here is Carl in a mock strategy exercise discussing firearm policies.

Arnold always did have a special gift for winning friends and influencing those opposed to his goals...
Seen here discussing the budget and how to best effectively reduce the deficit...
Another policital hands-on exercise as they learn how to recognize and deal with back stabbing politicians...
Yes, when America is in need; we must again turn to the Predator cast to help us mow down the political opposition and beuracracy.

Ooooh I like this post, but damn you for picking my first choice - the alien!

I'll go with my second choice for governor, Apollo Creed. The Russians will certainly kill us under his leadership, but at least he'll be sportin' those hot red, white, and blue boxing shorts as we all die a fiery death!

VE said...

bottleblonde - I think I've been damned before but another one on top of it won't hurt. Good second choice there too; sporty fashion shorts are a MAJOR consideration in effective governing

Jeff said...

Oh, good idea. Cause that worked out SOOOO well for us here in MN.

VE said...

Jeff - He wasn't seen with that big gun just before the bridge collapse was he?

Uncivil said...

Hey, you forgot to mention that in 2003 Sonny Landham (Billy the American Indian tracker) ran in the Republican Party primary election for the post of Governor of Kentucky but lost it?

VE said...

uncivil - Shhhh. We don't want to hear about a failure from the cast. I think the Alien will do much better.

Dorky Dad said...

Yeah, you know, I had no idea when I saw Predator in the drive-in soooo many years ago that I'd been watching two -- TWO -- future governors.

Kelley said...

Oh how I wish you were here. I would love to see your take on our election. Two guys that look the same, acting like children (you are copying me! Stop it! Muuuuuum, he's looking at me. I am not kidding.) up against an electronic worm that one guy banned...

OMG. You could do some serious funny to that. Or maybe it doesn't need it. It is a freaking sideshow. Both of them fighting over who gets to be Bush's bitch.

ADW said...

Screw being governor. I bet that alien could track down Osama bin Hiding and give him a bit of the what for....

iamnot said...

No thanks.
I don't think we can handle a governor as liberal as Ahnie our htere in AZ.
RINO

Kurt said...

But are Americans ready for an alien governor?

Tammie Jean said...

"The well of governors" - that's awesome! And that's a great publicity shot of the alien...

Theresa said...

But why leave it at governor? That alien should be aiming for President (after a small constitutional change, of course).

Kanrei said...

America needs more Governors with heat vision. This is a post for your hall of fame.

Nessa said...

Hollywood produces the best politicians. Clever of you to notice.

GC said...

I didn't see that movie. I'm gonna pu t it on Netflix. Nothing beats an educated voter.

VE said...

dorky dad - Yeah, I wasn't exactly staring at the movie screen saying "Gosh, I bet all these guys become governors"

kelley - I wish I was there too! Australia sounds like my kind of place; I think my humor fits right in.

adw - Good point!

iamnot - Actually, I've seen the state of your forests...yikes!

tj - Yeah, the Alien wasn't happy about the shot; he was worried that was his bad side...

theresa - Why not? Wouldn't he be a great foreign policy maker?

kan - Heat vision is cool; I want that. So you think it makes the VE hall of fame huh?

nessa - It helps when you spend all your formative years spewing out BS for a living

gc - Welcome. I think they should file that movie under the educational category now. They could show it in classrooms studying the political process
