Weekly Poll Wrap-up

The poll question last week was “if you were going to Boy’s Town in Nuevo Laredo, who would you take with you?”

Ace Dallas Morning News reporter, accomplished musician, and frequent wasp victim Karen Brooks ran away with it, with 48% of the vote. The reason is obvious: Karen is fun to hang out with.

Also garnering significant support was State Representative Elliott Naishtat - 21% of voters wanted to take him. Not only is he fun to hang with, but voters also sensed that while there, he would ensure that all the employees had affordable health care, retirement benefits, and collective bargaining, and that he would also completely demolish the free buffet table.

Other voters took a different tact. 13% wanted to take Eliot Spitzer with them to Boy’s Town. Clearly those voters believed former Governor Spitzer could negotiate a great deal, what with all that experience and all.

Meanwhile, 11% decided they wanted to take Ann Coulter. This is a coalition of voters, some of whom just wanted to drop her off in a different country and leave her there, and others of whom thought she’d make a great headliner for the live donkey show. Personally, I think she’d bore the donkey.

Bringing up the rear was Bill O’Reilly’s producer, which is only fair because the job description itself entails being good at bringing up a rear. Voters clearly considered him a sympathy vote, since it’s obvious that he doesn’t get much lovin’ on the job.

    For me, the prospect of a live donkey show featuring Ann Coulter evokes sympathy for the donkey more than anything else. Surely even donkeys have standards?

    Brooks is not only fun to hang out with, she’s fearless. One needs to be fearless to have any fun in Nuevo Laredo these days.

    Thanks babe.

    And thanks to aaaall my friennnz…

    As for Nuevo Laredo, amen to that. My feeling, though, is that with all the cops there, it’s safer than Carlos and Charlies.

    And way more fun.

    And way cheaper tequila shots.

    And the bars stay open all night.

    /What could go wrong?!

    Just found your blog from BOR. Glad to hear that Elliot Naishtat is still kicking it in the House. I lived across the street from him years ago.

    Great guy, bad yard but great guy.

    Glad to hear his values are still Austin’s values.
