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.
