No-names in the news

A couple of endorsements went by yesterday which aren’t worth noting. But we here at Letters From Texas Worldwide Headquarters often note the un-notable.

First, Farouk Shami, who earlier this year garnered a massive Democratic primary vote encompassing the overwhelming majority of his own campaign staff, endorsed Republican Rick Perry yesterday. The endorsement wasn’t worth noting, even by us, until I saw this photo from the event.

When I saw the photo, I have the overwhelming feeling that I had seen that photo before. Then it hit me – I had indeed seen that exact photo before – it’s from the movie “Airplane”:

“Joey, do you like movies about gladiators?”

In other news regarding Democratic endorsements involving people who aren’t Democrats, a friend of mine received a postcard in the mail yesterday announcing Kinky Friedman’s endorsement for Democratic Supreme Court nominee Jim “NotSo” Sharp, who I’ve pointedly written about before:
If this is NotSo’s big winning message. that’s fine I guess, but I don’t see how he can do any better than his award-winning campaign website, which more accurately reflects every single reason a voter might be attracted to him.

    So, does this mean Perry now has “Farouk-mentum” or “Shami-mentum”?

    And does the endorsement come with any free haircare prizes?

    Inquiring hairbrushes want to know…

    “Farouk, have you ever seen a grown man naked?”
