Mood: accident prone
Topic: "States' Rahts" (3)
Frodo believes that a crime was committed several years ago. Although he has no proof, the circumstantial evidence is that the character portrayed as "Gomer Pyle, USMC" (who played the character of the same name in the "Andy Griffith Show") was separated at birth from his twin-brother, Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR). In fact, Frodo believes that the bizarre behavior and public statements of this pseudo-Presidential contender reflect the assimilation of the image portrayed by Gomer #1.
Governor Huckabee, attempting Frodo believes to sound authentic to his potential constituentcy, had admitted to consuming squirrel meat prepared in a popcorn popper (Could anyone possibly make this up?). Gomer #2 stated that this occurred while he was in college, and reflected attempts to supplement his meager caloric intake at that time. Since the college would not allow students to "cook" in their rooms, he would use a popcorn popper to prepare the tree rodents for consumption. Frodo remembers the "Valley Girl"admonition, "Gag me with a spoon."
Now, Gomer #2 has entered the slippery slope of the South Carolina State Flag, and told his onlooking audiences that the presence of the St. Andrews Cross on the flag is not a matter of concern by anyone outside the State itself. It deserves special note that there weren't a whole lot of dark faces standing on the podium alongside Chuck Norris at this point. The insensitivity of a modern-day Huey Long or, from Arkansas history, Orval Faubus, offers no service to Twenty-first century America.
Frodo recalls that Gomer #1 had a pretty decent singing voice. He was reminded of that watching Gomer #2 play "Wild Thing" on his electric guitar. What concerns Frodo is that was a comedic actor who occasionally made sense. It was a Presidential candidate that drew the horse laugh.
