Saturday Aug 4 The dreamboat politician

Primo: I should go to the country Polka Dot meeting.

Me: OK. Except that's not our county and they're not voters in your district.

Primo: It's good for me to go.

Me: Then go.

Primo: Except they plan to sing "Happy Birthday" to [a major Polka Dot political figure].

Me: Gag.

Primo: I know.

Me: What do you mean, you know? He's your guy.

Primo: You know I'm not that happy with him.

Me: I know I'm not. Singing to him seems kind of cultish.

Primo: It is. But there are so many people who still gush about him. They say he's sooo inspiring and that he's changed their lives.

Me: Strange people.

Primo: All I see is someone who is continuing the policies of the previous administration and then lying to us about it.

Me: So don't vote for him.

Primo: I can't vote for his opponent.


  1. How far do you think you can get in any political arena without kissing ass and being fake? You'd probably never even leave the starting blocks. What are you going to do when Primo starts kissing babies? Do you think he will?

    1. Not very, SK. I know I didn't enjoy sucking it up around the really gung-ho Polka Dots. I have a ton of PD friends and I am married to one, but I do not want to discuss politics with them! However, arguing with them during Primo's campaign did not seem wise.
