Gail Collins disses Paul and Conway in "My Old Kentucky Zombies"
Editor's Note: Oh. Dear. Gail Collins of the New York Times has an editorial about Kentucky's two senatorial candidates. To say it's unflattering would be damning with faint praise. And yes, I know I can't say the d word at the Fancy Farm Picnic! Though if the debate looks and sounds as Collins describes, everyone in the audience may be driven to obscenity before it is over.
Follow the link and read the whole opinion. According to Al Cross, Collins is from Ohio - so maybe she's just jealous of our politicians? Or not.
"Rand Paul, the most famous of the Tea Party-backed Republican Senate nominees, is a small, curly-haired man with cheeks like a chipmunk. He speaks in a tone of extreme reason that nevertheless suggests he is way smarter than anybody else in the room. In a teen horror movie, he would be the kid who invents the potion that turns the sophomore class into zombies.
Jack Conway, his Democratic opponent, would be the handsome football quarterback. The football quarterback who is not the hero of the film but rather the first person to have his brain eaten. The hero would be played by Zac Efron, who would never be caught dead in the Senate."
