FORD TO [New York] CITY: DROP DEAD
Is it too late to mention Swine Flu?
y’know, Don, I’m pretty sure I have one of those WIN buttons in a box somewhere. Right next to my collection of McGovern/Eagleton campaign swag.
as for the other glaring omisions, what can I say other than, PARDON ME?
I was at a row of urinals in a men’s room sometime around 1991 with George McGovern and Al Franken when Al turns to George and just goes into a stand-up routine of Eagleton jokes and then apologizes about it saying that he wrote all this great Eagleton material, but never gets to use it anymore. Oh how I wish that Mark Russell was also in that men’s room to deliver some McGovern election humor as the three of us took turns administering a beat-down.
I believe we wrote a play in the second grade about pollution that ends with all the puppets contracting swine flu aka having pig noses attached to the front of their puppet faces, which for a seven year old is about as political as it gets.
It may also be worth mentioning that due to their thick-framed glasses and similar names, I thought that Ford’s vice president Nelson Rockefeller was Charles Nelson Reilly. This seems corny, but is actually true.
Don…quality, not quantity.
