Set my pollsters free!
There has been much discussion on what Hugh Hewitt has called Oompa-LoompaGate. His callers had many suggestion for the possible motives for the overnight color change.
An e-mailer suggests it is just Kerry turning colors for the fall. Another writes that Kerry just wants to declare "Ich bin ein Pumpkiner." A third says its a play for the Great Pumpkin vote. And finally, one suggests it is just nature’s pumpkin cycle:
Blooms and grows in July.
Turns Orange in September.
Carved up in October.
Thrown out in November.
At first I thought it might be some strange synergistic effect between Kerry and Michael Jackson’s skin. Kind of a racial Picture of Dorian Gray. But I decided to put on my pajamas and do some investigative reporting and so I put together this story board based on what actually happened.
Update: And here is a Rim Shot from the blog Why Fret? I do appreciate a blog with bad guitar puns in the title.
