Strange Bedfellows

Maru at WTF is it now? has a post [scroll up to see it] about Clay Shaw [R-FL-22] running radio ads touting his experience working with the Big Dog.

Apparently Mark Foley’s neighbor in Florida [adjoining districts] and Washington [they live in the same neighborhood] would rather be associated with William Jefferson Clinton than George Walker Bush in the minds of local voters.

[Politics makes strange bedfellows – what did you think I was implying? You people have dirty minds.]

You people have dirty minds.

I should hope so! And yes, if I were a GOPer (I know, it’s hard to imagine, but if I were), I’d be running from Dub and toward Big Dog as fast as I could.

A quick search tells me I’ve written two items of doggerel on the subject of your title, one back in 1997 with the title “Politics Makes Strange Bedfellows,” about the apparent practice of several presidents of granting a night in the Lincoln Bedroom to big contributors or other famous people, and the other in 2003, titled “Strange Embedfellows,” about “embedded” reporters in the initial campaign in Iraq. The latter dog is actually new enough to be online.

Ah, yes, doggerelly pursuing the enemies of freedom and lackeys of the imperialist running dogs.
