The HotDish Hash is a very Conservative newspaper and whenever election year would come around, the politicians would come in an schmooze with the newspaper staff.
I always found this a perfect opportunity to speak with these people who were supposedly representing my vote.
Probably one of the main politicians i always dealt with was Bob Gunter. Until i was asked by the Newspaper Publisher not to speak with any visiting politicians ever again.
Me: you’re Bob Gunter?
Bob: that’s me! Nice to meet you.
Me: (shakes hand) aren’t you the guy that spent $3.6 million on a study that said college graduates make more money than most employees that did not go to college?
Bob: yep, that was me!
Me: well…DUH! you spent over $3 million on a study that is obvious to even someone that isn’t college educated?
Bob: well, it was a study that needed to be done.
Me: says who?
Bob: Well, you obviously didn’t vote for me.
Me: Better do a study on that. Pay me $3.6 million to tell you that people that disagree with you more than likely didn’t vote for you.
