What Do Tennessee Republicans and Quentin Tarantino Have In Common?

I don’t actually know the answer to that question, but I’m starting to suspect it’s “a foot fetish.” First there was Ramsey’s boot, which he was going to put in the ass of Washington, and now Mike Turner’s Republican opponent has made a campaign video seemingly designed to appeal to the small number of coprophiliac crush-video fanatics in District 51. (Dear lord, let’s hope it’s a small number.)

But, hey, if you like to watch plain-spoken farmers stomp bison poop, do I have the video for you! Not even kidding!

In all seriousness, this seems like a strange strategy. Does Charles Williamson really want to make the campaign about who has the better job?

Mike Turner heroically rescues people from flood water at his job. Charles Williamson farms bison and makes campaign videos that appeal to niche porn audiences.

I’m not sure that’s a winning strategy. I’m honestly torn, though. In principle, I love the idea of a political commercial that features, at its apex, bison-poop stomping. But seeing it in real life, it kind of makes me feel like someone from the TNGOP needs to get out there and tell Williamson that he doesn’t want voters to remember him as the guy who splatters poop all over.

  1. I keep trying to think of a parody of Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer titled Charlie The Bison-Poo Stomper, but I just haven’t been able to make it work yet.

    As always, you are awesome.

  2. > niche porn audiences

    We prefer the term “avant-garde erotica connoisseurs”, TYVM.

    BTW, here is a hilarious Julia Sweeney TEDTalk about having “the talk” with her young daughter, and accidentally almost/sort-of/but-for-a-lie introducing her to Internet porn:

  4. Oh. My. God. I just saw this and WOWZA!

    I had read about it but I hadn’t seen the video. Did he really just slam his boot into Bison doo-doo?

  5. Newscoma, sure looked like it to me.

    Mike Turner, you rescue people from flood waters AND speak French? You’re making me feel like such a slacker; I can’t do either of those things.

    Indifferent children, you make me laugh out loud. Avant-garde erotica connoisseurs.

  6. Yeah, but he can’t type. He used a quotation mark instead of an apostrophe. He’s wasting the taxpayers’ ink, or bandwidth, or something, with that extra little line.

  8. A real person … business owner, farmer and rancher … someone who has met a payroll, puts people to work … AND knows how to have a laugh? I’d like to have a few more of these to vote for in November because THAT’S who I want representing me.

  9. Oh, God, that’s hilarious! At least he does know the subject matter! Up here in No Humorous Politician Land the only funny commercial we had was for district 6 Rep. and to show what was the memorable part, the Dem whose name I can’t remember and the female mayor of Pottstown at the time sang along to an acoustic guitar song about Taxing Tom Quigley, who the song said will tax you when you’re dead.
