In our ongoing survey of political season’s weird and wonderful campaign ads (keep sending them in to: firstname.lastname@example.org!), there’s really been nothing as weirdly absorbing as the efforts of Rep. Don Sherwood, R-Pa., who President Bush appeared with today on the campaign trail, to get re-elected. How does a 65-year-old, who looks for all the world like an embattled high school principal hell-bent on retirement, explain to his constituents about his 30-year-old mistress in D.C., much less her accusation that he tried to choke her? With one of the most excruciating campaign ads we have ever witnessed:
This, naturally, inspired at least a few parodies:
All of which followed this fabulously pandering attack ad by Sherwood’s opponent, Democrat Chris Carney:
Oh, how we look forward to upcoming ads from this campaign — maybe (hopefully!) starring Carol Sherwood, Don’s wife, who has released a letter saying, in part, “It is a fact that good people can and do make mistakes. Don is a good person.”
Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
