A Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name

Oh dear. Beloved Moon Goddess Callista Gingrich may be popular here, but outside of the glittering Sparkle Corral? I'm afraid the answer is that the more people know her, the less they like what they see. Public Policy Polling (PDF here) finally got around to asking American voters about the things that really matter: Mitt Romney's dog, if they feel Obama would be a good president for dogs, proper transport for dogs, and... candidates' wives! Dogs and women, women and dogs... whatever.

But Callista! Oh, Cally-Lou! 38% of the respondents are "not sure" if they have a favorable impression of their next first lady. 44% have gazed upon the Platinum Space Helmet and found it wanting. Only 18% (Pony Pals™ all, I'm assuming) are Callistafans.

Tsk. So much for "unleashing" (don't blame me for pushing the metaphor; it's the Gingrich campaign's words) Callista. Back in the kennel, girl!

Ha ha ha... women and dogs. What a world!

Have the Republicans come out against spaying and neutering? If not, dogs will probably have better access to birth control than women will. And by the way, since Newt and Callista don't have any kids, have THEY been using contraceptives? (Ugh.) If so, don't tell Santorum!

Nooooooo!! Cally Lou cannot lose favor!

That poll was awesome. My favorite question was 'Seamus: More/Less likely to vote for Romney?'

Prolly not TOTALLY on topic, but since you've been post so heavily on the fake cartoons, here's a link to a post on Lines and Colors with links to youtubes of Chuck Jones showing how to draw Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Pepe le Pew, Wile E. Coyote and the Roadrunner.

Perhaps your anonymous (or fauxnymous) artists can get tips?

Not totally on topic?

But anyway, yeah, that's Chuck Jones' awful late style. I really don't care for that stuff much. He sure was good, though!

With the GOP being the party most likely favored by WalMart employees and shoppers, I can see why they don't dig Callista so much.
She's just too fancy to fit in with that cornpone GOP crowd. I can't see her at the Golden Corral eating as much as she can, nor can I see her going bowling afterwards.

Euww with the dog metaphor for Callista, thanks for pointing it out that it was their choice. Yikes.

She's got the Tiffany choke collar, they've clipped her nails, and put her in a down-stay. Heel, girl.

And is she also fixed? We want to know! Because Pope Benedict and Rick Santorum say you can't use birth control!!!!

Sorry, multiple exclamation marks. Got carried away. It's our idiom.

Callistanancy is awesome!
