Dikfore for Prez

Look who's running for State Representative:

[thanks for the heads up Alicia]

I had no idea he was such a politico. Is running for a position in the government and getting photographed in such a T-shirt the hometown equivalent of sitting in a boat called Monkey Business with Donna Rice on your lap? Or is that reference too outdated and obscure for anyone to follow anymore?

While we're talking politics, take a look at this ranking of countries by their relative bank accounts, and then notice the rank of the U.S., dead last, with nearly ten times more debt than the nearest competitor. And ten times is a lot when you're talking tens of billions. Fiscal conservatives my ass.

All I have to say is "Good luck, Douchebag." With kudos to the anonymous commenter who said "Is this the equivalent to wearing a t-shirt with "douchebag" on it? Man, I can't believe anyone would wear a shirt like this," back when you first posted his pic in June.

I really am not too concerened, however. This guy is taking on DFL stalwart and community icon Frank Hornstein...VP of the Linden Hills co-op, good buds with Rybak, wife is a well known Rabbi, and is in his second term in office for 60B which represents Linden Hills, and the rest of SW Minneapolis near Harriet and Calhoun. Good luck, Dikfore.

are you kidding???

well, when i think about it... he's got some damn hairy arms, a creepy, gummy smile, the makings of a unibrow, AND he's wearing a "dikfore" t-shirt.

this man is perfect for american politics.

It's clear what Tshirt you need to make:

"Elect Dikfore"

or even "Erect Dikfore"

I initially read your post title as "Dikfore Prez" without the extra "for" in there and I was struck by the wit! Then I realized I read it wrong. THEN I realized that my way is wittier. Damn I'm clever! Also, should I know this guy?

i read a website where they suggest smiling to 3/4 of your widest smile.

4/4 of your widest smile shows too much gum and becomes creepy.

case in point: candidate dikfore.

I ran into him at The Drink and he told me he thought he had a good chance of winning. I started laughing I thought at first he was kidding. Woops!

He is a Republican - enough said.

Are you saying you don't like my shirt or you don't find humor in it? Have you seen my opponents picture? I'm actually thinking about dropping a postcard with my pic against his, with a line under them asking "Who are you going to vote for?"

Also, I didn't know "Douchebag" is capitalized. Or is that an actual name brand?

Anyways, yes, it's an uphill battle. My opponent, however, has been a very poor representative for this area. Sick of gas prices? My opponent has introduced bills six(6!) times to
raise the gas tax.
Like your home? My opponent voted against
eminent domain reform.
Don't like sex offenders? My opponent voted against tougher penalties on sex offenders.

Thanks everyone for your input! I'm looking for volunteers to help on my campaign to lower property taxes, make crime prevention a priority and to put into work sensible education solutions! Please visit my site to find more info on volunteering, contributing, my positions, etc.

Hmmm. That is a tough question, but I can safely say that I do indeed find humor in that shirt.

He is still a Republican. . .

I read somewhere that George W. is fond of fart jokes, so Dickfore could make it all the way!

Hi Dan,
I've been a lurker forever. Although much has interested me, nothing has moved me to post until this. Now I know I'm way late in the game, and I don't live in the state, but whatever. At first, I thought you might be supporting some freaking republican, homegrown and bootstraps be damned.

But then reading the comments made me feel better. Clearly your friends would not let you go so far matter your seemingly neutral intentions.

And then...the kicker! Any man who thinks he is ready to run for office and yet has the audacity to use the word "Anyways" in a sentence (and not as a joke)! Oh my. And just after questioning another's use of capitalization?

Not sure who lives in this district, but just some random musings...

If you think I'd ever support a republican, you don't know dan.
