So, yes, I defended Bev "Governor Dumplin'" Perdue.
Because at another appearance, she saw some sheep and told the co-founder of SAS, "If we only had that ram, John, we could mate and have fun." How can you not enjoy that?
Look, folks: she is not quick and witty. You don't have to be smart to be an elected official.
But she was clearly joking.
Maybe I'm just defensive because I often say things like that, and people can never tell if I am joking. They can tell it's not funny, of course. But they can't tell if it was supposed to be funny.
UPDATE: From the Blonde, who is not entirely convinced Bev was joking, comes this "separated at birth" photo...
