French Henry

She's already lost.

Mitch McConnell.  Swimsuit competition.

I just threw up in my mouth a little.
 
2013-05-24 08:10:41 AM  
I would think that Mitch would welcome anything that doesn't involve running on the strength of his record.
 
2013-05-24 08:13:32 AM  
I'm assuming there will be no talent portion to this competition.
 
2013-05-24 08:17:02 AM  
Turtles don't wear swimsuits.

Therefore, your argument is invalid.
 
2013-05-24 08:22:54 AM  
he is going to get clobbered in the congeniality competition
 
2013-05-24 08:26:19 AM  
McConnell's not above blowing all the judges to win.  That wouldn't even crack the top 10 dirtiest things he's done in his career.

Hey, backstabbing is a talent.

What, no lapel pin contest? It's the most important one!
 
2013-05-24 08:35:09 AM  
Yep. The Democrats are capitalizing on the GOP's infighting by running celebrities and their family members. That always turns out well.
 
2013-05-24 08:42:47 AM  
No pics of her yet? geez guys!

I'll start then

Only a little? I'm projectile vomiting over here.

mat catastrophe: Yep. The Democrats are capitalizing on the GOP's infighting by running celebrities and their family members. That always turns out well.


I dunno, it made what should have been an easy GOP victory into a real battle.  And it really might have helped other Democrats, like Anthony Weiner in NYC, by exposing Republican hypocrisy on "moral failings."  "Yeah, our guy disappeared from his job as Governor for a week to go bang some chick he'd been seeing on the side, then lied his ass off about it.  But your guy sent someone a cock pic!  That's much worse!"

You're welcome.

I'm sure there's a connection between politics and popularity contests based almost entirely on style instead of substance, I'm just too tired to right now to think of it.

Are we sure she's not running against Boehner?

/that could be a boner joke or a tan joke

Wow, so 14 years ago she already had suburban mom hair?

That's probably the smartest thing you've ever posted.

Surprised to see that pic was from 1999.  Without that date on it, I'd have guessed mid-to-late '80s.

She's already lost.


Not if she changes her name to Freedom Henry
 
2013-05-24 09:41:54 AM  
Can't the Democrats at least find someone who HASN'T killed someone to run against Turtle?

That's good, but Freedom Hank is the type of candidate you'd have a beer with.
 
2013-05-24 09:55:00 AM  
Democratic Party seems to have given up finding a person to seriously oppose McConnell.
 
2013-05-24 10:16:42 AM  
Mitch gonna git his butt wiped.
 
2013-05-24 10:37:57 AM  
French Henry? Isn't that a character from a Jack London book?
 
2013-05-24 10:40:29 AM  
I look forward to hearing all about every medication Ms. George has consumed, every parking ticket, every squabble with every spouse.  Not that the McConnell campaign would ever, every stoop to utilizing such information.

between that and hubby's past the dirt is going to be mountainous.

No, you're thinking of Savage Henry.

Freedom Henry and Freedom Hank are why I come to Fark.com.

Thank you.

Now that's actually somewhat obscure.

It's funny cuz:

/Not really funny

Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky), who was Judd's biggest backer when she was thinking about getting into the race, told ABC News that French Henry would be "an outstanding Senate candidate."

so shallow.
 
2013-05-24 12:06:59 PM  
Sorry, French Henry sounds like a thug in some crime noir story.

In fact, I shall now go write crime noir so I can use that name to describe a thug. Nothing personal, you should blame your parents.
 
2013-05-24 12:48:35 PM  
I find the difference in tone between this thread and the Illinois thread that also features a former Miss America to be telling.

Didn't all women have terrible suburban mom hair back then?

As someone else noted at least she was rocking the 'toe hard (insert obvious "I'd rock that cameltoe hard too" creepy comment here)

Better. But to really put to bed all the allusions that could be made about her former name, to really expound on where her loyalties lie, I propose Freedom Yank.

They are still smart enough to know that it takes more than a pretty face to be a Senator.
