Why Settle For Faux Hicks When The Genuine Article Winks In Your Direction?

John Raese no longer must settle for out-of-state actors to portray "hicks" promoting his candidacy for governor of West Virginia: He now has the formal endorsement of a genuine out-of-state hick, former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Raese's inherited fortune originated in West Virginia, but his pink marble driveway (right), limousines, homestead exemption and family are located in Florida. The craving for a "hicky" veneer consequently reflects self-awareness (the carpetbagger candidate probably does not own a "John Deer" hat, for example).

Speaking of faux hicks, have you seen the ad where the current WV governor shoots a rifle at the Cap'n Trade Bill? They left out the part where he got confused and raped the stimulus package.

Candidates bearing guns in campaign ads -- such as Manchin shooting a piece of legislation, or Raese wandering around with a rifle over his shoulder and his finger on the trigger -- are goobers appealing to other goobers.

If you ever get a line for the first Democratic candidate to run ads in which the president or the Speaker is burned in effigy, I'll take Altmire over Manchin. But not by much.
