MS. POTATO HEAD CHOOSES RUNNING MATE
While "out on the stump" this morning at The Farm, Ms. Potato Head took advantage of the beautiful day to announce that Ms. Gnome has accepted the invitation to serve as her running mate for the upcoming 2008 election.
As Ms. Gnome stood sweetly at her side, Ms. PH welcomed her to the campaign, promising that the two would make a formidable duo when it comes to "tackling the tough issues and bringing about the changes so many folks desire in this great country!" "Ms. Gnome may appear a bit matronly, but make no mistake about it--she's a concerned citizen who knows a lot of little people and understands what they seek in leaders at the national level. Beyond that, we share a passion for eye-catching 'head adornment'--sort of like Her Majesty and Camila," Ms. PH declared.
A relative newcomer on the political scene, Ms. Gnome will provide balance to the outspoken spud. Ms. Gnome always wears a smile, despite the fact that her nose has been broken for over 15 years. When asked about her rather not so chic choice of apparel, Ms. Gnome laughed off the notion that she's "fashionably"out of touch. "I'd rather stop and smell the flowers (see below)... breathe in the essence of our beings... touch the Earth... than concern myself with the superficialities of image. Thinking people can look beyond my 'old world' wardrobe," she explained.
Following today's announcement, strategists for the Ms. PH / Ms.G met to begin talks about the direction of their campaign. As for the two running mates, they took the afternoon off to bask in the sun and discuss milliners and haute couture.
