Stoopin’ Lower than the Real Sporer: “The Horror, the Horror…”

In a time when our public schools are expected to raise the academic bar and students are being held accountable, shouldn’t the same level of discourse be applied to raising the level of political discourse?

And shouldn’t the expectations hold true in the world of political humor? Especially by political leaders? This begs the question: How far, or low, will one go to get a laugh in the world of politics?

Last Satuday, Polk County chairman Ted Sporer (left) lowered the bar for political humor when he introduced presidential hopeful, Tommy Thompson, to a crowd gathered at Pagliai’s Pizza in Johnston: "How would you like to have to vote for someone running whose name rhymes with 'Osama'?" The political humor joust, presented in the form of a rhetorical question, prompted a burst of laughter form the audience. Oh I get it, Osama rhymes with Obama. Very clever indeed.

Well, I’ll be darned if Political Fallout is going to stand by and let Ted “The Real” Sporer lower the bar with a cheap shot at Barack (which by the way rhymes with Iraq (laugh track here)). Now’s your chance, dear reader, to do the low-brow limbo. All you have to do is take the following standardized quiz to help gauge where your political humor acumen falls. Be sure to check your answers when finished:

Political Humor of the Fourth Grade Nothing:

Part I: Names that rhyme with notorious killers

1. How would you like having a House Minority Leader whose name rhymes with Ted Bundy?

How would you like to have to vote for a presidential candidate whose last name rhymes with:

2. Saddam Hussein?
3. Charles Manson?
4. Benito Mussolini

Part II: Names that rhyme with human byproducts:

5. How would you like having a Senate Minority Leader whose name rhymes with poopy pants?

How would you like to have to vote for a presidential candidate whose name rhymes with:

6. Poo’ Stain?
7. Poop-Shoot Torpedo?
8. Fecal Bagel?
9. Duck ‘n Pee?
10. Brownback?

Answers: 1. Mary Lundby, 2. John McCain, 3. Tommy Thompson, 4. Rudy Giuliani. 5. Christopher Rants, 6. John McCain, 7. Tom Tancredo, 8. Chuck Hael, 9. Mike Huckabee, 10. Sam Brownback

If you scored a 7 or higher, you’ve passed the quiz and are either well versed in your GOP leaders/presidential contenders and/or your affinity for potty humor. If you scored 6 or below, you probably thought Ted’s Osama bit was a real hoot. (laugh track here)
