Election season took a strange turn on Tuesday when Democrats across the country turned their focus away from Republicans–and shifted blame for everything that has gone wrong over the previous two years towards Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Brett Favre’s broken ankle.
In an internal DNC memo that was obtained by Fingersmalloy.com through a significant bribe thrown at Susan Estrich, the Democrats’ new strategy is revealed:
We can’t continue to attack Republicans over the bad economy. That strategy is as old as a premise for a Joy Behar comedy bit.
We need to find a new scapegoat–and that scapegoat needs to be Favre’s ankle. I bet it sent sexy text messages to Snooki, let’s use that in the Reid-Angle race.
It is no coincidence that once this memo was posted on Wikileaks, the attacks on Favre’s ankle came fast and furious.
At a campaign rally in Nevada five minutes ago, Senator Harry Reid said:
Brett Favre’s ankle is responsible for all of the problems in this country–from global warming to the Teapot Dome scandal.
I don’t care that Favre’s ankle is light-skinned and does not use a Negro dialect, unless it wanted to have one. Favre’s ankle needs to be stopped.
Sixty seconds later in Tennessee, Vice President Joe Biden had this to say about Favre’s ankle:
When the stock market crashed in 1929, Brett Favre’s ankle got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’
Brett Favre’s ankle oversimplified things then and it has no idea how to pull us out of this quagmire.
And I am a deeper thinker than Sarah Palin.
It’s too soon to tell how this new campaign strategy will effect Election Day 2010. I will continue to follow this story until I need a nap.
