Brown County Fair-goers, pop over to the Brown County Republicans’ booth (southeast corner of the Expo building, near the bathrooms in case you start to feel ill) and vote in the Corn Poll!
Grab a kernel, place it in the jar of your favorite GOP presidential candidate, and see who wins! The Brown County GOP will be taking votes from willing fairgoers through Sunday… which is good, because as of Wednesday afternoon, the winner appeared to be…
…Donald Trump? My quick scan of the jars indicated Trump had the most votes, followed apparently by Ted Cruz and Ben Carson.
Come on, Brown County Fair-goers, you’re smarter than that.
A German-American woman (really! she emigrated here from Germany!) said she was o.k. with Trump until she heard him in the first “debate” last week. Today she cast her kernel for Carson. I asked her why, and she said she’s impressed by Carson’s story: raised by a single mom, didn’t come from money, achieved so much on his own….
“Just like Bill Clinton!” I said.
I just can’t hang out at the Brown County GOP booth. It’s just too tempting….
But the rest of you, get to the Corn Poll, open with the Brown County Fair through Sunday, and prove that local voters aren’t dumb enough to mistake celebrity and arrogance as qualifications for Leader of the Free World.
