the GOP has turned Heckle (Tim Pawlenty) and Jeckle (Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal) loose.
Their job? To follow Obama around the battleground-state of Ohio and sit on nearby fences and squawk the conservative rhetoric of the moment. If you look closely at the photo, you’ll notice Jindal does look like the cartoon Magpie Jeckle. And, take a look will ya, at that loopy grin on Heckle’s face!
These guys are enjoying really themselves vying to see which is more
stupid conservative and thus a good fit to be Mitt “Richie Rich” Romney’s Vice Presidential pick.
This strategy (following Obama around like crazed stalkers) was particularly effective in the Rust Belt according to right wing wackaloon campaign planners. That’s because many of the white, working-class voters could be Obama’s biggest liability in November.
Not to be outdone, Democrats provided their own rebuttals given by Heckle and Jeckle.
Speaking about Romney before one of the president’s three speeches in northern Ohio, former Ohio Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland drew widespread applause when he said Romney was hiding his personal wealth “in the Cayman Islands, in Switzerland and God only knows where else” and “took money from shadowy South American investors when he started Bain Capital.”
Heckle or Jeckle…it doesn’t matter which ends up hanging with Richie Rich in the bid for the Oval Office, they’ll still add up to losers!
