I’m proud to say I’ve yet to watch even part of an episode of Honey Boo Boo, or whatever the actual name of that show is. But, I will concede, she is getting harder and harder to avoid.
In part of today’s Morning Jolt, Jim Galloway relayed news that the Augusta Chronicle reported from Augusta’s former First Lady Gwen Young, who hasn’t voted for a Democrat since she was a “young naive girl”, is inviting her Republican friends to meet John Barrow. Why? Why Honey Boo Boo of course:
“Sending Anderson to Washington would be like sending Honey Boo Boo up there,” she said. “To send him up there would make it look like we’re all like that in Georgia.”
Following quickly on the heels of that one liner, the twitter account @RepHoneyBooBoo now exists (or maybe not) as a Lee Anderson parody account, using the hashtag #gapol to gain some quick attention. (It may have been too quick, as the account appears to have already been suspended.) The initial tweets mocked Anderson’s primary confusion regarding the Federal reserve as well as a semi-intelligible one about “SKETTI!”. We’ll have to see if the meme plays out elsewhere.
As for Mrs. Young, one wonders if she also worries if people think if people from Georgia are all like this, too.
