The New Republic is reporting that country superstar Tim McGraw might run for governor in Tennessee.
While we’re on the subject of wacky Democratic governors, word in Nashville has it that Tim McGraw is seriously considering a run at the governor’s mansion in 2010. He’s been floating the idea for a few years now, but with the recent thrashing of lawyer Bob Tuke by Lamar Alexander in last month’s senate race, Tennessee Dems have been casting about desperately for a high-profile Democrat not named Harold Ford to take on Bill Frist, who is almost certainly going to run. And they could do a lot worse, I suppose, than the Indian Outlaw. Which is saying something.
And yes, that would make Faith Hill the first lady of Tennessee.
It’s funny, the last time I wrote about Tim McGraw, way back in May, he had just worked a deal to sell Fritos. Naturally, I drew comparisons to the original Fritos spokesman…
…The Frito Bandito.
Now, you are never going to know how this blog stuff works. I have written well over 1,000 posts covering a wide range of topics and that one has received some of the very highest search engine traffic. To this day, every day, a good number of Tim McGraw fans find this page probably expecting to see something about his undying love for Faith Hill or, discussion about one of their favorite songs and, here I am talking about McGraw pimping corn chips and comparing him to an politically incorrect cartoon character.
Ironically, the title of the New Republic piece is….”Quick-Draw McGraw”!
Good Luck Guv’nor!
Anybody up for some Al Gore Brand Sun Baked Organic Vegetable Chips and Hummus?
