Senator Barack Obama added yet another superdelegate to his supermenagerie over the weekend when Senator Amy Klobuchar from Minnesota — which Obama won handily last month — announced her support for his candidacy…
Klobuchar, a freshman Democrat, said Obama speaks "with a different voice, bringing a new perspective and inspiring a real excitement from the American people." She compared him to the late Hubert Humphrey, who served as a senator from Minnesota and as vice president.
What exactly Klobuchar meant is open to speculation, but — in the absence of more credible information — we're forced to assume that she's referring to Obama's and Humphrey's spot-on Swedish chef impersonations. But, — in the spirit of full disclosure — I'm just a really big Swedish chef fan.
And more good news for the Illinois senator seems to be forthcoming, as several — give or take one or two — congress people from the upcoming primary state of North Carolina are also readying their support for Obama…
One North Carolinian confirmed that at least several of the state's House members would go public in favor of Sen. Obama before long. Meanwhile, elected officials in other states with upcoming contests, including Indiana, Montana and Oregon, are weighing whether to endorse Sen. Obama.
It's not confirmed who these representatives are or if they prefer the Swedish chef to the meep-meep laboratory assistant guy or possibly even the old dudes in the balcony (however fans of those two are widely suspected to be McCain supporters).
Helping to drive the endorsements is a fear that the Obama-Clinton contest has grown toxic and threatens the Democratic Party's chances against Republican John McCain in the fall.
Yeah, whatever, but we're talking about The Muppet Show here. Does anyone remember that one in which Sylvester Stallone sticks his thumb up Miss Piggy's hoohah? Or did I dream that?
