Well, political fans, never let it be said that Leavenworth Street is not an equal-opportunity mocker of both sides of the aisle.
We were watching Channel 7’s little report on the Auditor race – nice summary of the candidates and their general positions, of course initially focusing on Kate Witek’s party-hopping.
Then they shifted to an interview of Republican candidate, State Senator Mike Foley – apparently interviewed by KETV’s Todd Andrews on Foley’s back patio.
So we see Foley, suit jacket, colorful tie, sitting very erect, making a good point… then BAM! The camera pans back and we see Foley’s legs under the picnic table and what’s he got on? Jeans, white socks and red tennis shoes!
What the suit pants and Florsheims were at the cleaners? Did Todd arrive for the interview mid-wardrobe change and insist Foley sit right away? From the waist up, with his giant forehead, he looks like he’s ready for Meet the Press, and below deck he looks like he’s ready to meet Ralph Malph and Potsie.
Hey Mike! Ronald McDonald called and he wants his shoes back!
