Mike McFadden Asks Me To Debate Him, And I Accept

Fellow Minnesotan Mike McFadden, who is challenging incumbent Al Franken for his seat in the US Senate, has invited me to debate. I accept.

Mike McFadden debate offer tweet

No, Mike, that isn't how I feel.  Al may ignore you, but I won't.  I refuse to tune you out.

As an announced candidate since last October, I proudly accept your offer.

Earlier this year, Politico declared that I was poised to become the Internet's favorite politician. As a web-savy candidate, I wish to compliment you for tweeting your offer and in this way fully embracing the medium.

For a US Senatorial candidate to make an offer to debate a candidate for the US House is unprecedented, and I would say, on your part, brilliant. You have leaped far above the cavernous partisan divide. May your gesture be an example to the rest of the nation that Minnesotans aren't bound by party or precedent.

As a candidate from the Pancake Independence Party, I look forward to discussing with you in the public forum the state of breakfast and what we as concerned citizens may do to better support morning's most satisfying food.

Jennifer Lawrence Nude Phone Hack Victim & Fellow Hunger Games Costar Donald Sutherland Painting

A 16 by 20 inch stretched canvas acrylic painting of Hunger Games co-star Donald Sutherland painted in the manner of a Jennifer Lawrence nude hacked icloud phone photo.

I painted this portrait in response to an observation that all of the recently purloined celebrity phone photos were of females, and that there were no male victim/subjects.

In this painting, President Snow wears a girdle instead of a nightie (pancakes are included on the table in the background, but are not the culprits). The plant in the vase is somewhat similar to the pod trees at the end of 1970's reboot of The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, which seemed appropriate.
