Am I Hot or Not?

Posted by on Thu, Oct 4, 2012 at 2:17 PM

Rob McKenna didn't write this.


I am proud to be a redheaded man. Or as a young volunteer called me earlier today, a "ginger." I don't even like ginger, except on Gilligan's Island (right, guys?). But apparently this is a new slang word for redheaded people, and one I'm happy to adopt for my official campaign bio. My lovely wife, Marilyn, obviously thinks ginger guys are the cat's pajamas. But I heard another volunteer snickering that gingers are "gross." I don't know how someone could believe this: I see red hair as nonpartisan. It's not blond and it's not brown. It works across the aisle. When I followed up with this volunteer about her comment, she clarified that some people just don't like ginger pubes. I can take care of that, if it'll pick me up some extra votes! There's a Walgreens across the street. I can't decide what I should do, so I thought I would put it to you, the voters of Washington State. Do you think gingers are hot? Or not? I've read that Slog polls are legally binding (though I've never enforced them as the attorney general!). Ha-ha!

Rob, what's it like being a post-operative trans-sexual? And why do you hate gay people so much?

And no, red hair only looks good on the guy I seen at Bartell's on Olive yesterday and Prince Harry

Even though I'm the the real Rob McKenna, The Umblest Person Going™, I must in all modesty point out that they made a whole website in honor of ME, not that pathetic impostor:…

Oh, the joke is that you think he looks funny. Well, at least you guys have dropped pretense of satire.

I love gingers, as a rule. I do not love Rob McKenna. He's a dishwater ginger at best.

Gingers can be hot. Sadly Rob McKenna, you are not.

Gingers can be super hot, eg: my bf, Prince Harry, but Rob does not qualify. Sort of looks more like a pasty brown, ughh...

Ginger chicks - hot. Ginger Republican geeks who look like my accountant - not so much. This is getting boring. Don't you have news you need to cover? Like Republicans up to no good?
