Early Morning Breakfast Blogging

Posted by on Thu, Oct 4, 2012 at 7:13 AM

Rob McKenna didn't write this.

I read a great many blogs so I know that even political bloggers don't always stick to politics and policy. Bloggers write about themselves and the minutia of their daily lives. It's a well established aspect of this particular "artform."

At first I thought I would post a picture of me in my pajamas, as pajamas are every blogger's uniform. But I don't want to give the Stranger another opportunity to unleash the photoshoppers. So there will be no picture of me in my pajamas. Sorry. But I will share a peek at what passes for excitement around the McKenna household on one of our brisk fall Northwest mornings. Marilyn and I are both excited to try this strawberry jam that a friend picked up for us on a recent trip to the United Kingdom. It smells delicious! Some high-quality jam on toast, a banana, and coffee and I'm ready to face a long day fighting for Washington families.

What are you having for breakfast?

Let's get back to serious topics.

Like the red menace attack on Big Bird.

This brief one liner battle between Matt and Gus is the best thing on Slog today.

Gus is winning, by the way. "Engaging with you feels like dying" is hilarious.

@ 47, yikes! Is that what it feels like to be you?

Nah... this feeling isn't narcissistic enough.

If it is a joke then the joke is not funny enough.
And it is going on for way too long.

@ 34, if we're gullible enough to believe that The Stranger would hand the keys of Slog over to McKenna when their relationship is as poisoned as one between a news outlet and a candidate can be, we deserve to be made fun of. I think you're a wee bit butthurt at being fooled.

@26 that was brilliant, though. It belittled Craswell so perfectly. This morning's gag makes fun of us, not the candidate. Clumsier hands on the tiller these days.

Rob if your daughter was raped in downtown Seattle and ended up pregnant, would you allow her to have an abortion?

Green tea, OJ and steel cut oats with some salt. This doesn't seem like parody to me - those posts were thoughtful and honest and unless they were actually full of lies, which I do not have time to fact check before work.

Ok now that Goldy and Dan are both commenting, I am pretty much certain it is parody.

Hmm, the broom line got me wondering if it was parody, but this one makes me pretty sure that it is more likely parody than not.

I have some of that in my fridge right now. I got it at Delaurenti at the Pike Place Market, just like your friend did after they got back from a long trip not thinking of you. Sweep it onto your toast using that broom you plan to give the laydeez.

I have to admit that I didn't immediately consider that this kind of arrangement is completely impossible without a public rapproachment between McKenna and The Stranger beforehand, so I was at least taken into considering that this might be real. That's the point where everyone should be calling "FAKE," not any one particular post.

That said, "let me hand you the broom to break the glass ceiling" is great comedy. I tip my hat to the true author of that line.

I could swear that I saw these jars at the British Pantry in Redmond, maybe not on a stack of Bibles though. I am having a berry smoothie with yogurt and egg. And of course coffee.

Why does Rob "the feminist" hate Washington farmers.

We have a the best strawberries in the world here in Washington State and a thriving jam community.

His promotion of socialist made "English Jam" is an affront not only to the people of this State, but to our forefathers (and as he would no doubt point out our foremothers) who so diligently worked to throw off the shackles of English breakfast traditions, like tea... And jam.

@ 2, they tipped their hand by announcing this news this morning instead of yesterday, or whenever this deal was allegedly struck. People are suckers.

BTW, I don't believe this is anything but a parody. But people in the comments seem to be taking this very seriously.
