Coming soon to a dorm room near you: A “Young Boozer for Treasurer” campaign sign.
Hat tip to Mighty Quinn (no relation to Mighty Red Pen) for this little tidbit about Young Boozer, who was recently elected State Treasurer for Alabama. As you might imagine, Boozer’s name has a life of its own and in the aftermath of the election, his campaign signs have become quite a hot commodity.
Boozer himself has a pretty sanguine attitude about his name, a sort of “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” approach. He knows it’s funny, but he’s sticking with it. It was the name of his grandfather and his father, and it is also the name of his son. He attacks the issue head on on his campaign website and in this video, “Funny Name, Serious Leadership.”
Bonus MRP moment: Still following that Cooks Source fiasco? They released a statement on their website. Among other things, it says, “We sincerely wish to apologize to [Monica Gaudio] for this error, it was an oversight of a small, overworked staff.”
