Quote of the Day

When asked why he wouldn't accept campaign contributions from political action committees or community groups, Ken Wegner, a Republican congressional candidate from Nevada's 1st district, used an analogy comparing campaign fundraising to extramarital temptation. He explained to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that:

"I have a really cute secretary. My wife's had a few kids, doesn't have a great body anymore and my secretary is really hot... It's that first kiss that's going to kill you. My secretary just wants a kiss."

Campaign finance issues aside, I say Wegner's a brave man. I'm pretty sure my wife would be demanding a new secretary on principle.

i'm pretty sure my wife would be demanding a new husband, on principle.

if he was smart he would have gotten a new wife himself before the older ones body apparently went to crap.

I thought it was a given that you don't mention the hot girls at work to your wife at all. Whether she is your secretary or the hottie downstairs in accounting.

BA said...

My wife and I have a deal: should the opportunity present itself, she gets to sleep with Brad Pitt, The dude on Las Vegas and Tad Hamilton, or the carpenter on While you were out. And should the opportunity present itself to me I get to sleep with my secretary. Seems fair.

Marc said...

Sheldon - Remind me never to cross your wife.

Garg - I'm going to enjoy seeing you get married.

Rabble - I'm always pointing out girls I think are hot to my wife and she tells me if I'm right or not.

BA - You drive a hard bargain... so where do you plan on scouting for your secretary?

Gargantus said...

i'd go to hooters, if i was BA, but not the one in slc... Unless you want an ugly secretary, then go to that hooters.

BA said...

Don't talk smack about TFB's ex-girlfriends Gar.

Anonymous said...

Gar you and I need to get some dinner at the SLC hooters. I will introduce you to the love of your life. I let her get away, don't make the same mistake I did.....

Mrs. McDreamy said...

Don't worry. I will do the recruiting for the secretary. I will only hire Andrew Danjumbo or Josh Duhmel (Brad Pitt is so over).

Simon Birch said...

I know this doesn't make sense. With the whole it's the first kiss that kills comment, I wonder if Ken Wegner is an alter identity of Batman and if Uma is the hottie behind the desk.

Marc said...

1) Garg, you should take TFB up on his offer... I think you have what it takes to keep her happy.

2) For everyone (like me) who had no clue who Andrew Dan Jumbo or Josh Duhamel are, I've linked to pictures of them without their shirts on.

3) Simon - Er... perhaps it's been too long since I've seen Batman?

BA said...

I don't know why she wants those guys, they basically look just like me anyway.

Simon Birch said...

I admit it is cheese especially since I have to explain myself. Uma played the dangerous vixen Poison Ivy in Batman & Robin.

Marc said...

BA - I'll be the first to admit it... you have a damn fine body as long as you're swearing off sugared soda.

Simon - I guess the implication that Uma Thurman is hot is what really threw me off.

This looks like a job for your wife! The consensus is: Uma Thurman is sorta hot in a tough skinny blonde kind of way. If you don't believe me here's a picture of her without a shirt on.

Sheldon said...

now i know why my wife always watched While You Were Out.

Treidi said...

First off Melbo, I am a sucker... My hopes were dashed. I wasn't hoping for topless just some six pack kill bill action shot. Second, I am a big fan of analogies (my wife hates them now) but I have never crossed the line of using hot chicks and adultery to get a point across. Especially because the metaphor usually comes from something you are involved with. I wonder where his mind was to be able to so readily use that scenario to express how he feels?
