Well kids, Pamela Gorman Day was a huge success. Yesterday her campaign coffers swelled to over 1 biiilllliooon dollars. Much of that credit goes to everyone that listened to FTR Radio’s wall to wall coverage of PamelaPalooza. Thank you!
The lead up to yesterday was fun. I thought it would be funny to make up a bunch of ridiculous statements about Pamela Gorman and tweet them with the hashtag #pamelagormanfunfacts. I heart Twitter.
Well it didn’t take long for me to gravitate to some old Chuck Norris fun facts. I repackaged some of them as Pamela Gorman fun facts and included a new car smell. Others joined in on the fun. It was pretty successful.
Later I found out that CQ Politics noticed our shenanigans-and wrote about them on CQPolitics.com. Fingers Malloy on CQ Politics? All I can say is- it’s about time.
From CQ Politics:
Random can be funny. Just ask “Fingers Malloy.”
Malloy came up with a clever way to invite listeners to tune into “Pamela Gorman Day” on his online radio show, “The Snark Factor.”
He tweeted fictional and clearly silly “fun facts” about Gorman, a Republican running for the House in Arizona’s 3rd district.
Then others joined in.
Here are the contributions to #pamelagormanfunfacts that made us LOL, groan, or both:
- “Crop circles are @PamelaGorman’s way of telling the world that sometimes corn needs to lie down.”
- “@PamelaGorman can win a game of Connect Four in only three moves.”
- “@PamelaGorman knows where Carmen Sandiego is.”
