Driving south on Lincoln Blvd. this morning, astute commuters might have noticed something noticeably out of place at Republican Party Headquarters.
Sitting outside the building, flanked by President Bush signs and a Republican elephant symbol in the windows, was a large yellow papier-mache dog donning an American flag top hat and scarf. To top it off, the dog was holding a ‘Brad Henry for Governor’ sign.
Yes, you read that right, in front of the Republican party was a yellow dog holding a Henry sign. The dog was quickly removed and dismissed as a prank by party officials.
“Sounds to me that there are some Democratic operatives with too much time on their hands,” said Republican Party chairman Gary Jones. “If they want to concentrate on things like that, that is fine. We are going to concentrate on getting more Republicans elected.”
He did add that “we’ll probably have some fun with it.”
Newly elected Democratic Chairman Ivan Holmes said he does not know who is responsible for the joke. But, the dog did come from the Democratic headquarters. It had long been stationed in the party’s kitchen, Holmes said, but he decided to throw it away a couple days ago.
Apparently someone took it from behind the building and placed it in front of the Republican headquarters, he said.
Republicans, tag, you’re it.
