"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Madison County GOP Wins the First Annual Krusty Konservative Award

This morning I received the link to this story in my email from a friend in Iowa and couldn't quit laughing. How perfect to do an ice sculpture of Al Gore of Global Warming fame after we were all hit by the blizzard during Christmas. The blizzard was then followed by extremely cold temperatures near zero or below. Madison County GOP has came up with the best originality and the funniest idea on how to raise money that we have witnessed to date.

Great job of bringing humor to everyone!

January 2010

For a long time I’ve pondered the idea of giving out awards doe various things. I’m serious about this. There are other great bloggers and other Iowans who deserve to be recognized.

I’ve decided that the first Krusty award should be awarded to the Madison County GOP.

The Madison County GOP commissioned a chainsaw ice sculptor to come down from Waterloo and transform a 900-pound block of ice into a frozen likeness of Vice President & Global Warming Grand Poobah Al Gore.

This is hands-down the funniest thing I’ve ever seen come out of a Republican Central Committee.

Russ from Winterset managed to get a few snapshots of the sculpture during the carving process on Friday; he also came back on Saturday with an AoSHQ approved snack food. Dude, that’s hilarious.

The County Committee is selling raffle tickets for one dollar, and the person who guesses the date and time that the last little piece of this ice block is reduced to liquid form wins 50% of the net proceeds of the raffle (the other 50% will be donated to the local non-profit charity of the winner’s choice).

I suggest that you reward the Madison County GOP for their creativity. Send them a contribution via PayPal.

I now need to figure out what the “Krusty Award” is…
