Imagine our happiness the other day when we returned to the door of the plush offices we call Mirror HQ to find a brochure asking us to help re-elect our good friend Paul Gallegos. It was like effing Mardi Gras, only without all the Catholicism.
The brochure itself is classic Gallegos. In it he takes credit for a lot of things he hasn’t actually done and promises to do a bunch of other things he’ll never actually do. The usual.
But our very, very, very most favoritest part was the photo on the back with him posed in front of a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Because, really. When we think Gallegos, we think the 16th president of these United States who emnacipated the slaves and never told a lie, not even a little one like to his wife or something about, say, a certain surfing companion, ever. That’s just the kind of reputation Paul Gallegos has.
Our souls were stirred! We were having a moment. And just like that the Graphics Dept. had to come along and ruin everything.
Those experts of crap Photoshop work took one look and knew right away that the Honest Abe pic was as crap as crap can be.
But anyhoo. Little known fact: His artistic license is valid in more states than his law license. True story.
