Ravnsborg Signs Victoria Jackson, Drives Minnesota Vehicle

Rick! Rick! Rick!!! I told you that you need to get Amy Poehler to come do a fundraiser for your Senate campaign. But do you listen? Do you listen? No!

Now GOP Senate candidate Jason Ravnsborg goes and steals your SNL thunder by getting... not Amy Poehler, but SNL alum Victoria Jackson for his May 13 fundraiser in Sioux Falls:


Oh, the buzz! The gravitas! The opportunities for Ravnsborg to break out with topical musical entertainment!

Ravnsborg has apparently convinced Jackson that America didn't really die when Obama won in 2012. He is probably hoping she will refrain from singing and just focus on telling Jason's Sioux Falls crowd how homosexuals, Communists, and Muslims are working together to destroy America by building bike paths. Perhaps she will also explain her status as a registered Independent and why she is "very disappointed with the Republican Party."

If Jackson's act doesn't sink Ravnsborg's candidacy, perhaps rolling up to the Jackson event with Minnesota license plates will:

One of my sources tells me this photo shows the Chevy Suburban in which Ravnsborg and his campaigners have been touring South Dakota. It has Minnesota plates:
And on the door, there appears to be a Jason Ravnsborg for Senate logo:

Alas, my correspondents need better phones... or the wherewithal to walk five steps closer and take a clearer picture of the door decal. But we can see an R at the lower left, a straight line above and offset right from that R, then the beginnings of three red stripes on a slant...


...which appears to fit the standard Ravnsborg logo.

...ah! And just as I'm complaining, my correspondent comes through:
Read my mind. Well done, team!

So tonight's riveting question: who are Ravnsborg's Minnesota stringers? Doesn't he know that those high-wage-passing, income-tax-paying, gay-marriage-loving hippies want to turn absorb our state into a Wabasha-Bloc puppet state to buffer their People's Republic from Wyoming?

Ha! I knew Ravnsborg was a front for some devious liberal force in the Republican Party!

p.s.: Rick, are you dialing Amy Poehler's number? Are you? Rick! Call Amy! Political subtext! Rick! Rick! Rick!

    My sources are telling me that the Suburban is being driven by our Madville friend from Minnesota, Deb.
    I suppose I better hide, she'll probably pop me for that.

  2. owen reitzel 2014.05.05

    Victoria Jackson???? ROFLMAO!!!!!!!

  3. Dave 2014.05.05

    Victoria just might, I repeat, might, be nuttier than Annette.

  4. Bree S. 2014.05.05

    Oh Boy. My heart is all a flutter at the thought of spending "a special evening" with Jason. Who can resist those obscure Twitter quotes.

  5. Bree S. 2014.05.05

    Jason, you mispelled "Minnesota" on your flyer. You're Welcome.

  6. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.05

    I'm wondering if Tina Fey could do an impersonation of Victoria Jackson

  7. Bree S. 2014.05.05

    Seriously, why does that flyer look like a 12 year old designed in 1993.

  8. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.05

    I just listened to her singing, if that's what it's called, she ain't no Rick.

  9. Bree S. 2014.05.05

    This is planned against L. Todd Wood.

  10. Rick 2014.05.05

    Maybe Toonces is driving the MN plated suburban? Toonce, watch out!

  11. caheidelberger Post author | 2014.05.05

    Perhaps we can ask Jason Ravnsborg if he will disavow Jackson's declaration that President Obama is not a Christian. Or maybe we can ask Jackson whether she agrees with Ravnsborg on the EB-5 visa investment program. Either question should provoke hilarity.

  12. caheidelberger Post author | 2014.05.05

    Bree, I'm not up on my Fox commentators. What's L. Todd Wood all about?

  13. Deb Geelsdottir 2014.05.05

    "Rick, Rick, Rick!" Hahahaha!

    I thought VJackson's little ditty was kind of funny, especially when I considered its absurdity. It got funnier and funnier. Seriously.

    Watch out for those lesbians! They'll marry, divorce, get famous and rich and travel the world! Eeek! That kind of life is reserved only for people in the suburbs. That was the best.

    Good post Cory.

    OBTW, Roger. As a proper liberal, I would never drive a big gas hog like that. There is very little I need to haul and I rarely drive off asphalt so I don't need 4 wheel drive. Make a nasty comment like that about me again and I will tell everyone you're a closet Rush Limbaugh fan. Heh heh heh.

    First he was barnstorming SD in a Warthog. Now in a Minnesota Suburban. At least I haven't heard of him stiffing his employees and service providers and committing election fraud-related felonies and ripping people off with fake raffles. Man, do we have any law enforcement in SD, or are Republicans just above the law? This WonderBread candidate hasn't figured out how to be a crook yet. Maybe he offers what the non-insider Republicans want. He ought to be embarrassed using a Minnesota plated vehicle while campaigning for a South Dakota office, but it's not as bad as Kristi Noem fleecing taxpayers for an around the world vacation and making her monkey face on the Great Wall of China.

  15. Bree S. 2014.05.05

    Jason took your advice, Cory?

  16. Rorschach 2014.05.05

    You know, if Ravnsborg can raise enough money to run tv ads he ought to run one saying, "Now more than ever we need to hit the reset button. Don't send another career politician to DC. Don't send an angry malcontent or a financially irresponsible sociopath. None of my opponents is gonna change things in DC for the better. They're going to make things worse. Hit the reset button. I'm the only candidate who served our country in war, and I want to serve you. Send me to the general election, and I'll make you proud." He may have an outside chance if he can afford to get out a message like that.

    Republicannabalism: food for nought .

  18. Deb Geelsdottir 2014.05.06

    Clever Larry. I like it.

  19. larry kurtz 2014.05.06

    dain bramage, deb: used to it, i have.

  20. Disgusted Dakotan 2014.05.06

    So an Iowan out campaigning in SD in a vehicle from Minnesota with a campaign manager from Texas fooling South Dakotans into thinking he is from South Dakota?

  21. Bree S. 2014.05.07

    Ravnsborg is trying to claim the Suburban from Minnesota with a political magnet is a rental vehicle.

  22. Bree S. 2014.05.07

    I think he needs to take his 1% of the vote and go back to Iowa/Minnesota/Texas.

  23. Laura 2014.05.08

    So anybody think that the "Minnesota" vehicle was a rental? Rental cars have different state licenses all the time. This is a non-issue. Also heard that candidate Nelson took the picture...way to go with those "investigative" skills. The Enterprise sticker is usually displayed in the window...look there!! Too bad Nelson and other people can't encourage people as to why they should vote for them, instead they spend their time convincing people who not to vote for. I wish ALL candidates would just spend their time convincing voters why we should vote for them!!

    Jackson is being brought in to be the straight man in this comedy sketch? She is such a sad,pathetic creature maybe they are going for the sympathy vote.
