Retailing pillows is not credible training for government

The MyPillow guy is dithering over whether to run for governor of Minnesota — he’s distracted right now, trying to decide whether to overthrow the system by pursuing bogus claims of election fraud, or join the system and run for elected office.

You may laugh now because Mike Lindell is a delusional moron, but I wish to remind everyone that five years we were all looking at each other, saying “No way, this Trump goombah is a delusional moron, he’s going to go down in flames in the primary.” Remember that. Take these ridiculous clowns seriously and slap them down hard early.

    With a bit of luck, he will split the party, muscling out a more traditional R-ist in the primary by appealing to the MAGA wanksters, and lose by a landslide as the majority of non-crazy Minnesotans are repeatedly reminded by the democrats of him wanting to declare martial law.

    Plus, remember back in the day when we put that fathead wrestler in the governor’s mansion?

    I don’t even get his business model. He makes pillows with memory foam and then markets them on TV? He didn’t invent memory foam, and I have been seeing memory foam products for years. They’re very common at Costco.

    There really is a sucker born every minute.

    Once again it comes down to branding and marketing. It’s why back in the 80s you had to have a Mr. Coffee instead of a coffee maker. It’s why your kids only want Fruit Loops for breakfast instead of Malt-O-Meal Tootie Fruities.

    Ray Ceeya@11 And it’s why my kids don’t get Fruit Loops! (Nor generic crap either in that case.)

    Darth Cheeto demonstrates the downside to Voltaire’s prayer:

    Just because your prayer is answered and your enemies are ridiculous doesn’t mean they won’t win. And then you’re stuck living under ridiculous enemies.

    Bed, Bath, and Beyond and some other retailers will no longer carry his shitty pillows, and he’s getting sued by Dominion, so he may need a job soon.

    Not super relevant, but does anyone else think he kinda looks and sounds like 80s Jesse Ventura? That mustache is straight out of ‘Running Man’. It’s been bugging me for years (long before he got involved in politics).
