Fresno -- The famed Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow today announced his support for Chuck Poochigian's campaign for state attorney general.
"Senator Poochigian is the only candidate for attorney general who hired a cast of headless fictional characters to star in his ads," said the Horseman . "As perhaps the most famous headless character in the western canon, I am proud to support his candidacy."
At a press conference at Poochigian headquarters in Fresno, the Headless Horseman took the opportunity to highlight the contrast between Senator Poochigian and his Democratic opponent, Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown.
"Unfortunately, Mayor Brown's ads feature real people with faces," said the Horseman. "That's not cool. And as a big fan of the .50 caliber sniper's rifle, I could never vote for Brown. Nothing removes a head more cleanly than a .50 caliber round ... even if it has to travel through two police cars to get there."
Of course, Poochigian's camp have had some fun online, as well, particularly with Moveonjerry.org, which has a great quotes section.
My favorite: is [Jerry Brown] “is the most self-serving, inept politician that I have ever met in my 35 years in politics,” said by the one and only Sen. John Burton.
