We must elect this man mayor of Minneapolis

If nothing else, I hope the Ed Morrissey vote, at least, is secure.

Update (Ed): Hey, I’d love to vote for Wagner, but I’m not going to move into Keith Ellison’s district to do it …

LOl. It’s like a video of a beta-males imagination of what a real alpha-male is. Who posted this again?

The coffee was a nice touch….

pookysgirl on September 13, 2013 at 8:58 AM

Priceless.

Chris of Rights on September 13, 2013 at 9:00 AM

He’s got my vote LOL. Was he wearing underwear?

gophergirl on September 13, 2013 at 9:08 AM

WOW….just, wow….

Was that guy even sober when he made that commercial?

powerpickle on September 13, 2013 at 9:18 AM

I’d vote for him. Wait, does Minnesota have Voter ID laws?

*does a quick search online*

Nope. 😉

BigGator5 on September 13, 2013 at 9:21 AM

Ummmm…. OK. At least he’ll make the race interesting. (I hope.)

GWB on September 13, 2013 at 9:23 AM

Maybe with $100k a year, he could buy a real bathing suit.

Jus’ sayin’.

bigmacdaddy on September 13, 2013 at 9:35 AM

His next ad should feature him wearing a diaper, calling himself The Stuart Smalley Slammer and diving onto a generic electoral opponent from the top rope of a wrestling ring.

He’d be a lock for election in Minnestoner.

M240H on September 13, 2013 at 9:52 AM

Sounds drunk!

bluegill on September 13, 2013 at 10:25 AM

Hey why not? Could Minneapolis get any worse.

Minnesota did give Jesse Ventura a shot.

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:26 AM

bluegill on September 13, 2013 at 10:25 AM

You would know.

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:27 AM

Funny.

I thought for sure he was going to plant a big kiss on the young lady at the end à la Al and Tipper …

ShainS on September 13, 2013 at 10:28 AM

Does Bishop know this guy??

ToddPA on September 13, 2013 at 10:34 AM

ToddPA on September 13, 2013 at 10:34 AM

How do we know that isn’t bishop?

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:35 AM

Jump in a la… oh!

Valkyriepundit on September 13, 2013 at 10:39 AM

If I had to facepalm this adequately, I would need facial reconstruction afterwards.

Valkyriepundit on September 13, 2013 at 10:41 AM

I dunno…is that the same pond Mike Gravel threw a rock into? Maybe it hit this dude in the head.

JetBoy on September 13, 2013 at 10:48 AM

Hey, it’s Putin’s Viking twin!

Steve Eggleston on September 13, 2013 at 10:54 AM

How do we know that isn’t bishop?

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:35 AM

Bishop wouldn’t have to try this hard.

NotCoach on September 13, 2013 at 10:55 AM

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:35 AM

Bishop wouldn’t have to try this hard.

NotCoach on September 13, 2013 at 10:55 AM

And Bishop would have been armed.

Steve Eggleston on September 13, 2013 at 11:03 AM

Hahahahahaha

Jaibones on September 13, 2013 at 11:04 AM

Am I hearing slurring of words?

Awesome.

blatantblue on September 13, 2013 at 11:07 AM

Allah, I actually DO live in Minneapolis and I was planning on sitting out the election because a DFL hack will win whether I vote or not.

BUT…

Out solidarity with you, my Hot Air sensei, I will actually drag my ass down to the polls and cast an Allahpundit in absentia ballot for this dude in your honor.

So ya got that goin’ fer ya, anyway…

Bruno Strozek on September 13, 2013 at 11:07 AM

“I’m jeffwagner and iappovethis messssge”

You Sir, are very very bad!

ToddPA on September 13, 2013 at 11:19 AM

Update (Ed): Hey, I’d love to vote for Wagner, but I’m not going to move into Keith Ellison’s district to do it …

Come on; it’s Minnesota – no voter ID required.

Out solidarity with you, my Hot Air sensei, I will actually drag my ass down to the polls and cast an Allahpundit in absentia ballot for this dude in your honor.

So ya got that goin’ fer ya, anyway…

Bruno Strozek on September 13, 2013 at 11:07 AM

That’s the spirit! The question is whether it’s Jim’s or Jack’s spirit Wagner drank before this video.

Steve Eggleston on September 13, 2013 at 11:22 AM

cozmo on September 13, 2013 at 10:26 AM

Yes it could believe me

Bruno Strozek on September 13, 2013 at 11:07 AM

I’m voting for Cohen. He seems to have some oomph and he realizes the benefit of the casino at Block E.

gophergirl on September 13, 2013 at 12:03 PM

My favorite line is “and I will NOT go to strip clubs…anymore”

tkb1 on September 13, 2013 at 12:06 PM

Bishop? Is that you? He’ll never read this.

Bmore on September 13, 2013 at 12:10 PM

Not a particularly good look you’re sporting there Bishop. ; )

Bmore on September 13, 2013 at 12:12 PM

well that certainly wasn’t creepy in any way at all.

Sachiko on September 13, 2013 at 1:02 PM

He offers surety that he will start staying out of the strip clubs. That will leave him with just his integrity. He will be too honest for politics.

[email protected] on September 13, 2013 at 1:10 PM

I love it, haha.

Othniel on September 13, 2013 at 2:23 PM

Just as Anthony Wiener exits the political stage, another candidate emerges to invoke images of shrinkage.

UltimateBob on September 13, 2013 at 2:43 PM

The guy struts around shirtless like a Putin wanna-be.

UltimateBob on September 13, 2013 at 2:59 PM

But does he have a killer deal on a cream puff 4 door sedan with power everything?

claudius on September 13, 2013 at 3:01 PM

I dunno… he says he’s not going to strip clubs any more.

Is that really the sort of mayor you want; one who doesn’t support strip clubs, any more?

Scribbler on September 13, 2013 at 6:22 PM

Like a white guy could win in Keith Ellison’s district. Please.

Maddie on September 13, 2013 at 9:01 PM

When I moved back to Minnesota, after an absence of 29 years, I wash’t sure where I wanted to live. But I knew I wasn’t going to live in Minneapolis, nor anywhere else in Hennepin County for that matter. The rest of the state is okay though, including Saint Paul.
