Peter Kinder and the "Wicked Infection"
|Peter Kinder: Now famous for his "wicked infection."|
In fact, when running for Governor, especially when just coming off a scandal involving sketchy bars and stripper poles, we would go so far as to advise that one should never, under any circumstances, employ the phrase "wicked infection."
Kinder, who is Missouri's lieutenant governor and the likely GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2012, made headlines this summer for stopping in at a (now closed) bar in the Grove known for its "pantless parties," but supposedly just to use the restroom, as well as his (now admitted) infatuation with a stripper in the mid-90s, but supposedly only in a Dean-Martin-esque platonic way.
The scandal had finally stopped making the news in recent weeks -- Kinder was starting to get some donations above $5,000 after a long pause and political chatter in town was finally about something other strippers.
But then, last week, Kinder explained his recent lack of campaigning to the St. Louis Beacon by saying that he had a "wicked upper respiratory infection."
The result of that blunder can now be glimpsed on Google. Just pop "wicked infection" into the mighty search engine, and look what comes up: Kinder's got four of the top five results.
So while he may not be polling all that well against Governor Nixon, when it comes to running against computer viruses. Kinder takes not just the gold, but the silver medal, too. Nice work!
