Murdo Girl…Don’t worry Murdo, I’ve got your back

Murdo Girl: No more fun and games team Coyote! It’s time to prepare for the convention. It’s time to pick a running mate. It’s time to torpedo Barney Fife once and for all. It’s time to..What? Teresa the Newspaper Liaison to beat all liaisons what’s wrong with you?

Teresa: I was just getting a little twitterpated Murdo Girl with all the” it’s time” stuff. We need a campaign slogan. I think we had one once, but I haven’t read the paper in awhile and I forgot it.

Murdo Girl: You mean to tell me that my Newspaper Liaison doesn’t read the paper? Oh, never mind. I was having so much fun at the All School Reunion last week that I totally forgot I was running for President.

Murdo Girl looks around the room obviously surprised at the attendance of her mandatory meeting being held in the Jones County State Bank basement Coyote headquarters.

Murdo Girl: Listen up everyone. All two people give her their undivided attention. Who is that you’ve got with you Teresa? I need to come up with what to call you. Teresa the Liaison to the Murdo Coyote is too long and hard to spell…how about… Treason?


Treason: I don’t know who she is Murdo Girl…I thought you knew her. Murdo girl and Treason stare at the woman sitting in on the campaign strategy meeting.

The Stranger: Good gosh you two…I’m A I! I just have a new hat that’s all. Let me get back out there Murdo Girl. I know there just has got to be some Barney Baloney out there somewhere. You know, something we can use to wipe his pinched, thin face off the face of the ballot.

1-A l

Murdo girl: Okay, it’s all about faces.

A I: Okay

About that time here comes everybody else:

Top from left: Jerry the Bean Counter, Yram Sicnarf the crack up reporter, Laura the Town Crier, Sherri the Photographic Drawer, Bart the body-guard

Bottom from left: Smart the body-guard, Braveheart the bodyguard, Carol the campaign song singer, Lav the publicity stunt coordinator, and The Queen.. turn around Queenie. It’s not like we don’t know who you are.

Murdo Girl: Bean Counter…Do I have to pay all of these highly paid staffers?

Jerry: Yes

Murdo Girl: In that case, I hope I pay you by the word.


After almost no discussion, here are the minutes to the meeting. Just the convention agenda part. It has to be into Tammy Van Dam by tomorrow. Nothing happens at the Harold Thune Auditorium with the Jerald Applebee floor, without Tammy knowing about it.

08-Mary's birthday
Don’t make me regret this MG

Thursday: Speech “Who are the Coyotes?” by Lav, (Publicity stunt coordinator). Following Lav’s speech, there will be a  commentary by Treason, who will later advise the Murdo Coyote.

Friday: That’s when we bring out the big guns. A I will report on Barney Fife’s bullet. Lav took a picture of it at the reunion. She must have had an unusual BOB (burst of brain) during a lull in the activities.


Saturday: The speaker will be the one all the before who want a good after, have been waiting for… Murdo Girl, who will  be super inspiring while she outlines her platform and names her running mate.

Sherri, the Photographic Drawer will be giving us drawings of it all.

At the culmination of each evening of hardcore politics, Carol will sing the new Coyote campaign song…”Oh Here’s for Murdo Girl!” It will be sung to the tune of, “I did it my way.”

Following the aforementioned activities, there will be the same thing for Barney Fife. Because of logistics, it’s necessary  to have a joint convention

Get ready Jerald Applebee floor…You can run on it, but you can’t hide from Murdo Girl and Barney. One of us will be your next Commander in Chief.


1-Barney and the President
There once was a deputy named Fife, Who carried a gun and a knife, His gun was all dusty, His knife was all rusty, Cause he never caught a crook in his life. (just saying)

    I think I deserve a cabinet post after you win. Can I be Secretary of the Department of Interior Design?

      May I request to be considered for a post in the Cabinet? I would like to be Secretary under the Random Acts of Kindness Department. I’ll start working on my resume and letters of reference immediately. Thank you for this consideration, Madam President Elect! I do play well in the sandbox with others and have never been sent to the principal’s office nor to the police station.

        Sounds like you’ve lead a sheltered life! That’s a good thing. No references or resume needed. All that reading gives me a headache. You ‘ll be vetted by the vet anyway.

    I’ve been up all night MG. I have read all 202 blogs and related comments. I can’t find the slogan. I wonder of Barney had Vladimir hack your server?


    • Mary Francis McNinch July 29, 2016 / 10:36 am that you mention it, my server hasn’t been serving very well. If we can’t remember the campaign slogan, it must not have been too good. We need something that speaks to the masses.

        I don’t like Make America Great Again. I like Horse With No Name but what have they done lately? Let’s concentrate on important issues rather than resurrecting an old rock and roll band.

    With the team you’ve put together, Murdo girl, there’s no doubt who is going to win this election! Lots of BOB out there! Of course, we are all anxious to find out who your running mate is going to be (perhaps Val, since you spent all that time with her recently and she can wear a crown with the best of them!).


    • Mary Francis McNinch July 28, 2016 / 9:51 pm

      So you like Val..She’s a low information crown wearer, but that could be good.

    Dang, I need a speechwriter! We have a real advantage since we’ve got the bullet and photographic proof. Now if someone could just recall the campaign slogan.


    • scoper07 July 28, 2016 / 7:26 pm

      We’ve covered a lot. We talked about walls, towers, low flying planes, quick sand, mud, ponds, crawdads, and lemonade. I’m rather confused myself.

        Ok. I’ll study hard and get the facts right. I might have to pull an all nighter but I’m up to the challenge.


      • Mary Francis McNinch July 28, 2016 / 9:58 pm

        Let me know if you come across the campaign slogan. I forgot it.


      • scoper07 July 28, 2016 / 10:04 pm

        If we don’t have it, you don’t need it? Is that it? Click, have I got it yet? Is that it? I’ll keep reading.

        Lav are you laughing at what 07 just said? It cracked me up. Click, have I got it yet?

        Freedom is like lemonade? Is that it?


    • Mary Francis McNinch July 28, 2016 / 9:48 pm

      Yes, the slogan..I hate to go back and do all that re-reading. Might have to come up with a new one.


  5. scoper07 July 28, 2016 / 6:29 pm

    Well written MG. I can’t believe you came up with Treason. Hope your speech writer and stunt coordinator can spin that one! The race is heating up for sure.
