Mister Bill’s glimmer of hope will soon be squashed by Mister Election

by The Big E on October 18, 2012

In a race that polling guru Nate Silver rates as a 100% chance of victory for Sen. Amy Klobuchar, one-term Legislator and Ron Paul minion Kurt Bills is searching for any glimmer of hope that he can find.

Mister Bills has to look pretty hard. And spin what he finds even harder. Unfortunately for those who’ve enjoyed his comedic stylings, Mister Bills will soon be squashed by Mister Election.

With polls showing little hope for his bid to upset Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Republican Kurt Bills found what he thought was a silver lining courtesy of Google.

Somebody told him that if you typed the Democratic incumbent’s name, one of the first results the search engine guessed was: “Amy Klobuchar’s opponent.”

That, the GOP longshot reasoned, must mean that voters are searching — quite literally — for an alternative, even if they don’t know his name.

Seriously, I couldn’t make this sh*t up. If I made it up, you wouldn’t believe me.

Mister Bills wants Minnesota voters to believe that anyone searching for “amy klobuchar” is unsatisfied with her and really want to know about him.

I think he’s getting delusional.

On the first page of above search of Google, Mister Bills appears on the right hand side among the list of other related people users also search for. In addition to Mister Bills, users have searched for Sen. Al Franken, Gov. Mark Dayton, Rep. Keith Ellison and Rep. Betty McCollum.

At the bottom of the page is one reference to Mister Bills. Unfortunately, its a link to a post at the conservative St. Paul Pioneer Press bemoaning how poorly he’s doing.

Oof.
