...for the rest of us!

If Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle (D) had any conservative voters, he doesn't anymore:

The once-fictitious holiday created by George Costanza has spun off into a grass-roots celebration of its own, complete with a best-selling book of Festivus lore and an official Festivus Pole manufactured by a Milwaukee-based firm.

But who would have known that its observers include Gov. Jim Doyle, or that he is arguably Wisconsin's best-known "Seinfeld" fan?

Doyle has placed a Festivus Pole - the unadorned aluminum pole "known for its very high strength-to-weight ratio" - among the other holiday paraphernalia at the governor's mansion.

"I assume we'll be celebrating the traditional Festivus," Doyle deadpanned in an interview on Festivus Eve.

"We'll have to have a meal, followed by Airing of the Grievances, and then the Feats of Strength."



  • If he runs for president, I pledge my support.
