The BS of Politics: A News Anchor’s Run for Congress

Hey there Folks!
Melvin P. Atwater here and you’re not gonna believe the big old Bag of BS I have for you today!
I’m sure a few of you will call BS on it, but it’s on the internet so it must be real! Quantum Universe and all, you know. Maybe not here and maybe not now, but somewhere, somehow.
The logic is infallible!

In the latest episode of ‘As the BS Turns’, we have a former CNN host, John Avlon, deciding to run for Congress in the 1st Congressional District. Avlon, fresh off his job as a journalist, is hoping to bring some star power to the sleepy district. But let’s not forget, this is politics, and the BS is as thick as the cow pies we sell here at

Avlon’s aim is to oust first-term Republican Rep. Nick LaLota. He believes that with the right kind of candidate, the seat is winnable. But let’s be real, TV pundits have a mixed record when it comes to running for office. Remember CNBC’s Michelle Caruso-Cabrera’s failed attempt against Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in 2020?

Avlon’s charisma and his ability to spin endlessly about how Democrats need to defeat Donald Trump and the party that supports him might be his selling points. But let’s not forget, this is politics, and the BS can be as blinding as a desert mirage.

LaLota’s spokesperson, Will Kiley, has already started slinging the BS, calling Avlon a ‘Manhattan elitist without any attachments to Long Island other than his summer home in the Hamptons’. Avlon, on the other hand, claims he’s had the home in the Hamptons since 2009 and has been registered to vote there since 2020.

So, what’s the real story here? Is Avlon a serious contender or just another BS artist trying to make a name for himself in the political arena? Only time will tell. But one thing’s for sure, the BS is already piling up, and we’re here to shovel it.

Stay tuned for more episodes of ‘As the BS Turns’.

  4. The back-and-forth between Avlon and LaLota’s camp already sets the stage for a dramatic political showdown. Accusations of elitism and summer homes in the Hamptons add layers to the narrative. It’s a cl#flops#ic tale of political mudslinging, but amidst the BS, there might be some substance worth uncovering.

  5. The mention of Avlon’s charisma and his anti-Trump stance as potential selling points is intriguing. In today’s political climate, leveraging such sentiments can be powerful. However, the skepticism around TV pundits turned politicians is valid. It will be interesting to see if Avlon can translate his media presence into political success.

  6. Avlon’s summer home in the Hamptons versus his voter registration date – sounds like a cl#flops#ic case of ‘I’m just like you, Long Islanders’. The drama is thick, but will the voters buy into this narrative? Time to grab the popcorn and watch the show.
