Yum Brands chairman and CEO David Novak, center, held his annual Louisville fundraiser for hunger relief, collecting about $400,000 for World Food Programme. That money will buy 1.5 million meals for some of the poorest people on Earth. Novak was recently honored by the U.S. State Department for directing his company to provide community service worldwide. Thus far, Yum Brands has generated over $115 million for global hunger relief efforts. The theme to this October 6, 2012 fundraiser was “60s Flashback Ball.” It was grooooooovy, baby. Novak wore a long brown wig and rose colored glasses but finally had to ditch them after tripping over his wig a second time. Peace out, y’all. [Mary & Terry Meiners with David Novak]
WAVE-3 news anchor Dawne Gee joined me at the Yum! Founders Day food drive for Dare to Care. Love her. She is exactly the same sweet person in real life that you’ve enjoyed on TV for the past 25 years. That’s my girl.
As Liberals advanced the notion that Mitt Romney sneaked a cheat sheet onto his debate podium, most of the attention centered on President Barack Obama’s mostly uninspired performance. What in the world was he writing on his notepad?
At the first presidential debate, Gov. Mitt Romney hammered President Barack Obama over his first term record. While listening to his opponent, Romney held his head up high in most every camera shot. Obama was frequently seen with his head down as he scribbled notes.
The viewer was left with the image of student being scolded by the school headmaster. The website College Humor offered this exclusive look at the president’s doodling.
It’s a parody, of course, as is this auto-tune of the debate.
MITCH IN THE HIZZLE FOR POST-DEBATE ANALYSIS
The day after the debate, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared on my radio show for projections on how both Pres. Obama and Gov. Romney would strategize the final month of the campaign. AUDIO
James Carville: “I don’t think that President Obama did what this campaign wanted him to do. I think he was off his game tonight. But let’s don’t go overboard here. It will be like a big sort of pushback. … My point is this — President Obama came in, he wanted to have a conversation. It takes two people to have a conversation. Mitt Romney came in with a chainsaw. He’s trying to talk to a chainsaw.”
A pilot decides to propose to his girlfriend. He pretends that their aircraft is going to crash and has her read an embedded proposal from the EMERGENCY PROCEDURES NOTES. After marriage, she’s promising to take over the controls, thank you.
