Apparently, mentioning the great comic genius Gallagher has its payoffs. First, he runs for governor. Now, I’ve garnered a link on his Official Website.

And, honestly, the education proposals on the sound clip at the main page sound better than many I’ve heard from the guys currently vying to be president.

    I dunno. I thought pundits were once saying that Gallagher was going to replace “bricks ‘n mortar” comics.

  2. James Joyner says:

    No, just smash them with a big mallet.

    I was actually offered free tickets by Gallagher himself for his show in Ocean City Maryland for tonight by mentioning his run for Governor.

    For a few days, I had the top link on his “links” page, which pretty much caused my daily traffic to triple due to referrals from his site.

    Hilarious. I got 69 hits from it before 8 last night, which was a fairly minor impact on my overall traffic for the day. But still fairly amusing.

    No ticket offer, unfortunately.

  5. Gallagher says:

    we can fix that, like Arnold, I’ll be back…
