Well, first of all, this election is more than Herschel Walker,” Herschel Walker says, referring to himself in the third person perhaps because there’s no “i” in team, or something. “This erection is about the people,” to which Ted Cruz nods approvingly and Lindsey Graham’s eyes wander. Some polls say it’s Herschel’s erection to lose.
Also, note Lindsey’s “Run, Herschel, Run” button, which appropriates a saying from the movie Forrest Gump, in which the below-average-intellectually Gump is encouraged to “Run, Forrest, Run!” and gets an eventual scholarship to play football at Alabama, not Walker’s Georgia. But Lindsey’s comparing Herschel Walker to Forrest Gump. Forrest “Lieutenant Dan” fucking Gump, like it’s a compliment.
