“A good rule of thumb is if you’ve made it to thirty-five and your job still requires you to wear a name tag, you’ve made a serious vocational error.” Dennis Miller
Five minutes of browsing through Greg Gianforte’s Facebook and Twitter pictures will leave you with a few thoughts: he can’t draw a crowd, genuinely smiling is difficult and what is with that name tag? You would think that a millionaire running for the most important job in the State of Montana, and someone who’s been at this for a while would have earned automatic recognition by now. And if that’s what you thought, you would be wrong. You can count on two things at every ‘event’: his forced smile and a name tag.
Just me and all this hay, but I know who I am. I have this name tag to tell me. We have people coming today, right?
Yes, I am Greg Gianforte. My sign and snazzy name tag tell me so.
I like boats, cannons, and most of all, I like name tags.
Great crowd today! As you can see by my name tag, I’m Greg Gianforte.
I’m Greg Gianforte and this is Greg Gianforte’s truck. I smile better when I’m with my truck.
Why am I here and why did I wear my name tag? I feel really uncomfortable….
Aaron, are they laughing at me and my name tag? I’m not sure what they just said. I still feel really uncomfortable….
Best day to wear my name tag ever!!! Did I mention that I’m Greg Gianforte?
I know they can’t see me! But dang it, the name tag makes me feel more confident!
Maybe I should get shirts to go with my name tag. Donald has shirts. Maybe I should pay people to show up too, hmmmmm….
That’s some beard, but not worthy of a forced smile. If you say my name you can have my ice cream, it’s right here on my name tag.
GIANFORTE! YOU’RE GOSH DARN RIGHT!
