The release got us to thinking about his slogan, "It's time to take Mayberry thinking to Washington."
Apart from the fact that there are a growing number of Americans who don't know what the heck he's talking about, even though the Andy Griffith show/Mayberry RFD still airs on cable, we happen to have many recollections of Mayberry thinking that his slogan evokes and what of it he might take to Washington.
Would Andy Mayberry be Gomer, madly racing around shouting "Citizen's arrest!"
Or dopey Goober?
Or befuddled Floyd the Barber?
Or rock-chunking Ernest T. Bass?
But we keep being drawn back to the image of earnest Deputy Barney Fife, entrusted with but one unchambered bullet and a propensity for bamboozlement by everyone from the town drunk to visiting bank robbers.
Let Andy work for you!
