Gorilla Glue Goes Bananas

July 18, 2009

Just as you were thinking that Obama’s overwhelming power of charisma is beginning to wear out, some private sector decision signals that any opportunity to show favour for the president is still worth taking, even if it is in such a ridiculous context as in the following:

[T]he Gorilla Glue company wants nothing to do with Zell Miller’s endorsement: The former senator, complaining about our jet-setting president, suggested that maybe “Rahm Emanuel ought to get some Gorilla Glue and put it in that chair in the Oval Office and say ‘Sit here awhile.’” I own Gorilla Glue and it’s pretty tough stuff. But I didn’t exactly take Miller’s comments seriously. Gorilla Glue isn’t taking any chances, however, and has issued a press release that states, in part (and with the utmost seriousness):

The Gorilla Glue Company does not advocate the gluing of President Obama to his chair with their product.

Whew, the French Cowboy’s glad that has been cleared up. But you can’t help but wonder whether the quick-thinking PR team of the Gorilla Glue Company didn’t have something more in mind than just a few brownie points with the Obama-loving public. After all, they go on to state:

Gorilla Glue represents just the type of growing small business that President Obama mentions as the job creators in our country.

Gorilla Glue continues to: create new jobs, boast of no lay-offs, provide healthcare for all full-time employees and proudly make all products in the USA.

Is this code for “Please, pleeeeaaaase, don’t kill our business with your crazy regulations and tax hikes! We are the good guys! We even defended you against Zell Miller!”?
