No, these are not Obama and McCain campaign staffers. But in honor of the beginning of political mudslinging season, I offer up this shot from the Arizona Republic slide show of an annual event in Scottsdale called “Mighty Mud Mania.”
During the early 1980s, I actually ran this muddy obstacle course as a young sportswriter in a so-called “media celebrity” race against an equally unknown FM radio disc jockey. It was the most mud I ever had on me until I ran for Governor.
