Rep. David Scott (D-Georgia) - Another "front runner" for the Stepin Fetchit Award. Might take the honor away from Senate wanna-be, Rep. Harold Ford, Jr.
Rep. Albert Wynn (D-Maryland) - Nominated for "Lawn Jockey" Award
Rep. Artur Davis (D-Alabama) - Nominee for "Handkerchief Head" Award
Rep. Sanford Bishop (D-Georgia) - Nominee for the "Uncle Ben" Award
Now, remember, these elected officials are suggested nominees, and that doesn't mean they are automatically given the award. We want to be fair in who becomes the object of our ridicule. We are still accepting nominations until Summer 2006, just in time to coincide with the Congressional Black Caucus Legislative Weekend.
Just like "The Colbert Report" features a segment called "Better Know A District", we at the Lawn Jockey Awards have a similar segment, called "Better Know Your Congress Critter."
