Betty Poundcake 1958-2011
This is a sad day. My longtime political consultant Betty Poundcake died this morning from a cause yet to be determined. She was 53 years old.
Betty was a medium who can talk to the deceased. She was kind enough to teach me how to talk to the dead for my campaign in 2008. More importantly, she taught me how to have them reply. The highlight was getting an endorsement from Elvis Presley.
We first met in 2008 when she accidently walked into a Vanna White Supremacist meeting I attended in Greensboro, NC. She sat in the back through the meeting. She said that she and her brother Bobby had a similar fascination with someone named Kitty Carlisle. She wasn’t a game show host, but she was a frequent celebrity guest in game shows.
Betty invited a couple of us members to her apartment the following night. She hosted a seance and we communicated with the ghost of Kitty Carlisle. I was a bit spooked and somewhat skeptical at first. I asked her to try to contact my college friend who was killed in a drunk-driving accident the weekend before graduating with me from college.
Betty said that he was laughing about the mishap I had in Orlando. (Few people knew about that mishap and for the sake of my dignity, I won’t talk about it now.) He also mentioned the prank we pulled on the Dean of Economics. (We had set up his office computer’s home page to a fake website that showed the Dow crashed 1000 points because the companies he had raved about all tanked.)
I will be heading to North Carolina for the funeral. Betty will be missed.
