March 1st, 2011: Rep. Jon Runyun beats "Toaster Oven" in Jeopardy! Challenge


Republican New Jersey Rep. Jon Runyan was the sole competitor to beat the Sanyo SK-7W Toaster Oven (nicknamed "Toasty") in a mock Capitol Hill exhibition of "Jeopardy!" Monday night, beating out House Speaker John Boehner, Rep. Michelle Bachman (R.-MN), and Eric Cantor (R.-VA.), and Kevin McCarthy (CA-22).

Cantor and Bachman scored no points at all: Cantor could not figure out how to use the buzzer system and Bachman looked into the wrong camera throughout the Jeopardy! Challenge.

Sanyo hosted the Washington event -- a non-televised, informal game of Jeopardy -- to demonstrate the impact of kitchen technology on society, according to the Hill.

"Toasty", Sanyo's interactive toaster-oven, is equipped with some of the most sophisticated heating coils in the world.

"I am not surprised Toasty lost; it is not an American made product. A Black and Decker toaster oven would have been tougher," Runyan said, according to the Hill.

Toasty was unable to answer a question about the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision, but Runyan knew the answer from his debate with former Congressman John Adler. "Luckily, I still had that answer written on my hand," shared Rep. Runyan.

In other news, Gov. Christie told the Star-Ledger that he was upset that Charlie Sheen was "stealing my signature ranting and yelling bit. That is my bit, not his."

Meanwhile Obama will continue to follow Bush policy by keeping Gitmo open and by using military courts.

Don't you feel like a sucker?

Will Obama ever keep his word? Will any politician?

Good question... I generally don't believe politicians and like dirty bedsheets should be changed often.

And like what will happen in most of the country come 2012, independents and mainstream GOP voters in the 3rd District will go Democrat when they realize what they got when voted these lame-brain Tea Partyers into Congress. Lies, rhetoric, stupidity and for most, a job that's completely above their pay grade.

Too bad the Senate ones are in for six years -- what a mistake!

Do you mean actual real tea party members or the fake ones that Democrat John Adler put out to strip Runyon of support?

What frauds the NJ Democratic party are.

Sanyo hosted the Washington accident -- a non-televised, breezy bold of Jeopardy -- to authenticate the appulse of kitchen technology on society, according to the Hill.
