The world belongs to those who can laugh at it. When Polk County Republican Chairman Benny Fogleman led the local candidates in The Twelve Days of Christmas, the candidates were asked to act out a part of one of the 12 days. The following pictures are the candidates who were not afraid to have fun and laugh at themselves (even in the presence of local media). I applaud these candidates for their actions. Their willingness to just let loose and have fun makes us feel like they can keep things in proper perspective and have a little fun. That's something that we can all connect with and relate to. Thanks for a great laugh :) -- Editor
