Shortly before the presidential election in November 2008, Dr. Red Neck decided to campaign for surgeon general. Red Neck, a recurring character at the Northwest Arkansas Gridiron Show, was running on a platform of ending childhood obesity with a program he named the Childhood Overweight Reduction System, or ChOReS, for short.
In the 2008 Northwest Arkansas Gridiron Show, Hillary Clinton, played by Katherine Shurlds, sings about what went wrong during the campaign and what her future holds.
In 2008, during the heat of the campaign for president, Gridiron looped the race into the musical Mamma Mia, letting a mother and daughter ponder whether John McCain or Barack Obama would be better for their future. The candidates offer their unguarded assessments of themselves.
