I just sent this postcard out to some of my top clients.  I think it is funny…. after all, if these guys don’t need a motivational speaker, who does?  Sheesh, I’ve had some fun watching the campaign, and tons of fun mocking it.  But now I’m ready for it to be over.

Quiz:  Can you tell by these photos who I really support?  Obama?  McCain? Let me know (by commenting below) who I support and how you can tell) and the winner will FREE receive a subscription to Hooked On Humor.

Thanks Kids. Either way, we’re nearly done. The polls will tell us who will win the election. Now….who’s gonna win the quiz? Take a chance and comment below.

    I’d guess you’re for McCain as you look much happier in that picture.
    If so, glad to hear :)

  2. Lea Nance says:

    You support McCain, you are facing into him in the picture.

  3. Melissa Hightower says:

    It has to be McCain, because if Obama is elected there will not be any businesses left for you to motivate/entertain, or at least after the tax hikes they won’t have any money to pay you!

  4. Marc says:

    You support John McCain because (a) there’s more room for motivational speaking improvement on the Republican ticket and (b) you like a challenge !

  5. Motivational Speakers: Brad Montgomery says:

    I really look happier with McCain? Good try. : )

  6. Katie McClellan says:

    I think you support McCain because you look genuinely cheerful with him and it shows in your eyes, smile, and body language — you are holding his hand tightly and have your arm around his waist. You are only standing beside O’bama and your eyes are not smiling.


  7. Beth says:

    You so hate McCain and you admire Obama. You are laughing at poor McCain. He wishes he knew what you know about motivational speaking! On the other hand, you admire Obama so even though you are smiling you are a little shy around him. He is, after all, a great motivational speaker himself.

  8. George Walther, CSP, CPAE says:

    Obviously, you think McCain is a joke, as do all clear-thinkers. You’re surely an Obama supporter, as I’ve always found you to be nutty, but not nuts.

  9. Liam says:

    you support MCcain because your a conservative uncompassionate doosh bag…..am i right?

  11. Terrance Van Horne says:

    Brad … you look like you are enjoying each of these leaders in different ways. From the pictures, I’d say you will vote for Mr. Obama because the two of you seem to be on the same page. You both look as if you are enjoying the scene but with a tone of respect proportionate to the matter at hand.

    It’s a bitt cooler than with Mr. McCain who you seem to be over the top with. Whichever way you vote, I’m sure both you and these men enjoyed themselves and came away with some new insights about yourselves and each other.

    Regards … Terrance

  12. Marc says:


    You’re no loser so I say Obama.

    Do I get extra points for being first

  13. Robert Montgomery says:

    I can’t tell who he supports by looking at the photos. He’s my son, however, and I know the secret. But I’m not telling.


  14. Kim says:

    Nader/Gonzalez. Just because.

  15. Jim (Sterling Hgts - Michigan) says:

    You’re supporting Obama. The picture with McCain was taken in an office setting where it appears you went as an invite/photo shoot (thinking that McCain was funny and he didnt), while with Obama, it was at a support rally where you worked your magic along with his, on the supporters, and both of you appear to be on the same page.

  16. margie towle says:

    mccain!!! sure hope so…you seem to be enjoying [supporting] him and talk about experience [mccain!]…palin has much more than obama..who is barack??? many too many unanswered questions re past….and right under our noses…who has been financing him…why the move to chicago??? etc etc

  17. Elaine says:

    First, right about now I wish it WAS Brad! Since that’s not going to happen, I’m pretty sure you’re supporting Obama because I know that you were for Hilary in the primaries so it pretty much goes without saying…

  18. Laura says:

    Obama seems happy to have your support. McCain may be slipping some cash into your back pocket . . . how much did your vote cost?

  19. Patty/Trish Yonts says:

    Nice job on the photos – looks like you were really with each of the candidates. I’m not sure Obama needs a motivational speaker. I think he is a motivational speaker – he’s just not very funny! I’m sure glad this election is almost over. I am sick of the commercials.

  20. Motivational Speakers: Brad Montgomery says:

    Pretty creative answers. So far we are still looking for a winner though. : )


  21. john wooldridge says:

    Brad, you are a heck of alot funnier than Kim said you were…your father-in-law…..John

  22. Mitch Dutton says:

    I say it’s Bob Barr you support! You, my friend, are a Libertarian! Am I right? Huh? Am I?

  23. Craig says:

    Clearly you’re supporting Obama (the Democrat) because your BradMontgomery.com button is BLUE.

  24. Brad,

    Clearly, McCain did not think the joy-buzzer handshake was very funny. That’s soooo 1950s.

    Obviously, Obama is the man. How else can you explain why you had yourselves surgically attached with blue steel girders through the base of your skulls. Ouch! The things people will do for love.

    Or maybe those are internet connections and Senator Ted Stevens is right: the internet IS a “series of tubes”!

  25. Mitch Dutton says:

    Actually I say Obama – because you have a Brad Montgomery button on his jacket!

  26. Anne says:

    There are some things a college roommate just knows. And I know that you would only vote for McCain and Palin if your body had been overtaken by pod people. Also, it looks like McCain is giving you a wedgie.

  27. Daryl says:

    Hi Brad, I do the watch-stealing routine in my comedy magic act too! Look at that! McCain doesn’t even know it’s gone. So I’m guessing Obama. By the way, even in down-town Hobart Tasmania Australia we are watching your election results with interest. Cheers. Daz from Taz

  28. Eva Abreu says:

    I think it’s Hillary! Why? The answer isn’t in the pictures. Dad’s comment was that even he couldn’t tell by the photos. In Brad’s post from April (“My Presidential Choice Revealed!”) Hillary is mentioned and she’s the top photo (top choice?). Brad’s comment at 8:57pm tonight says that he’s still looking for a winner, so I think it’s neither Obama nor McCain.

  29. Motivational Speakers: Brad Montgomery says:

    I’d say right now Hilary needs a motivational speaker herself. Must suck to be her.

    But nope…she isn’t the answer. : )

  30. Mike says:

    You support McCain because the meeting took place in a private setting (judging from the background), whereas the meeting with Obama took place in a public setting. Which means, you were either invited to an intimate gathering, or McCain actually came to your home. Either option would be unlikely unless you are a supporter of McCain. Also, you are holding McCain’s hand. The picture does not reveal whether you shook Obama’s hand or not. And finally, as mentioned by many others, you look much more excited in the McCain picture.

  31. Sujata says:

    I think, Obama. You look very artifical in your picture with McCain. In your picture with Obama you both look friendly and relaxed

  32. Obama, to be part of h?story!!

  33. Rob Hentschel says:

    You support Brad Montgomery :)

    I can tell that he paid you to make the postcard, it has his web address on it. And besides, he (and his clients) are the ones who will benifit by it.


  34. Annette says:

    Well, I am thinking you are for Obama b/c in both pictures you are wearing the exact same suit and white shirt but you also have a predominately “blue” tie on. You are always smiling, as we should all be, so that is not the key. Which I find funny b/c Obama is wearing a Red tie. I think he secretly wishes he was a Republican too. Happy voting!

  35. Rob Hentschel says:

    take 2…

    You support ME. By making me laugh and lifting up my day. Now give us a hug!

  36. Palmo says:

    Obama – because McCain is try to punch you in the stomach but fortunately, due to your cat-like and ninga response, you manage to grab his fist just milli-seconds before he delivers that Bruce Lee death blow to your mid-section (because you were trying to steal his watch)

  37. Palmo says:

    McCain – because you just PhotoShop’d yourself with Obama – anyone can tell that the light being cast on your face is from a studio spot light from some secret sound stage in California – where they faked the moon landing

  38. Allen says:

    I think that you are a supporter of Obama. You are laughing in the picture of you standing next to McCain because you think that it is funny that anyone would think that you would really support McCain.

  39. It wouldn’t be funny if you were for Obama-he has no humor as evidenced by he and your facial expressions. Also, you are shaking McCain’s hand and laughing with him, which would indicate a preferance for McCain. Use your Xcel Energy billing slip as “proof of citizenship” and vote often!

  40. Sileo says:

    It’s the blue tie! Plus, you are a smart guy with a vision greater than your own self-interest!

  41. I’m guessing Obama because you’re laughing with him. With McCain, it looks like you’re laughing at him.

  42. Motivational Speakers: Brad Montgomery says:

    I just voted. : ) Can you guess who I voted for and why? Nobody one yet. : )

    — Brad

  43. Klaus Jakobsen says:

    The McCain photo has old pictures in the background, which tells this guy is history. In the Obama photo there is a “blue stairway” in the background which could be a metafor – a bridge leading us into the future.

  44. Jason Peck says:

    You’re ALL wrong. It’s Ralph Nader! He’s the only one that Brad isn’t posing with… so there.

  45. Nathan says:

    Of course Obama! He’s the best

  46. john wooldridge says:

    They do need motivational speakers. Both of them! …….

  47. Michelle Salazar says:

    Go Obama!!!!!!

  48. nancy says:

    Fun photos- you betcha!!
    You support Obama cause you’re wearing a blue tie in both photos.

  49. Annette says:

    Since you haven’t stated who you were for, I can only imagine that you have gone into mourning over the loss of the campaign. I know there are a lot of people who feel the same.

    From re-looking at the photos I will have to agree that they look like you photo shopped yourself into the pictures, is this part correct?

    Either way, the election is now over and we all need to come together and work as a nation, without party lines (I find that funny in itself). Let’s pray that the next 4 years are good years for ALL Americans.

  50. I’d say Obama. Looks like you’re at a rally with him, and you look like McCain has just goosed you, thereby offending you and losing your vote..

  51. Craig says:

    Okay, enough with the build up. What’s the punch line? Surely good humorists know how far to milk the joke and when to let the audience release all that built-up tension.

  52. susan schulman says:

    Well the election’s over but your question is still on the site so I hope I’m not too late to win a free subscription. I think you supported Obama because you tilted the photo so that he’s higher, sort of in a rulership position. Whereas McCain’s photo is tilted down on his side, and you’re holding on to him as though McCain’s hand needs to be held to make sure he doesn’t get out of control.
