Running for U.S. President
As one of the "old white dudes" running for the GOP presidential nomination, I second the Tucson Weekly's endorsement of Sarah Gonzales. Leaving aside that Tucson Weekly's use of the term "old white dude" is ageist, racist, and sexist, I think Sarah is an articulate spokesperson for her generation, her gender, and the Hispanic community. Rock on, Sarah, and best wishes to the other courageous candidates. And because I, like Kip, didn't get to say it on Saturday--Penis.
And last but not least, for 2014 substitute 2015. There, was that so hard. At least I know people have read my platform since several have pointed out my miscalculation on the years. Several meaning two. See, I'm learning to be a politican already. Kip Dean has some great ideas, be sure to read his platform which I'm sure contains no errors.
My corrected platform dates should read as follows: for 2012, substitue 2013. For 2013, substitute 2014. These things happen when you reach 66 or am I 67? When I was in the Army on my way to Korea, I passed the International Date Line on a troop ship on my birthday and so had two birthdays that year. This may account for the oversights in my original platform. The only other adjustment I would make is to eliminate the wise-cracks about VP Cheney and Mr. Nader. There's enough sniping going on around without me adding to it so delete my references to these two statesmen. Thank you. And my cat thanks you.
Jim, What's a year or two between friends? Just wishful thinking that I can get the House in order by dismissing them earlier. I'll correct the dates on my webpage. Hope your concert went well. See you in New Mexico later this week.
