Most newspapers give endorsements to particular candidates during election times. So, here at “Chasing Thoughts. . .” I have decided to unveil my endorsement for the presidential race. I know, everybody has been dying to know who I will endorse, hanging on the edges of their seats in . . . . . . anticipation. Well, today is your lucky day. Today, we have learned not only that John McCain has chosen Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, but you will also learn who I am endorsing for the presidency.
If you have ever read my blog before, then you know that I am very much AGAINST Obama. For more reasons than I can really list in one post. His pick of Joe Biden as his running mate is not exceptional. Biden seems like a nice guy (I saw him on Leno months ago) but I cringe every time the man calls himself a Catholic. Catholics do not support abortion. Ever. Biden does. Okay. . . I’m not going to continue down that rabbit trail at this time.
And, you may have guessed by now that I’m not a huge fan of Hillary, either. It would be safe to say that I will never be able to support anyone who is pro-choice or who advocates a national healthcare system. Hillary’s mistake, by-the-way, was not letting ol’ Bill campaign for her. That man definitely has the gift of gab. I don’t like his politics, but he’s easy to listen to.
And McCain . . . nope. I don’t much care for him, either. I just don’t understand why the Republican party couldn’t come up with someone more charismatic. Like Napoleon Dynamite, for example. Or his buddy Pedro.
So, I know everybody is absolutely dying to know who I am endorsing. Okay, at first I considered Bill and Opus (If you don’t recognize those names, see the “Bloom County” comics by Berke Breathed, 1980’s). But, since it really probably is futile to cast my vote for actual cartoon characters (although it is often difficult to tell the difference) I realized my only choice was to vote for Dave Barry. Yep, good ol’ Dave. He is the only man in the country, who, at the end of every year, has actually kept track of the year’s events and takes the time to document them. Sounds like he’s more than qualified, to me! My family even has bumper stickers that say: “2008. Dave Barry for President. Yes, of the United States.”
Care to join our cause? Visit Dave’s website. (I’ve included that link right here for your convenience, however it has always been in my sidebar links section under “Fun”.) If you want to buy a bumper sticker of your own, visit Dave’s Online Store. Want to know where Dave stands on the issues? Don’t miss Dave’s Q & A.
And, for those of you who just are dying to see what the bumper sticker looks like, here ya go:
I am sure that everybody is excited by this new option for presidency! Hang in there, November is just around the corner, and you’ll have your chance to vote then. See you on the campaign trail!
