ah, sarcasm.

A piece in the Topeka Capital-Journal today named two men with Kansas “connections” that are eyeing runs for the Presidency in 2008. One is Leonard Peltier, housed at Leavenworth prison, who might be up for parole in ’08; the other is Joe Bellis, who founded the America Party in 2000 and wants to raise $200 million before ’08. He sounds irresistible. Here’s his platform:

“A former evangelical minister, Bellis says on his http://www.joebellis.com Web site that his political mentor was Harry Truman (“We developed quite a friendship,” Bellis says) but emphatically describes himself as a strict constructionist conservative. He wants to outlaw all abortions, end federal involvement in public education, withdraw the United States from the United Nations and the World Bank, cancel the NAFTA and GATT treaties, tighten immigration restrictions, repeal the 16th Amendment (which gives the government authority to collect taxes) and abolish the Internal Revenue Service, and block the socialization of American medicine.”

I’m thinking, if he can do it, why can’t I? Just because I’ll be a little bit too young shouldn’t matter; obviously, crazy really sells.

    Ah, did the INTERNET create CALIFORNIA wackos, or did wackos in CALIFORNIA create the INTERNET?

    I guess we’ll just have to ask Al ;).

    Silly people, I created them both. The Internet and California – both just figments of my imagination.
