Today's collection of nonsense will be cut short today. Why? Because I'm going to go play softball and then drink. This is America.
You know what's great about America? Theoretically, anybody can run for political office.
The downside of that? Practically speaking, anybody can run for office.
Consider, for instance, the candidacy of Basil Marceaux for Governor of Tennessee:
I love just about everything about this video: I love that he calls himself BasilMarceaux.com; I love that he wants to get rid of "traffic stops"; I love that he wants us to say the pledge of allegiance to the Republic every morning when we come out and pray to God and say amen; I love that he instructs us to have a nice day twice.
He has a website too. I swear it works; I've been there and it is gloriously incoherent and curiously entertaining. You can try clicking here, but when last I attempted it wouldn't load. Why? Because the site is hosted by something called 'freesitenow.com,' which is probably not set up to handle the high traffic that this guy so justly deserves.
You might try visiting again later tonight, perchance before you drift off into slumber land.
Speaking of Softball, Chris from RvD wrote something funny on the blog about that and the Cubs. Thank God somebody still writes on that thing; lord knows I haven't published anything there in a while.
Note to self, write something for next week.
Okay jackasses. I'm going to go now. If you need me, I'll be the one drunkenly passed out on the Lincoln Park softball fields.
