Big Question: Shall I rejoin the Democrats, so I can throw my hat in the ring for the Presidential Nominee?
I was a Democrat for nigh on to forty years under the influence of my mom and the NEA. Then I got out of public school teaching and started thinking. That was about the time pre-born babies just became clumps of cells. Between the two – thinking and murder – I registered Republican.
But now the Democratic party is calling for me! I’m wondering about changing my registration (just like Bernie) and throw in my hat for president. Granted President Trump is a formidable foe, being street smart, making better deals, lowering unemployment for everyone, raising the GPA (no, whatever that is, GPA is Grade Point Average – but I did that too when I was in school), Back to President Trump, he is doing good with the oil industry, bringing hope to the steal industry, raising wages.. – Oh, I better get off that.
If I’m going to be a Democrat I can’t talk like that. Surely I can find something to hate him for – Oh, Charlottesville, will do. Maybe New Zealand? No, that’s too far fetched. In fact all his errors except for being a tweeter seem to have been way back years ago. By the way, what’s wrong with being a tweeter. I’d better find out. I had planned to learn how to do that because it doesn’t cost much and nobody owes me anything. I wonder where AOC got her rich backings. Might not work for me though because I’m really not young and beautiful, nor do I lack common sense. Most rich Democratic donors will probably think I have enough qualities to not need money – once they know my diversity status. I’ll have enough money then.
If I run, do I have a chance? Check out the diversity considerations for Democratic Presidential Nominees.
Woman? Got plenty. I have to admit I rather admire Kirsten Gillibrand – her being a blond and she is really white.
Asian? There is one, but he is a man. So possibly I could beat him.
Indian? Kamala Harris. Tamil Indian mother and a Jamaican father and a woman, beside she hated Kavanaugh. Rather rough to beat her but she does not have my advantage. I’m a one and only in my diversity field.
Black? Okay, there is Booker but like the Asian, he’s a man. So he’s weak on that front. Beside we’ve already been burned by voting for Obama just because he was a – now how did Joe Biden describe him, “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.” I never could understand why we didn’t get a glimpse of his college records. But everybody is welcome to see mine. Graduated magna cum laude or was it maybe magna cum loud. Couldn’t be loud though because I didn’t say much. Maybe I need to keep my college records under cover though because of my insignificant college – not Harvard or Yale for sure. … I’ll tell the Democrats though, if I have to fill out a resume. It was a teacher’s college in Colorado. If I stress Colorado, and don’t tell that it was pre-California, Mexican, marijuana immigrants (mercy, it was even Republican then), it will be okay. Hope I can get by with so many areas in the “okay” group. President Trump makes me think I might ought to be better than “okay” in some group. Oh, yes, I am better than others in my group – in fact, there are no others in my group – well lots of others but they are not running.
Well, Bloggers, you know I exceeded my word limit for just one blog, so I’m quitting. I have lots more and I still need to tell you more about why I’m considering running as a Democrat. Hope it is somewhat better than “okay” if I stop in the middle of my speech. Which reminds me, who was that nominee who needed a teleprompter to give a very short announcement speech? Anyway I promise my announcement speech will not be short. I’ll come back.
Six hundred and fifty words. Sorry, I apologize. Apologizing makes me a worthy Democrat. Just say I’m sorry. Cable will run it all day then it will be dropped, now I only need to have Nancy and MSNBC tell every one what I meant to say instead of what I said. (692 words – oh, dear, I sorry, my valedictory address from high school was only 385 words long.) Here I am still talking. Oh, dear, I’m sorry. Talking about high school, my year book will pass muster. However some one did call me a DAR. You, my fellow Democrats, don’t know what that means. Well the Republicans will. It means Darn Average Raiser. (Oh, dear, 750 words) Bye. (751)
Probably be back another day, depending on what you all do to me. 😀
