Dear Blogging Friends: I don’t often post twice in one day but I feel it is imperative that I get my announcement made on Friday. Isn’t that the big surprise day for new flashes? So here is the second part of my political considerations.
Harking back to my last blog there are some things I need to clarify. Then I want to go ahead and mention my competition for Democratic Presidential Nominee, acknowledge their strengths and tell you why I will probably beat them.
First off, I want to explain about the DAR notation in my high school year book. I explained about the “Darn Average Raiser” meaning, but I did not deny it meaning “Daughter of the American Revolution.” I know that would not be good at all; it would probably cost me the nomination right off the bat. I’d be grouped with those Republicans who stand for Patriotism, and be smeared with White Nationalism right off. Now I really don’t mind being white and I am a Patriot, but somehow that is not nice in the current culture. I said/say the pledge all the time. And somehow I will continue to do that in fly over country. I think they won’t care. The coastal states probably won’t be a problem since they don’t say the pledge there very much.
Now back to strengths of Democratic Nominees and why I can probably still beat them.
Julian Castro – Got a winner of a Mexican name, but he is a man. Sort of a rock/scissors/paper situation. I’m woman. Woman beats man. But does Mexican beat woman? Hope not.
Tulsi Gabbard – strengths: her looks and religion. Sort of tough. I will rely on my diversity which will make me a winner.
John Hinkenlooper – Look what he did for Colorado in spite of being a man! But still, he is a man – and white. But I’ve never smoked anything. I’ll stress my love for the homeless smokers now in Denver – and reassure the ones in San Francisco also. I’ll promise to give them safe sanctuary and to never tell them to go back home and behave themselves.
Elizabeth Warren – Easy to beat even if she is an Indian. I haven’t checked but I at least have relatives who are – cousins on the other side of the family were almost full blood. We are equal on the woman part.
Bernie Sanders – No competition there. White man. His only strength is age which sometimes equals wisdom. But I am older than he so I’m wiser! Would that help or hinder? Maybe I need to rethink that. Might not be wise to point that out.
Robert Francis O’Rourke – Man, white Irish ancestry. I’ll make a big to-do about that. Skateboard skills don’t count because 16 years olds can’t vote yet.
Others are named Pete, John, Jay, William, Maryann – No money and no chance to get any because of names that scream white Irish/Scottish/English. Those names have Mayflower all over them.
Granted I have no name recognition yet, but I will as soon as I announce my platform.
Coming tomorrow. My platform and why I will win.
Six hundred and eight words today. Not bad considering I am writing such important stuff. Maybe I can get it into the New York Times if I change the word “stuff” to matters, considerations, affairs, or ….how does this sound. “I am writing about the weightier points of political considerations.” Yes, I like that. It goes well with my next matters and other affairs.
WATCH FOR MY ANNOUNCEMENT TOMORROW ON BLOG AND FACEBOOK. BOTH FREE. MY MONEY WON’T START ROLLING IN UNTIL AFTER MY ANNOUNCEMENT.
Votes I can count on: Bloggers 33, Face Book Friends 65 – not a lot but it’s a start.
