So those of us who find lulz in inept campaigns all shed a tear with the news today that former Rep. Harold Ford, Jr., Joe-Tenn., would not run for Senate in New York, where he was gonna totally wow the kids with his younger, hipper Joe Lieberman-style campaign.
Alas, what could fill the void of Ford’s helicopter rides over Staten Island? What could — wait….
Do — do you hear that?
Th-that’s Mickey Kaus’s music!
Pioneering political blogger Mickey Kaus took out papers filed to run for U.S. Senate in California, he told LA Weekly. The Venice resident said he’ll run this year against Barbara Boxer for her seat.
Oh. My. GOD. This is going to be AWESOME. I wonder how the voters will respond to a candidate who I am told has been caught in flagrante delicto with several members of the species Capra aegagrus hircus. But I’m sure the voting public will show Mickey understanding. At the very least, as much understanding as he’s shown to homosexuals.
