A Question of Adequate Narcissism

Should We run for Congress?

I was commenting on Old NFO's Blog and the thought struck me...

I was recently appointed to legislative public office in Arizona. True story. I know that I haven't been here long, but long enough and I'm a registered voter. For those of you who know me, I vowed never to be a politician (better to own one than to be one has been my mantra). But with AOC, Ali and the rest of those freaks sitting in Congress, I think that I might be the perfect fit, because I would have NO INTEREST in a second term

If not me, possibly WSF, LSP, SiGraybeard, Ed, Mike_C, Jim, Raven, The Bayou Renaissance Man or even Old NFO (the great one), himself. Any one of us would speak of the Mohammedan scourge against Christians. (Juliette (born troublemaker), you're a British Citizen - you have to stand for Parliament, not the US House of Representatives). John Derva, you could depose the present King of Norway. (Job opening for me as Chief of Assassins guild?)

Put any one of us on Fox New Sunday with that Trump hater, Chris Wallace, and let US speak for the President and for the bullshit that pervades. The Deep State thinks that they hate President Trump. They'd really hate any one of US

Hey, OLD NFO, what if we nuked (tactical nuke) the black meteorite that the Muslims worship in Mecca (not during hajj, so you don’t kill a million of them)? Would that be “somebody somewhere did something to someone?” 
I also found it interesting the Somali-American congresswoman said that we killed 1,000 Somalis during the “Blackhawk Down” action. My reaction was, “That was all we killed, how embarrassing. There must have been more than that.” Sometimes those Army guys can be weak when figuring the body count. It swings with political wind, but in a place like that, you always invoke the law of averages. 
Had I been king (and lucky for the skinnies that I wasn’t), I’d have dispatched every AC-130H in inventory and would have ordered a ship full of 20 MM in to refill the guns, and replacement barrels, and would have placed a round every six inches in Mogadishu. I lost a friend there and another took 3 rounds from an AK-47 in his back and barely survived 
I need to run for Congress in Arizona so that I can sit on the floor of Congress and call those people to account. Sure, I’d be a one-term hero, but who cares? 
LL for Congress. Send cash only to my exploratory committee
I'm only kidding about Congress, but you can still send cash if you really want to. It will go to my favorite charity. I'd like to buy a backhoe & trailer, but the price point currently frightens me.

And no, I will not release my tax returns.

  1. What have you been drinking on your trips abroad?

    I've held an elected public office (Precinct Committeeman, both as a Republican and as a Democrat). Even at that lowly office the number of people lining up to kiss your ass for something they want is amazing.

    Backhoe and trailer? Check out Richie Bros. auctions. https://www.rbauction.com/heavy-equipment

    As a divorced hetrosexual male, the opportunity to meet interesting females was an encouragement to run for re-election.

    1. Heterosexuality in politics is becoming more of a rarity.

      I’ll check out Ritchie Bros. — thanks.

  2. @WSF - I've heard of Richie Bros. Some of the in-laws have bought equipment from them.

    @LL - Could you survive a term without going full-meltdown on us?

    1. My melt-downs and rants are the only charm I can bring to political office. That and my rapist wit.

  3. Well, as one who walks in the wild side, rides a yellow bike with a basket, AND takes clowning to a whole new level, I’m surprised I’m not already PM! I’d make a bloody better job of it than the cockwomble’s present! They need a trouble maker!

    1. Exotic hair styles seem to help you achieve political notoriety

  4. My wife is mayor of the town we live in and that's enough politics for me. If you're elected I do hope you go on C-Span regularly. That should be most entertaining.

    1. I like your style. You share the power while leaving range time for yourself!

  5. Yeah, they wouldn't like us a bit! Much less the dems talking heads if we ever got on one of the talk shows... LOL But it COULD be fun! :-D

  6. You should definitely run.

    I'll even vote for you all - if the Dems can vote illegally, I don't see why I can't.

    I hear there's a good pension...

  7. Where are you looking for backhoes and trailers that the price scares you? They shouldn't cost that much.

    I would love to see one of you in office. But you are too smart for that.

  8. Oh, LL...gotta see those tax returns. Gotta gotta gotta. :)

  9. I was encouraged to run here in Michigan years ago by a well-connected friend.
    I couldn't see taking a 2 or 4 year absence from my career and remaining current in my field.
    I would have no interest in lobbying.
    I can see the conundrum of those who do step up.
    But a retiree?
    Maybe we should raise the minimum age of candidates.
    And Social Security would be protected.

  10. Dan Crenshaw of Texas seems to be doing pretty good, though I've not followed him closely (he's not my representative). Reinforcements are certainly needed, though. Not I, though. I get tongue-tied in groups of more than two people, and then comical malapropisms fall out of mouth. It's best if the Donks provide the unintentional comic relief.

  11. If you are gonna run for office, you should leave the backhoe work to others....just sayin'.

    1. I’d rather run a backhoe at the mine than be a politician.

  12. I for one look forward to your campaign and, we should form a SUPERPAC.

    1. That’s a splendid idea. AOC is raking in millions

  13. At least, in office, you can make enough money to buy a new backhoe and trailer without our donations.

    1. It’s called a donation in kind, or “soft money”... I think.

  14. Security could become an issue. I guessing you would pick your team. Could be they would need an armorer. If so, I'm in.

  15. Yes, run LL run. And I can finagle a trunk load of votes for you (I've been in Chicago awhile now, I've figured things out here). You're a lead pipe cinch to win, what with a legion of dead voters in your back pocket.

    1. I’ll make you chief vote getter with an appropriate salary. Your Chicago experience will be invaluable
