About the silliness

There have been inquiries about some of the more unusual elements of my campaign. Let me try to explain: They are satire. Each of the silly things you see on this site is a parody of some analogous element of “legitimate” contemporary politics. I don’t know if many people are going to get the points I’m intending to make or even understand what I’m trying to lampoon, but it doesn’t really matter. I enjoy my own jokes.

You may have guessed that I don’t have much respect for the current political world. I do have great respect for the basic process and I’m slightly saddened by its failure to produce good leadership, but I’m not going to be morose about it. (I might be a little bitter at times, but even then I try to keep a sense of humor.)

Whimsicality is a part of my personality and I’m not going to try to hide that. I am, however, limiting my mockery mostly to the peripheral parts of my campaign. I’m almost completely serious about the policies I advocate in any of these blog posts.

I'm voting for you, Mr. Hayes, if for no other reason than you never once called my house and interrupted my dinner.

Look for me - I'll be the vote in EBR, Ward 3, Pct 4A. Hoo-RAH!

Update - the other vote was my son.
