Today I would like to announce I have assembled an exploratory committee to look into the possibility of The Headbanging Hostess running for the Senate seat being vacated by former Democrat and current Independent Joe Lieberman. As of now the committee consists of me and my bunny, if he'd come out from under the dining room table. Volunteers are welcome.
What I lack in operating budget I make up for in opinion. In the past I've tried my best to keep my food blog separate from my personal political views but, given my possible candidacy, I'm going to have to go cake-balls to the wall exercising my First Amendment rights. I was raised Democrat by two immigrant parents and switched parties during the second Clinton term. I became a Libertarian in response to my immense dislike for the War on Drugs. However, I've been realizing slowly that Libertarian philosophy isn't totally for me. As much as some of it sounds good in theory I doubt much of it would work in the real world. Hurricane Katrina was a game changer for my Libertarian leanings. They would have done less for the victims than President Bush. Absolutely inhumane in my point of view. And more recently, their opinion on Global Warming pissed me off royally. Anyone who doesn't think we need to treat our plant with more respect is an absolute moron.
I am still a HUGE fan of our Constitution. I am a FIRM believer in separation of church and state. I am a life long Atheist. Call me a Secular Humanist if you want, I don't care. I don't believe in God, Buddha, Allah, Zeus or any of the other gods from from human history. Furthermore I don't believe it's my place nor anyone else's place to tell people who they can and can't worship. Do what you like, it's a free country, but don't expect the government to promote your religion over any other. Government and religion, keep them separate! Congress should not have an opening prayer. It's ridiculous. Pray in your office if you have to! This is not a Christian nation.
I'm sure I pissed of a bunch of people with that one, but I don't care.
I believe in equal rights for everyone. I support a woman's right to choose. I'm for the end of the War on Drugs and the start of the War on White Collar Crime. I'm for individual rights and responsibility. I don't trust big business and lobbyists. I believe government should be transparent and understandable and accessible to all.
Saying that, I'm sure there's a ton of stuff I don't currently understand or even know about. I am absolutely willing to learn and try to understand any and all cluster fucks I may inherit from former elected officials.
I would also like to point out that I'm most likely the first candidate for public office to use the words "cluster fuck."
Is this a publicity stunt? No more than Linda McMahon running for office. Hey, if Eddie Murphy can do it, so can I.
Who's with me?
