Today Mike helps Mitt Romney. Mike last helped Rep. Tom Tancredo, and isn’t HE doing great!
The Founding Fathers of our great country believed that any wealthy man with a fervent belief in Democracy and Freedom, anyone who owned enough real estate and slaves, could be trusted to lead this Republic. While we don’t quite feel that way today – real estate is not doing well right now – it is still true that money is the life-blood of the Democratic Process.
After all, without funds a presidential candidate cannot afford to produce and distribute the mind-numbing television commercials, radio spots, newspaper ads, direct mail and robo-phone calls that underwrite our great media conglomerates and their vital tabloid journalism and riveting reality shows. It might even be said that U.S. politics is itself a reality show, which demonstrates how warped our sense of “realty” has become.
But it is a new dawn in America, where the Iowa Republican Caucus has just proven that all you have to do to is lose 130 pounds, get yourself appointed Governor, avoid becoming a lawyer, motivate an underground network of home-schooling parents and Bible-literalist church congregations, and you too can contend for the leadership of this great land.
That is why, crazy as it seems, I will now offer my invaluable help to multi-millionaire and former Governor Mitt Romney.
