I confess that my first reaction to an email from a state senator's email about how wonderful he is was to reply with, "Bite me."
I confess that I didn't do it because my husband says that they "monitor" that stuff. You can't make references to bodily harm.
I confess that I rationalized it by saying that it wasn't a threat of harming him...technically, he'd be the one hurting me if he took me up on my invitation.
I confess that I wasted a whole 5 minutes of my life talking about it. And another 10 minutes typing it all out here. You are welcome.
I confess that I'm becoming a conspiracy theorist or just really apathetic. I think that it doesn't matter what party you are part of you end up being a puppet when you get into politics and your puppet master is the almighty dollar, not your constituents.
I confess that I don't think any of them care about us. About our country, our economy, our value system...any of it.
I confess that they need to send me to the White House. I could be president. Seriously!!
I confess that I'm pretty sure a SAHM who has to balance budgets, pay bills, clothe and feed children and find enough money to pay for freakin' gas these days has a hell of a lot better grasp on main street politics than any of the people back there.
So...there you go...this can only lead to one place and you know where it is...my last confession...
I hereby confess...and declare...I'm running for President! That's right, people! ME!! MiMi for the White House!!
Think of it, someone will ask me a question and I will give an answer that makes sense. I'm betting it will be "Yes" or "No" or "Because I'm the mom!"
I'm not going to dance around the issues.
I'm gonna cut to the chase.
I'm gonna drive a minivan! I mean, what makes you a bigger target...driving around in SUV's with bullet proof glass and a motorcade that costs thousands of dollars every time you go down the street, or a minivan that nobody would suspect?
I will even put a bumper sticker on it..."My Country is better than Your Country," or something like that.
I confess...I even spent way too much time on making my own election paraphernalia...and this post has not ended up anywhere near where I was going with it when I started...
Who's with me?
Is this thing on?
