I’ve been asked by a
deranged dedicated reader to endorse Ripley for President.
He does have many good points, such as his inability to tell a lie – his tail tells how he really feels. He’s lived in DC for years, which makes him attractive to Washington insiders, but he’s definitely comfortable being outside.
He doesn’t care about social issues or taxes. No, he’s more about defense. He recalls Teddy Roosevelt by walking softly and chasing a big stick.
He is not without controversy. Critics say his deafness will prevent him from listening to his constituents, but others say that previous presidents have already set that precedent.
His campaign manager assures me, “He will work hard at the U.S. Capitol (reflecting pool) and show you his butt.”
