Happy Super-Fat-Tuesday

Today is Super Tuesday for those who would be President. Following the day with an attitude of prayer.

It is also "Fat Tuesday," or, as I like to call it, "Loading Up Before Lent." Before giving up something for lent, one overindulges oneself in the thing today. What a world, what a world.

For me, today is just Tuesday. I am going to work soon to earn my keep and pay for my stuff. Yesterday my wife picked up a couple of refills under our new group policy from where I work. One prescription was only $10.00, the other was $138. Here's hoping that our next President will truly make healthcare reform a priority and not just a slogan to get elected.

Maybe I should run for office. I hear Gaston, SC is looking for a new mayor...

I'd vote for you. May I recommend a campaign slogan a friend of mine used when he ran for city counsel in Oklahoma City years ago.

"More of the Good Stuff and less of the bad."

It's not "Pop a Wheelie, vote for Neeley," but it has a simple ring to it. He did it mostly for the free advertising for his law practice, by the way.

"Pop a Wheelie..." Classic! Steve, you made my day.

My favorite was, "Don't Be A Jerk, Vote For Kristi Kirk." Circa 1982

My personal preference would be a characature, much like done for Robert Strickland the year the election was stolen from him. Who could forget!

Man, Robert Strickland had quite the campaign crew working for him! I remember the campaign posters all over the school--the hand-drawn picture was so good it was eerie! I know Mindy Spires was shaking in her boots election day!

Robert Strickland - now there's a classic high school story.

No doubt that "The Boz's" campaign was unparalleled in passion and dedication. What AHS did to him was inexcusable.
