Not THAT Libby Mitchell*

Lately, a lot of people have been asking me if I am running for Governor of Maine. At first, I assumed that they were encouraging me to run. After all, Maine hasn't been that cool lately, and I could definitely help them out in that department. I was actually getting excited about it, thinking of how I would start saying "ayuh" in every sentence and get the state legislature to change Maine's state slogan to "more than America's mitten." I even considered rethinking my stance on lobsters (I think they are large sea lice), and then I learned that people weren't talking about me running for Governor of Maine, but rather this Libby Mitchell running instead. Yeah, I know, bogus.

Not Me.

I am trying to take it all in stride though, and have decided, in my own way, to support the Libby Mitchell for Governor campaign. No, I am not thinking of soliciting campaign contributions, although I will be happy to accept any cash you want to send my way for non-political purposes. Instead, I will be sending good thoughts, and encouraging anyone who can vote in Maine to vote for Libby Mitchell. But not me, the one running. I don't want them to write my name in on the ballot, because that would be confusing. Of course, Maine might just count those votes for the candidate Libby Mitchell, since they probably don't know I exist, so that could probably help her. Unless they start reading this blog. Then they might start counting votes for that Libby Mitchell as votes for me, because I am that fabulous and truly hilarious. And who wouldn't want those traits in a Governor?

Holy shit, I could be Governor of Maine. Ayuh!

*My name is Libby Mitchell, and I do not approve this message.

She's so not pretty enough to be Governor! You need to move to Maine IMMEDIATELY and run against her!

Good clams and lobster there. Live in the more southern section though otherwise it's kind of like Northern Exposure.

Not seeing you in L.L. Bean, but that's just me.

I've always wanted to visit Maine but never have. I've gotten as far as New Hampshire.

But if you were the gov. you could send a jet plane down here to pick me and all these kids up and then put us up in a fancy hotel and get me $25,000 worth of new clothes.

Wait. I said that wrong.

I think you would be a great Governor! Meg could be the First Kid! How cool!

Badass Geek said...

Yeah. Maine needs a better governor than the one we have now.

Being a life-long resident of Maine, I'd totally vote for you. I'll write your name in on the ballot.

Summer said...

I completely agree with Jules. If I lived in Maine, I'd vote for you.

Maine is kinda cool. And I love me some sea lice. But those are some big ass buttons on her little jacket there. Not so sure how I feel about that.

I would vote for you for governor of Maine. Of course, I would have to move, but so would you.

How wild is that? My husband has a very common name, and there is a popular rapper with the same name. I've lost count of how many times it stops people dead in there tracks when he tells them his name, and you know exactly what they're thinking.
