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.
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!
