Have Liberals Lost Their Mind?

Maybe we have. A homeowner in Northern Virginia took to a popular DC area parent forum:

We live in a fairly liberal part of town. Are putting house on market next week. Our next door neighbors, who we don’t know well, just put up a Trump sign-only one in the neighborhood. We are afraid this will scare off potential buyers. Do we ask neighbors to take sign down?

So pathetic a question. Imagine the horror of having to live next to a Trump supporter, the uncontrollable groping, the giant Wall to keep out ethnic looking neighbors, the constant coming and going of Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, and Rudy Giuliani. Probably best to get the Homeowners’ Association to write an Anti-Trump covenant. Nip this madness in the bud.


I Promise

If elected President to give up golf for the length of my term(s). Presidents deserve and need downtime, but symbolism matters, and playing golf is about as bad as it gets. At least for Democratic Presidents. People want leaders that are more like them, than different. Just practice your putting stroke and invite Boehner over to watch the US Open on television.

If elected to Congress to keep my privates private.

If elected Governor of New Jersey, to drive, not helicopter, to my children’s events.

If elected to Congress, not to advocate for abstinence education and then have an affair with one of my staffers.

If given a Nobel Prize and Oscar for my work publicizing the threat of global warming, to keep my monthly electricity bill under $1,200/month.

If running for the Republican nomination for President, not to call for a crackdown on illegal immigration and then use undocumented Guatemalans to tend to my lawn and tennis court.

If elected to Congress, as hard as it may be, to refrain from tickle fights with my male staffers.

If elected to Congress, to refrain from emailing photos of my shirtless self to any women I might meet on Craigslist.

Until then, however, I can’t promise any of those things.
