!!URGENT: ELECTION ANNOUNCEMENT!!


But before my announcement, I would like to thank those of you who came forward to tell my wife that we were sleeping together. It was hard for her to hear, but not nearly as hard as the following will be for her...Because as you all know,

For every happy blogger, there is a disapproving spouse standing right behind them.

I love to write, and I love to entertain. And the fact that some of you like what I scribe fills my heart and girds my loins like little else. Which leads me to my announcement and the reason why my wife will not speak to me for the next 8 years...

I have decided to pursue the highest office in the land, I ask for your vote to make me the next President of these United States.

If you have not voted yet today, I ask you to cast your vote for Jay @ Halftime Lessons for President. If you have already voted, and if you believe in my ability to command this great nation, I ask you to return to the polls and ask to cast your vote again.

I have not come upon this decision lightly, mostly I was motivated by you, my readers, and then this morning, I received my first and only endorsement...

Alltop, confirmation that I kick ass


And then I knew. It is time. Time I use my blogging for good, and not for evil.

Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go find a smokin' hot running mate.

"For every happy blogger, there is a disapproving spouse standing right behind them."- ROFL! Ain't that the truth ;)

I didn't see you on the ballot. Perhaps I'll go back and pencil you in :)

Sorry Jay...I already voted. Maybe next time....or maybe not! (because I'm still holding a grudge that you didnt pick my awesome Led Zep boxed set)

Congrats to you on this momentous decision...and my condolences to your wife.
Maybe MamKat could be your running mate...she's smokin hot and she claims to make good banana bread. There's the answer to all our foreign policy.

I don't know what to say. we could have had our first lesbian President and first Smoking hot female VP. I say 2012 you are rocking it.

OK, who are you sleeping with to get THAT!? Totally cool new bling.

Early voted last week, sorry. One of the fringe benefits of being a Texas resident.

Am I out? No pun intended
