Random Dude Who E-mailed Us Should Take Hillary’s Senate Seat

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

A delightfully insane person has e-mailed us and approximately 400 other tip or info lines asking politely if he can be Senator from New York. He wants to take over for two years until Chelsea Clinton is 30 and can rightfully claim her seat. You must read (skim) his full blog post about this. “Oh- I’m just the ‘strwaw man- so i’ll read the script, act the part, do the ‘show’, and let my handlers, and staff run things- its simpler that way,” he writes, “for 2 years- till chelsea clinton is 30, and can take over the show..” The commentary is interspersed among dozens of photos of celebrities and politicians.

    I never thought Al Franken would stoop this low.

  • mattbolt

    Really all that needs to be quoted from that schizophrenic nutbag’s rambling, incoherent post:

    “COOTER!! ( a slang name for a womans v- shaped you know what… giggle!!)”

  • SayItWithWookies

    Sounds like Wasilla mayoral material to me.

  • nurple

    Maybe it’s Art.

  • auntu

    This guy is from my hometown in Indiana so I can’t say I’m surprised by the craziness.

  • nurple

    This just in – replacement Senator will be Al D’Amato and Ed Koch wearing one comical, two-headed, four-legged blue suit.

  • p-Sludge ofTheElves

    W’s resume?

  • blinky_twinkie

    Oh. Mah. Gawd. If he said “giggle” one more time, I was going to pass out from a creepy-uncle case of the greatgoogliemooglies.

  • JohnnyMeatworth

    I <3 schizophrenia!

  • OffTheRecord

    Oh lord. I had managed to block the image of Rick Santorum in seersucker out of my brain. And now it is back.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    Holy hell! Did you see all the e-mail addresses he has listed at the bottom? He’s got a 5,000 person death-list AND he’s pro-second amendment.

    Lock your doors, editor-people.

  • Borat

    I’m no web-page thingy coder, but what’s up with all that gobbledy-gook that makes up the 80% of the page at the end? Various domains and email addresses? Is this guy some kind of Hillz luvin’ hacker?

  • marioninnyc

    oh great, another carpetbagger!

  • WadISay

    [re=188469]OffTheRecord[/re]: “Filling Rick Santorum’s seat…” The Horror.

  • blinky_twinkie

    [re=188472]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: That friggin’ list has GOT to be a violation of somebody’s privacy policy. I love the big black squares (his version of renditions, one assumes) blocking portions of the list.

  • V572625694

    [re=188472]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: Wait a minute, being pro-Second-Amendment doesn’t mean you’re a potential crazed gunman. Well, come to think of it, it pretty much does mean that, doesn’t it?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=188487]V572625694[/re]: Ya I was going to use the good Dr. HST as an example, but I think he completely disproves that there exists a Pro-Second Amendment-Non-Wingnut.

  • graceless

    Wasn’t this part of the deal when Rick Lazio took that dive?

  • johnbpt

    I say give him a shot. He sounds like exactly the kind of change-y team player that Barry needs watching his back in the Senate. In any event, he couldn’t be a bigger embarrassment than Chuck “Upchuck” Schumer.

  • donner_froh

    He does make one excellent point–neither he nor anyone else would be much worse and possibly even better than the current Senate–plus a few governors, maybe he doesn’t know the difference.

  • azw88

    Some are talking up BILL CLINTON to fill her seat…. the motto: Bill Clinton, bringing heterosexual intern sex scandal back to Washington!

  • edgydrifter

    [re=188491]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: I was going to offer myself as an example to the contrary, but considering I was bragging and cackling earlier about amassing my gargantuan mountain of archived pr0n I confess you’re probably right.

  • ella

    Those pictures are all hotlinked.

  • Rev. Juan MessyCan

    [re=188499]donner_froh[/re]: He also doesn’t know the difference between a noun and an adjective.

    (“santorum” is a noun, “santorum-slurping” is an adjective).

  • Rev. Juan MessyCan

    Damn- I had to fuck up my own punctuation!

  • wheelie

    Well he says he’s Irish, so I have to set all other considerations aside and say . . .

    I SUPPORT THIS BIZARRE INTERNET CANDIDATE for whatever he wants. I will also blow him, for $4 less* than my usual rate. Tiocaigh ár lá.

    *offer confined to weekend ending December 7. Client must be hygienic. All travel costs must be borne by client.

  • Heywood Floyd

    I like that he chose now to send out the email. He looked it over, thought about, and said, yeah, it’s ready. It is so ready.

  • ky-jellydonuts

    He couldn’t be less coherent than Robert Byrd. Why not?

  • Mojopo

    AHAHAHAAAAAAAAA! Oh, man I needed that. So look, I blogged about Hillary as SoS, and I am laughing like a little girl. Life is GOOD.
