As exhibited by our quick look at the candidates, this presidential field is beyond weak. The Prez has left himself surprisingly vulnerable to this mashed-up bag of GOP disasters. It’s enough to make a political junky half-excited for what promises to be a most interesting election year while making me half-depressed to endure what is sure to be a mountain of bullshit rhetoric.
So I figured, ‘What the hell? We, the United States of America, deserve better. And I’m sick of bitching about it. It’s time for action!”
Which is where Manifesto comes in.
If you didn’t know already, I run a little basement bar in Kansas City. We have a pretty devout Facebook following, largely due to the ridiculousness of our status updates. The bar itself is a full-fledged, attention-to-detail-oriented cocktail bar that, at first glance, delicately dances on the fence of snooty. But we do our best to remind people that we are just a bunch of people inviting some friends over to their bar to have a good time. And Facebook, in a weird way, allows us to keep things light.
So the other day, somewhat out of frustration, I announced on the Manifesto Facebook page that we, Manifesto, would be running for President of the United States of America. And so far, it’s gotten off to a great start.
First things first (especially in this modern world of politics), we realized we needed a Super-PAC to take on the Mitt Romney machine. So the Association to Stop Sobriety, also known as ASS-PAC, was born. Not to mention that this fits in nicely with the War on Sobriety we’ve been waging in the basement for a few years now. And hopefully with some cajoling, we’ll find someone to run the thing.
Well, the race is on. And do yourself a favor and vote for Manifesto in 2012!
