In one of those interesting coincidences, the dude who executed a prank call on Gov. Scott Walker (R, WI) by pretending to be one of the billionaire Koch brothers (HEY, they inherited that money fair and square)--details here--lives in the Congressional district of that dude who recently resigned very quickly after getting busted cruising Craiglist for hook-ups (apparently he was looking for trannies too, details here). So dude, now called Ian Murphy (his actual name) is running for the open seat and brings such an amazing tone to the race, I've decided to hopeful for humanity, for at least the next 20 minutes.
His campaign website is MurphyCanHasCongress, and here's his first campaign video:
I was pleased to read his explanation of his qualifications.
Well, I’m an art school dropout who’s done some drifting both geographically and career-wise. I’ve worked as a landscaper, cashier, shopping cart pusher, butcher’s assistant, janitor, cow-milker, milkshake engineer, building manager, drywall installer, plumber, carpenter, painter, illustrator, door-to-door salesman, dish washer, paperboy, paperman, and some other illustrious gigs.
The narrative is bound to be that I’m not qualified to serve in Congress. Bullshit. I’m a blue-collar guy from Buffalo. I have commonsense and authenticity on my side. I’m a real guy who won’t sell you out for a quick buck. And I’ll fight like a cornered wolverine to make the voice of the people heard.
All his platforms are excellent (here), and he's officially the first candidate to declare, unequivocally, his pro-adorable puppy stance. And he's coming down hard on others:
That Annoying Guy at Work
What’s that guy’s name? You know, the one who chews with his mouth open and steals your yogurt…Chuck? Chip? Chaz? Whatever, that’s not important. I hate that guy, and when I’m elected to Congress, he will feel my wrath!
Good luck dude! Rock on!
