We’re all big fans of Mike Rowe (as is evident by all of these posts about him), and a lot of fans want him to run for President. Half as a joke, half as response to the dumbassery that we so often hear from the people who are actually running.
He says no, but his dog will run. Ok, kind of…
Naturally, I’m flattered – deeply. But aside from my conspicuous lack of experience, (I can barely keep a TV show on the air,) I’m afraid I lack the temperament for elected office. My dog on the other hand, is not only more suited for the role, he is, according to the most recent polls – more popular than his master, and therefor, far more electable. So, I would be willing – under Freddy’s leadership and guidance – to serve as his Vice President, and in that regard, your humble servant.
To be entirely transparent, I doubt we’ll win. Freddy’s platform is breathtakingly self-absorbed, and his current worldview somewhere between Trump’s and Bullworth’s. But at least I understand it, and for that reason alone, I can support it. As for the garments themselves, I think it’s safe to say that no finer collectible will ever appear on this page. And for the world-weary observer of our precarious political process, I can think of no more appropriate Christmas present.

You know, the jobs that leftists hate. Oh sure, they’ll say that they don’t hate those jobs. Usually when pandering to “the working class,” on some attempt to convince them that they’re the backbone of society… and required to vote Democrat.
Also, if you don’t the Union will fit you with some nice concrete shoes. Still a size twelve, are we?
But then they’ll turn around and demand that college tuition be free, because the only way the United States can advance as a society, is with a bunch of kids with doctorate’s in Philosophy. Remember how furious they got with Marco Rubio when he said that we need more “welders than philosophers”? In particular, leftist philosophers who wanted to pretend as though their job was of particular benefit to society…
This is why the country needs Mike Rowe.
