Here’s The Guy You Should Vote For

by Mary Anne on November 4, 2008

Today is the day that we go to the polls and history will be made one way or the other. All I can say is I’m tired of the politicians on both sides. Tired of the attack ads, tired of the reporting and tired of all the bashing. So tired, in fact that I’d like to suggest a third party on this last day of our election cycle as a write in candidate. He’s smart, he’s caring and most importantly he is truthful. Sure he is too young by 25 years but I figure if he gets enough votes we can deal with that small issue later.

Announcing my candidate for President, Mr. C, who I had the good fortune to sit with tonight for an election eve fireside chat where he shared with me his vision and his plans to shape this country of ours going forward.

TSM: Mr. C, tell TSM readers about your platform.
Mr. C: I fight for freedom, equal rights, lower taxes and that’s about it.

TSM: How will you handle global warming?
Mr. C: I plan to design a way to make sure that smokestacks and pollution are a thing of the past. I want it to all stop right now. I say that the ice caps melting is very bad because it is making less and less space for penguins, polar bears and seals to have homes and that is just as important as us having homes.

TSM: What types of sustainable energy sources are you in favor of?
Mr. C: I am working forward so that we can have solar and wind powered cars and that kind of energy. I say fuels we could use would be non fossil fuels and work towards fuels like water and stuff.

TSM: How would you control America’s increasing dependence on foreign oil?
Mr. C: I say we need to cut the foreign oil because we have oil and we should have the right to use it instead of buying it from other countries. We could plunge us into an economic crisis by using too much foreign oil and by not having enough money to be the country we need to be.

TSM: How would you support small business?
Mr. C: Small business owners are just the same as big business and they deserve to be just treated equally. Because both are business owners and the only difference is how big the business is.

TSM: What would you do to control spending?
Mr. C: I say we need to cut certain prices because taxes are already high enough and we don’t need to pay even more just for the regular prices.

TSM: What is your position on the Atom Fusion debate?
Mr. C: Who’s Adam?

TSM: How do you plan to unite the country?
Mr. C: I plan to unite the country by saying that all states are exactly the same. Technically, it’s all one chunk of land, just there are borders and stuff.

TSM: Wait, we are talking about uniting the people of our country, how would you do that?
Mr. C: Uniting the people is part of my platform. Equal rights are deserved for every single person in America, not just for a certain part.

TSM: Along those same lines, how would you heal the battle scars of those who feel very passionately about one candidate or the other?
Mr. C: What does that mean?

TSM: Ok, some people like Obama, some people like McCain…how do you make them get along after all this is over?
Mr. C: I say that this is an equal race and you don’t have to go around saying “oh I like my guy better than your guy”. You just have to wait and see who the president is and if you don’t like him, just get over it and wait for another four years an then you can decide then.

TSM: Finish this statement for me “If kids ran the country….”
Mr. C: …the country would be in a more stable state because kids get along much better than adults because you don’t see kids killing eachother. And kids can understand politics too, you don’t have to be an adult to understand it. So if kids ran the country the country might be in a better economical state because kids would definitely make sure that everything would be preserved that they need. Kids really understand animals and kids know about a lot of stuff too. Kids kind of know more about stuff than the politicians do now.

TSM: Describe for me your perfect running mate
Mr. C: My perfect running mate is a person who is strong hearted and not afraid to admit what he likes and very smart and friendly.

TSM: But what if he’s a she?
Mr. C: Doesn’t matter if it’s a she as long as they are strong hearted and can go out and get something that they really think should happen. If they want something they should go out and get it and that’s all I want in a running mate.

TSM: If you could change one thing in America today what would it be?
Mr. C: The economic crisis.

TSM: Oh please, stop being such a politico.
Mr. C: I say that kids deserve a longer time to break at recess because doing that gives them more time to get connected and recess helps them do better in school by getting all the stress off.

So there you have it. If you are doing a little last minute soul searching on this election day or if you are just downright undecided still, I urge you to consider writing in Mr. C as your choice for the next President of the United States of America. He will do right by you, I swear it….or I’ll take his video games away for a month.

Please note that these opinions are soley those of Mr. C and were transcribed verbatim…he is just that smart.

Mr. C sounds like he’s got a good head on his shoulders. Good luck with that whole recess thing.

2 Casey November 4, 2008 at 6:58 am

I’m on my way to vote right now. Mr. C has really swayed my vote, I’m seriously considering writing him in. Who is his running mate?

3 jenboglass(steenky bee) November 4, 2008 at 7:26 am

Wow! I’ll write him in on my ballot. Is it a capital C or a lower case? I want to get it just right. I’m behind everything your smarty pants son is for, but I don’t believe him on one critical issue. I highly doubt he’d choose a female as a running mate. Everyone know girls have cooties. Boys at his age are keenly aware of this fact.

I loved this! So clever!

4 Mary Anne November 4, 2008 at 7:26 am

@Michele: Thanks, he is pretty level headed…if he doesn’t make it this time, he will re-focus his efforts on a more local level…like student council.

@Casey: He declines to comment on that for fear of making any of his best friends mad. I think you are just going to have to trust me on this one that I’ll take his video games away if he screws it up. Whoever he picks will also be in favor of longer recess as well so you can rest easy on that one.

5 Mary Anne November 4, 2008 at 7:27 am

@Steenky: Hey, is Henners available as a running mate? We might be able to make this work….

6 jazmin November 4, 2008 at 7:49 am

hes got my vote! im all for longer recess. i’d take that over recession any day

7 MommyNamedApril November 4, 2008 at 7:49 am

diggin’ your candidate :-)

8 goodfather November 4, 2008 at 8:05 am

I vote for Mr. C! I’m writing him in!!

That’s one smart kiddo you’ve got there :D .

9 Jim November 4, 2008 at 8:41 am

Do we have to write him in? He’s way smarter than the two we’ve got to choose from.

10 foradifferentkindofgirl (fadkog) November 4, 2008 at 8:45 am

He’s got a fantastic platform! Can I get my bumper stickers and yard signs now? :)

11 Cameron November 4, 2008 at 8:47 am

He’s got my vote. I didn’t see any political bantering at all in his interview, he believes what he says and he’s not pandering to both sides. Mr C ’08

12 Lisa November 4, 2008 at 9:33 am

yay! what a great candidate he makes.

13 HeatherPride November 4, 2008 at 9:39 am

Mr. C is brilliant and I look forward to voting for him in 2036!!

14 maggie, dammit November 4, 2008 at 9:47 am

Too late! I already voted. Guess I’ll have to settle for Obama…. ;)

15 Ann November 4, 2008 at 10:19 am

Quoted verbatim?!?
Wow!
I do agree on the recess issue. Longer recesses for everyone!

16 blissfully caffeinated November 4, 2008 at 10:45 am

Mr. C is wise beyond his years. I think now, instead of voting for Obama I will write in a vote for Mr. C. You guys can fight out the age thing later at the supreme court level.

17 Sprite's Keeper November 4, 2008 at 11:32 am

Crap! Sorry! I would’ve gotten you linked earlier but my Google reader didn’t update and I’m all “I wonder what Stiletto Mom is up to today, la de da de da, ACK! Spin!”
Love this kind of spin! If I hadn’t voted 2 weeks ago, Mr. C would have been my man. Come on! Double thumbs up and a cutie pie? I’m convinced! You’re linked!

18 Chris November 4, 2008 at 11:42 am

Awesome. Just awesome.

19 Octamom November 4, 2008 at 11:58 am

Okay, I’m thinking Mr C may have swung my vote–he can seal the deal if he can give us free french fries and ice cream on Fridays for the duration of his term. Deal?

Blessings!

20 bex November 4, 2008 at 12:59 pm

MAN! Damn early voting! Damn it to heck! Had I known Mr. C was running I wouldn’t have written in ‘Ralph Nader’ –

hey, did you stop stalking me? it’s been lonely at my blog, i thought maybe you had been taking some sort of anti-depressants or something and in a moment of clarity decided against stalking people. how sad…

21 Kate November 4, 2008 at 1:42 pm

I already cast my vote – but this post may have changed my mind… How cute would he look in the oval office?!?

22 Jennifer November 4, 2008 at 1:45 pm

How cute! He’s a smart one that Mr. C. He’d be adorable giving the state of the union address!

I already voted so I can’t write him in! :(

23 DC Urban Dad November 4, 2008 at 2:02 pm

Where has Mr. C been this whole time?

24 MIL November 4, 2008 at 3:24 pm

Oh my goodness, that is not just the sweetest child in the world, but the smartest!!! I am so sorry that I had already voted when I read this. He is definitely getting my vote next time!!!

25 DCD November 4, 2008 at 4:45 pm

Mr. C for 2012!!

(Only cause I think he might not make the write-in candidacy for this year.)

26 texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana November 4, 2008 at 5:13 pm

So cute. I would write him in if I hadn’t already voted…2012? Or my running mate in 2028?

27 sherendipity November 4, 2008 at 5:56 pm

I think you should clone him.

28 Sammanthia November 4, 2008 at 7:06 pm

Had I not already voted for David Beckham, I would TOTALLY vote for Mr. C! I’ll be looking for him on the ballot for the next election… tell me, does he need a PR person? Let me know.

29 apathy lounge November 4, 2008 at 7:19 pm

Equal rights? I’ll be right over.

30 Captain Dumbass November 4, 2008 at 10:49 pm

Better luck next time, Mr. C.

31 Anita Doberman November 5, 2008 at 11:49 am

Yeah! We know who is going to run in 2012? :)

32 East Coast Fan November 6, 2008 at 6:17 am

OMG. I’m in tears on the train for 2 reasons:
1: He is so bright and sooooo cute!

2. He is spot on and its pathetic that we can’t do what he says. It’s so simple even a grade schooler can do it… why can’t we?

I’ll vote for him in 30 years!

33 Gotchy November 7, 2008 at 1:08 pm

Mr C. you have my vote!

34 texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana November 7, 2008 at 7:09 pm

I am back! This time from Sprite’s Keeper. I am hoping your candidate wins next go around.
