Putting the Whig on...

Putting the Whig on... the ballot.  It's the plan!

An e-mail from the Modern Whigs on Monday, May 18th says they will announce thier first ever candidate (since the 1800's) at their on-line national meeting on Tuesday, May 19th.

The e-mail says, "Representatives from Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nevada, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and overseas will be in attendance..."

We'll see who gets the first Whig nod.

More Green....

More Green... on your ballots in 2009.  

The May 2009 Green Party newsletter says Greens have filed to run for 119 offices.  The letters says this compares with,  "In 2005, 69 candidates had declared their run by the middle of May.  In 2007, that number was 74."  The newsletter says 119 candidates is a record for the Greens.

The newsletter continues to ask people to declair their candidacy for a local offices in 2009 and maybe start planning for 2010 races.


It's a good thing I'm not the President...

It's a good thing I'm not the President... that's the word from Jesse Ventura on ABC's "The View" Monday.

The former Independent Governor of Minnesota told the ladies from "The View" that if he were President he would prosecute the people who ordered and did waterboarding.

He said Republicans and Democrats are both involved in the waterboarding and that is why the new controversy over waterboarding will go nowhere.

Jesse Ventura said at the Ron Paul "Rally for the Republic" in 2008 that he would consider running for President in 2012 if the was a ground swell for him to run and he though he could win.

Is the ground starting to "swell"?
