Jose Canseco's new year's resolution? "political office in the U.S. or canada"

Ed Brayton writes:


For some weird reason, Politico thinks that what Jose Canseco says about the fiscal cliff deal is news. It makes me feel bad for Patrick Gavin, the reporter who had to write about it. If I was a reporter for a news outlet and the editor told me to cover Jose Canseco’s tweets, I’d be pretty pissed off about it. Though this part is pretty funny:

Canseco’s comments, apparently, drummed up some interest in his own for for political office, which he accepted … sort of.

”Thank you for your support but i cant run for president because I was born in Cuba not hawaii,” said Canseco, but he added that one of his New Years resolutions was, “Get elected to a important political office in the U.S. or canada to help all people and governments with there problem.”


Canseco last year bashed Romney over twitter as "a joker who believes in bullshit".

3. Oh!



Thanks!

I just read some of what I already should have, ....... I think he'd do much better than Ford. Maybe he can get the 'citizen thing' worked out.
