Wow, running for president is tough
I haven't even actually campaigned or anything and I'm worn out. I'll give the candidates their props on that. I find it a chore just throwing the garbage out after a hard day of not campaigning.

1. ... and based on this post alone, I get the impression that I'd rather vote for you.
:P

2. the Wetzelbill/Kurovski campaign has picked up steam as of late
You just don't see many mainstream candidates running for president who is not only a booze-swilling womanizer, but also has a liberal gay running mate. We're eclectic. That being said, I am an empty suit. :)

3. What about the issues that are important to me?
For instance, is your running mate cute, rich and/or single?

4. I don't know about rich
but I think he's probably the others.

That and I give out Ambassadorships like candy.

6. I've talked to my pop about this
(he's a doctor.. yeah I'm kinda a big deal..) and he suspected that some of the candidates are using pick me ups or other pharmaceuticals to be alert and awake. Apparently, coffee isn't the old standby anymore (as it stains the teeth); a lot of people are using stimulants of some sort (ritalin, adderol, concerta, etc), both young and old, and my dad says (whether or not it's true is debatable) he can see signs of its use in some candidates. Seeing as stimulants are rampant at my school, I would totally buy it.

I don't live within driving distance, however, once many many years ago, Wichita State was interested in me riding bulls for them. :)

13. rodeo team
I think it wasn't very big, probably along the lines of a rodeo club. I've never been near Kansas, though, haha. :) My only knowledge of Wichita has to do with BTK. Not exactly in depth stuff.

17. Ambassadorships?
Hmmmmm . . . you stated above that you give out Ambassadorships? I'll take one for the Caribbean. And thanks in advance.

P.S. - can't help with the pharmaceuticals but I make a mean cup of coffee!

:hi:

18. I do loves me some coffee
:) Yeah, pending Kurovski's approval I'll send you to the Caribbean. I think some places might have to have more than one ambassador, but I am a trailblazer like that. I don't even hide my cronyism. It's part of my folksy charm.

19. Folksy charm
seems like a winning platform. Thanks for the Ambassadorship, and here's your coffee.

And there's more where that came from (wink wink). ;)

21. I just woke up after a two week campaign nap,
and I'm so tired I'm headed back for another week of sleep.

Make no mistake: not campaigning is extremely challenging. It's akin to an induced coma.

22. I am so glad to see you - I was worried sort of.
Mainly about my own position within the administration, but of course about you, too. So much so that I just did a search for you. No I'm not stalking you - oh, wait, yes I am, but it's only out of love and stuff! :loveya:
