I have decided, after much consideration of the ins and outs, that I shall not, this year, seek the presidency of the United States.  I'm sure you're all disappointed but, as New Jersey Governor Chris Christy said yesterday, "now is not my time."

I think you should know that I have put in virtually no thought to running for president.  I have not discussed it with my wife or children or her children or my grandchildren or her grandchildren.  Neither have I mentioned it to my brother or his children (my nieces and nephews) or any of their children.

None of my friends have been consulted about this great decision.  I don't have a pastor but if I did I can assure you that he would not have been consulted either.

Nor would my psychiatrist, if I had one.  Nor any of my doctors, of which I have too many.

No, this has been totally my decision, reached after I stopped laughing when I just read that Sarah Palin has decided that she won't run for president in 2012 either.

Needless to say, I am still happy to accept any monetary donations that my friends, families and followers would care to send me.

Gosh darn it, this is shaping up to be quite a politicial season, isn't it?

Darn. I was looking forward to seeing you skewered on Saturday Night Live a la Sarah Palin. "I can see Vegas from my house!" ;)

Smart enough to duck the whole idea...

LOL at Lowandslow - that was a good one.

As usual, you are a nut. Must be giddy from the Dbacks win last night :)

Scott - Those people just aren't fair!

LittleRuss - Hey! A grandchild speaks up! Thank you!

Steve - That made me think of a refrain from an old song - "Just send my mail . . . to the Tijuana jail."

Fijufic - Isn't it nice to know that SOMEONE is?

Dana - One more W and we can move on! Maybe Kirk Gibson should run for prexy!

I am relieved. You don't need that kind of stress, messing up your leisure time.

Thank you Meggie, I appreciate your concern.
