step right up and spin the wheel!

Please, go send Meryl some love or chicken soup or stir up some controversy on her behalf. Do it for the children(tm).

step right up and spin the wheel!

Tom Galisano - who as of 8:49 am (EST) is running for governor of New York, announced that he will hold a Very Special Press Conference at 6:28 p.m. today.

The Rochester billionaire would not tip his hand, but his advisers said they were asked to prepare three scripts: one in which he stayed in the race against Gov. George Pataki and McCall, one in which he dropped out and offered his support to McCall, and a third in which he dropped out without endorsing anyone. By afternoon the advisers said they would film two scripts, but would not say what they were.

"I am a candidate for governor for the state, I have been for seven months, I put a lot of effort into it, but there will be a special broadcast tomorrow afternoon at 6:28 p.m.," Golisano said at the outset of a debate on WNBC-TV with McCall yesterday morning in Manhattan. "Everybody tune in at 6:28 tomorrow afternoon." He said to reporters: "If I told you now, it wouldn't be any fun tomorrow."

Fun for whom? For this pompous rich man who is obviously getting off on toying with the public? If we're talking fun, I want to see dancing zebras and high wire acts. Maybe throw in a midget comedian and celebrity look-alike contest.

Fun would not entail dropping Golisano dropping out of the race two days before the election in an effort to give the Democrat party a chance to not appear third on the ballots in the next presidential election. Of course, it would be fun if Golisano wore a funny hat and a clown suit while making the annoucement. Or if he had Hillary tied to the "Wheel of Democracy" and Pataki got to throw Ginsu knives at her while constituents lined up to spin the wheel around.

I wonder if this Very Special Fun Filled Press Conference could be any more "fun" than that dream I had the other day where Golisano legalized marijuana and prostitution.

Probably not.


I tend to be suspicious of anyone who throws away over 50 million of his own money in the effort to get himself elected. I can think of so many other ways to spend that money.

At 6:28pm, I'll be watching the paint dry in my kitchen.

He is probably holding out for somthing for his endorsment...

As someone who seems to have an innate ability to piss people off, I will add you to my blogroll as an act of defiance in the face of those pucker-butted fuckwits who dropped you.

At least I will as soon as I figure out how to do it in Movable Type without erasing my entire site.

Chin up, darlin'!

I can't take another 4 years of my mother bitching about how Pataki is assraping BOCES programs and school districts.

I don't care who wins, as long as it's not him.
