Some avid McBoners may remember when, back in dying, gasping, twitching last days of the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Rice regime, I threw McBone's weight behind the Mike Gravel presidential campaign. Well, I'm not sure if our support hurt or helped Senator Gravel's chances, but it looks like word got out after all.
While I can't take credit for coining the "Give 'em hell, Mike Gravel" slogan, I am proud that the Las Vegas Review Journal not only quoted us, but spread our anti-mayonnaise agenda to thousands of readers.
And why did I support Mike Gravel in the first place, you wonder? Trust me it's not because I'm daft. I supported Gravel because, after 8 years of undiluted evil in the White House, I was ready for someone who was unequivocal about:
Ending the war in Iraq
Fighting climate change
Supporting gay marriage
Giving the people a say when it comes to legislation
Getting minorities out of prisons and into the workforce
Hey, Mike Gravel, if you ever run for president again, I will support you. You have my vote, sir, and my undying respect. Keep on givin' 'em hell, Mike Gravel!
