preppy. politicos.

April 29, 2010

Recently at the Cupcakes and Cocktails event on Newbury St., my liberal friend CP (if you can’t make peace over cupcakes, where can you?) made the observation that my political views, much like many other things in my life, are an anomaly. Having grown up in a small, southern town (and in a Catholic family), my conservative roots have been in place for decades.

However, as I transition from the twilight of my youth to quasi-adulthood, my political views can be summed up in the following: I don’t care what you do, who you marry, or how you are paying for healthcare.. as long as you leave me and my hard earned money out of it. And you’re generally not an IDIOT (no crying for a bailout when you buy a home you clearly can’t afford). So that’s kinda libertarian, but I really don’t want to move to Verhampshire and live in the bush and not shave my legs to embrace the affiliation.

So after some big think tanking (the booze helped), we came up with this. This ain’t your average Libertarian or Conservative Party.. this conservative libertarianism is a revolution:

PREPPY LIBERTARIANS

We focus primarily on fair taxes, personal accountability and seersucker. Based on one-day feedback via Twitter, the movement is strong.

Pretty sure the Tea Party is regretting not recruiting me to be their mascot/chairperson.

I’m a PC! And I’m in Times Square!

My PC spot says ‘I’m a PC.. and I do the Heisman.’ (please note the Heisman trophy behind me)

My PC profile on the Windows page.

Check out the banner ads too.

Can’t say it was ever a goal to have my face displayed on Times Square, but let’s check that one off the to-do list anyway..

CP: oh.my.god.
CP: i think being in times square is definitely on the path to world domination
CP: so you should just layer it into the plan
CP: we can use that for campaign ads later

DP: got my absentee ballot yesterday
DP: vote for me!!
CP: since i vote in MD i might write you in
CP: because i think obama is pretty safe there

Okay, who thought b-school was a good idea?

Random updates while I have a second to breathe:

CP has put me in her Fave 5. Somehow, she thinks I must be a drunk or something, I have no idea where she gets that impression: “Your icon for myfaves is a frothy mug of beer. hahahahaha!”

First Clambake ever. I’m soooo New England. Check out what I had for lunch:

Skybil’s advice: “WOW! Don’t suck the heads, you need to work up to that!”
Also, her opinion of the Boston Creme Pie we had for dessert: “Two words: Over rated!” (we thinks someone is jealous)

My second is up, back to work..


elect. me!

How To Run for President
Before the campaign trail, the paper trail.

And, all the forms:
FEC Reporting Forms

Thanks to Jared for the links. CP and I have a few years to prepare our paperwork for our 2020 election. (Why 2020? ‘Cause there’s that silly rule of a 35 years of age minimum – We’ll be mature old enough by then).

And, I already have a podium appearance. Sadly, I can’t locate the picture of me (devoted intern) and good ole Jesse at the moment. But if you’re in Virginia it’s hanging on the wall of my parents’ house, so stop on by.

house. party.

So CP and I might be the only people who would actually admit to playing fantasy Congress, but hey, it’ll be good training for the 2020 Election.

Here’s the deal:
