MP3 of the Week: "We Remember Mike Gravel" Edition
This Memorial Day I'd like to have a moment of silence for the campaign of Mike Gravel.
Yes, Mike ended his campaign yesterday when Bob Barr was nominated as the Libertarian candidate for President. What's that you say? "Libertarian?"
Gravel started out as a Democratic candidate, and even somehow ended up on Dear Mr. Supercomputers list of top three candidates (along with two other crazy guys).
He produced the greatest political ad of all time.
He hung out with Obama girl.
When he was excluded from some of the Democratic debates due to not meeting fundraising or polling requirements (had I known, I would have personally funded his campaign and faked the polling data, it would have been worth it to see him in more debates), he quit the Democratic party and ran for the Libertarian candidate. When he didn't get that, he announced his career was over.
So, moment of silence please.
