I May Run

POP is in the Kitchen

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, May 19, 2019. I have given the bugs the day off. I am at the stove preparing Roasted Veggie Egg White Omelettes for all of us. I am adding Bloody Mary's to the meal to make up for the egg whites. I have to admit that I am intrigued by the number of Democratic hopefuls who want to occupy the Oval Office. They are pursuing their dream despite obvious problems. It is all so inspiring! I am thinking of jumping into the ring. Please join me for breakfast this morning. I'd like to share my thoughts on the subject of the race for the presidency. Please hurry over. I'm already on my third Bloody and I'd like to be coherent when I discuss my run. Come to think of it, being coherent is not really necessary.

Going for the Gold

Thanks so much for coming to the breakfast table this morning. I am seriously considering running for the presidency. The ever expanding Democratic list of hopefuls has inspired me. The group has assured me by their mere presence that I don't need any specific talent to consider a run. I studied the current front runner Joe Biden and came away realizing that I can get up in front of a group of people and lie like a pro. When I smear the Trump administration for separating children from their parents at the border, I won't have to worry that anyone will realize that it was Obama and Joe who did the deed. If Uncle Joe can say whatever comes into his head, I can too. The man is inspirational.

If I make a run, I don't have to concern myself with dismal turnouts at my appearances. Mayor Di Blasio gets a few people in the crowd when he speaks. The fact that most of them are Trump supporters hasn't deterred him. I won't let anything stop me either. Di Blasio has failed NewYork City in an epic way. Those who keep the city humming with their tax dollars are fleeing for friendlier shores. Di Blasio is to be admired for his consistent disdain for the people of New York. He marches on to the White House despite obvious problems. If he can do it, so can I.

Time for Women

This may be a perfect time to run. Hillary didn't make it to the White House, but perhaps another woman can. That woman could be me. Just look at Kisrten Gillibrand, the junior United States Senator from New York. The fact that her father and stepmother are embroiled in a hideous sex scandal involving a cult that traffics underage girls is not a problem for her. The trial is ongoing in New York City. It involves the cult known as NXIVM. It's an ugly business, but Kirsten is moving along without a care in the world. She doesn't seem worried about her connection to this nightmare. I think she's amazing in her resolve. My run for the presidency is looking better and better. I don't have her baggage, so that's a plus for me.

Let's not forget Kamala Harris. She is making a run for the presidency touting her far left looney ideas as credentials for the office. She has resolved to raise incomes for working class families by giving them $500 a month. Wow, that ought to change lives. I could give everyone $600 a month. Kamala has inspired my campaign, and I thank her for that.

I have to mention Amy Klobuchar. She has made me realize that treating people who work for me fairly is not important. I am also free to eat lunch with my comb. Thank you, Amy.

Hats off to Elizabeth Warren who either is or is not of Indian heritage. Her ability to drink a beer straight from the bottle makes her a people person, and I like that. Should I run for the presidency, I have to remember to chug a beer from time to time while adorning myself with war paint and feathers. If she can do it, so can I.

I can wrap up the female contingency by mentioning another hopeful, Marianne Williamson. She is an author, a lecturer and an activist. Now she wants to be president. Well, so do I Marianne, so move aside.

Male Inspirations

Beto O'Rourke is a true male inspiration. I know I can flail my arms around like Beto. People seem to like that. I don't have to worry about my past, because Beto has a DWI to his credit. He also paid his own company $40,000 from his political contributions between 2014 and 2015. Nobody seems to care about that, so what do I have do worry about? Once I get enough contributions together I can buy myself a new Mercedes. The expense will be legitimate. I need to get around somehow and it's a good, reliable car.

Bernie Sanders is a true inspiration. He has taught me how to appeal to millennials. All I have to do is promise to take care of them just like Mommy and Daddy. They are a delicate bunch, and if I am to win I must appeal to their lack of intelligence and their need for cuddling. I learned this from the best. Thank you, Bernie.

Cory Booker has taught me a great deal about a possible run for the White House. I may become a vegan and insist that everyone do the same thing. I think I will support raising the minimum wage and I will guarantee everyone a job. That's the least the government should do. Booker wants to legislate the income gap away by creating a savings account for every child that could grow to as much as $46,000 by their 18th birthday. What a guy! What a plan! All I have to do is promise every child a bank account of $100,000 by the time they are eighteen years old. Pennsylvania Avenue, here I come!

Let us not forget to mention Pete Buttigieg, the 37 year old mayor from South Bend, Indiana. He is doing quite well in the polls. If he wins the presidency he would become the first openly gay United Staes president in history. That is probably important. He wants healthcare to become single payor, he loves the Green New Deal, he wants to take care of all immigrants and he wants to stick it to people who actually earn money by taxing them like crazy. He likes the idea of universal basic income. If he can run on a platform like this, surely there is a place for me.

The Rest of the Crowd

I have to get busy on my campaign, so I cannot delve too deeply into the rest of the growing field of candidates. Perhaps a simple mention will do the job. Good luck to Michael Bennet, Steve Bullock, Julian Castro, John Delaney, Tulsi Gabbard, Mike Gravel, John Hickenlooper, Jay Inslee, Tim Ryan, Seth Moutan, Eric Swawell, Andrew Yang, and Wayne Messam. My apologies to anyone out there who I failed to mention. All of these potential nominees prove that anyone can run for the presidency, even me.

Pop's Song

If I throw my hat in the ring

Will you join me

In the ring?

      Dear Denise,

      We need people who want to do their jobs and not worry about keeping theirs. Once most of those in Congress get elected, they forget about those that put them in office. Our Congress does nothing at all, and that is a crime.

      Dear friend,

      It is time for women to make their voices heard. And apparently there aren't any special educational or intelligence requirements anymore but I do hope you don't "lie like a pro" when we so dearly need people to make a difference on Capitol Hill. Be someone who stands out and not someone who blends in with all the rest of the liars and backbiters. Someone who stands for what is right and for the little people who have little or no voice. Someone who defends the helpless and the struggling. That's what we need more than anything else, don't you think?

      Blessings,

      Denise

      Good Morning yves,

      The Dems are so desperate now that they are turning on one another. It's about time that their facade of righteous indignation starts to crumble. As for the idiots who believe all the lies, well they are idiots and nothing can be done about it. I am quite confident that Trump will never take his victory for granted, and will do everything possible to see that it happens. I'll meet you at the Inn.

      Pop.....Yes, sometimes we laugh to keep from crying. The problem is that when Biden claims credit for our rousing economy, his followers actually believe him. Biden and all the presidential hopefuls, for that matter, know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it really doesn't matter what they say or how much they lie. They can make any claim whatsoever and get away with it. They haven't any standards to meet these days. None.

      The difference with Trump is that he made promises, and he kept his promises. He continues to do so. Big, huge difference.

      And so, we cannot take Trump's victory for granted. Those on the other side don't worry too much about facts. I say this with all due respect to your followers from the other side, but there comes a time when you just have to call out the nonsense, which you and the beloved bugs do with aplomb.

      As for the breakfasts and Bloody Mary's, not to worry, those of us on the Right, as you know, are more than happy to pay. Keep up the good work, Pop! Say hello to Harlotte for me. ;)

      Dear Yves,

      The things I wrote about would really give me a belly laugh if they weren't true. I'll ask Harlotte about taking the number 2 spot. The Bloody Marys and the breakfasts will continue. College students can rest easily knowing that they will owe not a thing in tuition. It is going to be a free-for-all lovelfest. I'll probably win! See you at the Inn.

      Pop....I'll only vote for you if you make Harlotte your running mate. Sorry, but the boy bugs just won't do. After all, diversity is key: A Pop and a bug. It's a winning ticket!

      There's only one problem. Once you're elected, who's going to supply all the free Sunday breakfasts, Bloody Mary's and Cholocate martini's, when you're out and about, solving one crisis after the other?

      Oh right...almost forgot...free breakfasts and drinks for all. It's probably included in the plan. Whew! That was a close one. I almost wobbled, but now I'm ready to cast my vote at the polls in 2020. Pop for Pres. It has a nice ring.

      BTW, all the Dems shenanigans you mentioned in this article really did make me laugh out loud. Some of your best work yet! I intend to come back to this article anytime I need a good laugh.

      Dear ab,

      The tables are all round in order to promote good conversation. I am thrilled that you have signed on. Your slogan is already impressing the voters!

      Definitely Pop, in a heartbeat!

      Is the Inn's breakfast table round? We could have some great discussions and do some creative strategizing....not that it will require anything like that with the crowd you'd be running with! ;)

      Good Morning ab,

      I love your slogan. It speaks the truth and will resonate with the voting public. Thank you. See you at the Inn. Would you consider signing on to write some speeches for me?

      Good Morning Paula,

      Thanks so much for your ardent support. Would you consider being my campaign manager? All you have to do is load up a good moving bar and keep me posted about what the 24 candidates are groaning on about. See you at the Inn. I am up to 3 votes!

      Good Morning Pamela,

      The Democratic field is filled with socialists, fake socialists and morons. If they cared about our nation they would be talking about fixing immigration now. They would be talking about real problems, instead of pretending that President Trump is a failed president. They are running against success, and in the end the president will be re-elected. See you at the Inn, and thanks for your support. I now have two votes!

      Smear, spin, flail, promise.....repeat!

      Sounds like a winning campaign strategy to me.

      Go Pop, Go Pop, Go Pop!

      OK!! My worries are over. Knowing we'll have pop for POTUS is the very best news in months! It's in the bag, girlfriend! Who would not vote for you!? Anyone who has run an INN for so many years, can surely run our country! Just that alone makes you much more qualified than any of the others! You can slam down more Bloody Marys than Warren's silly beers and dance around on your own tables, acting like a lunatic...beyond any dance Beto does!

      So, it's settled. "POP FOR PREZ 2020!!"

      I just knew this would be a good day!

      The 23 people running for the democratic presidential candidate make my head spin! There are so many socialist ideas that is concerning. How come we do not have good psychiatric care for our vets, yet they want to pay for immigrants to go to school? I will support you for president! We'll talk at the inn.

      Go for it, Pop! I'll vote for you. At least I know you haven't been bought by any special interest groups. See you in the voting booth!
