Cat-Scratch Politics

You know, sometimes you get back from vacation, and it's a little hard to get back into the swing of things. Somehow, Rove's resignation isn't as all-fired important as it would have been the week before, and Iowa polling seems a tad less sexy than it once was.

When that happens, you can only pray to be inspired like this:
For all of his wild-man antics, the politically conservative Nugent is talking about following in the footsteps of celebrities such as actor Arnold Schwarzenegger or wrestler Jesse Ventura, who won gubernatorial races.

"That would be beautiful," Nugent said when asked if he would run for governor of Michigan in 2010. "I have threatened to do so and I was sincere."
I think he'd probably have to tone down his rhetoric before a run. Although the Real Tree uniform and preoccupation with firearms and electric guitars couldn't hurt, could they?
