Howdy friends and neighbors.  Well, here it is!  My official endorsement for the democratic presidential primary race!  I hereby fully endorse Hillary Rotten Clinton for the democratic nominee.  Hang on a minute, I haven’t flipped my lid, I just decided it was time to get involved in the primary.  Also, I’ve just returned from a meeting with my newly formed political action committee and in a 5 to 1 vote we decided to give the New York Senator the nod.  My new P.A.C.C.S.

It’s good to have my boots back on red dirt as I decompress from the high pressure of the vortex of capital hill. I have never seen so much concrete and limestone in one place. Overall, the entire trip was very good but I’m not sure we actually got any questions answered.
