Carl Weathers for Governor?

A note from our executive director, David Almasi:

Is Carl Weathers interested in running for governor?

Since the political parties are still having trouble recruiting candidates for the 2004 elections, the leaders of both parties might consult the cast of the 1987 movies Predator and The Running Man. So far, alumni Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura have been elected governors.

Bill Duke of Predator may be out since he’s currently co-starring on the show Karen Sisco, but, like Mary Carey in California, former porn star Sonny Landham is probably available. In The Running Man, the parties have a wide range of famous names to choose from, including Richard Dawson (Family Feud & Hogan’s Heroes), football great Jim Brown, Yaphet Kotto (Homicide) and musician/actors Mick Fleetwood and Dweezil Zappa.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
