Too Late to Run for Governor?

If I’m a Californian, I’m not too excited about the two gubernatorial choices jockeying for my November vote.  Jerry Brown?  More like Jerry Boring.  Meg Whitman?  Uh… you invented eBay, Meg, not the actual internet (Al Gore did that), so don’t be so proud of yourself.

To be honest, I don’t think most Californians even know there’s an impending gubernatorial race going on.  With so many distractions, like the Kardashians and Alex Smith and The Hills… when does one have time to care about politics?

You needn’t worry, California.  Your man — though barely known just a few weeks ago — is Cody Ross.

Trust me.

After being fed to the waiver wire in August, Ross was reluctantly picked up by the Giants; his timely bat and quiet confidence has since turned into the bargain of the year.

He banged one out against Derek Lowe to break up a no-hitter in the NLDS.

He banged TWO out against Roy Halladay in Game One of the NLCS.

He banged ANOTHER out against Roy Oswalt in Game Two of the NLCS.

That’s a lot of friggin’ bangin’…

And for a state that’s known to bang, I think Cody Ross should get a shot.

Hate me ‘cuz I think outside the box (and occasionally use tired cliches), just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Sue — Much appreciated. I’ll see what I can do with Ross.
    Peter — I trust you used a nice word in those asterisks.

    You’re right about Cody Ross. He should definitely run for something out here. What a hero he turned out to be. A bargain too. But you’re wrong about no one caring about the actual election. It’s a dog fight (and cat fight), and the TV ads are on every six seconds. Between Brown/ Whitman and Boxer/ Fiorina, it’s crazy time.

    Jane — Good to know that Californians are aware this time around. I lived there during the Gray Davis days and half of my friends didn’t even know who Gray Davis was. Maybe that’s more a reflection of my friends rather than my statesmen. Hmm. Cody for Gov!

    i think you should feel bad for us Jeff! The candidates we have to choose from is just…. well I’d understand if people chose not to vote. We have to choose the lesser of two evils. blehhh speaking of that! I have to register to vote! :O

    Cody Ross is something else. What a stud! And to think… he was this close to being a rodeo clown 😛

    Prince — Nice Zod reference to liven things up 😉
    Mimi — Oh, I feel your pain. No worries there. But I don’t envy it. Go register!
