Paco announces bid for presidency

Just doin' my, er, patriotic duty.

I'm thinking of using these slogans (each one will, of course, have the preamble, "Vote for Paco"):
He'll treat your money like it's his own.

Isn't it time for a president whose head doesn't look like a soup tureen?

Born in the USA (certified copy of birth certificate available on request)

He'll sit around doing nothing for half the current presidential salary

He'll never bow to foreign potentates (although he may pistol whip them if they piss him off)
Let's get these posters up, pronto!



Update: I receive my first big endorsement!

Update II: Nothing like a little opposition to get some free publicity.

Update III: The momentum builds!

Update IV: Another endorsement!

Mr. Bingley said...

You've got my full support.

RebeccaH said...

You've got my vote, Mr. Paco sir. In fact, the minions are already busy designing a logo for the Office of President Elect.

Paco said...

Here's my platform: I'm in the race to stay unless and until I raise a million dollars.

Mr. Bingley said...

Paco, I wouldn't let them get you out of the race for anything less than 5 million.

JeffS said...

Go for 10 million, Paco, and maybe you can take your minions out for burgers and fries!

Remember, folks: vote early, vote often! It's the Democrats' process.

Yojimbo said...

Yes, early and often is what democracy looks like.

You realize that his is going to cause a serious dimunition in my future flows into the "Mr. Bingley For Just About Everything" campaign fund. Are you prepared for the reverberations resulting from that?

Paco said...

YoJ: Pony up, dude. It's for the children.

Have you considered federalizing the civil service unions nationwide to bring them under the Uniform Code of Military Justice?

progressive white liberal said...

But what about the Delta smelt?! Won't SOMEBODY think about the Delta Smelt?!

richard mcenroe said...

Do you support the right to arm bears in case they meet Greens in the woods?

JeffS said...

Richard, I know at least one colonel that would LOVE that idea.

JeffS said...

Say rather, tie the arms of Greens in the woods, and make sure they meet bears.

Merilyn said...

Please sir, can Australians vote for you to?
If so you have my vote.

Agnes B Bullock said...

where do i send my donation

mojo said...

Dibs on DCI!

Paco said...

Merilyn: Unfortunately, as an Australian, you cannot vote in a U.S. election (unless, perhaps, you register as a Democrat). Your money, however, is as good as anybody else's. In fact, my yacht, the Jolly Codger, is currently berthed in Sydney, so feel free to send a chest of gold aboard.

Agnes: Donations can be sent to:

Paco Charitable Trust c/o
Paco Financial Services
Cayman Islands

Steve Burri said...

Paco's Cheesehead Coalition is already Preppin' Paco for Presidential Politickin'.

RebeccaH said...

At this point, I would like to submit my application for Secretary of the Exchequer. I'm sure Wronwright will second my nomination.

Uh... Wronwright?

thefrollickingmole said...

"Vote for Paco"

: Or well make it a Jeb Bush/ Hillary Clinton election

: And see washington run by serious men in fedoras again

: Technicaly the charges were never proven.

: and trade the black hellicopters for packards.

Paco said...

Frollicking: First rate suggestions!

Nashville Beat said...

Merilyn,

Don't be too sure that you can't vote. During the last presidential election, I was accosted by two college students working for Acorn who urged me to register to vote as a Democrat. Because I was on my way to a meeting, and with our friend Tim in mind, I affected an Aussie accent and told them I could not as I was not a U.S. citizen. They smiled and said, "Oh, that's all right. Where do you live?" If I had not been late, I would have loved to find out where that conversation would have gone.

Paco said...

Nashville Beat: "Australian Democrats for Paco". I love it!

Merilyn said...

Paco, how did you find out about the chest of gold that Wronwright asked me to mind for him?
If Nashville is correct, there could be a way around this so we here in Australia can vote for you..........

bruce said...

In like a needle, out like a plow!

Yes, gonna register me as a Dem to vote Paco. From way south o' de border (what border?)

I reckon your theme should be Sartor Resartus, Paco. 'Philosophy of Clothes' a revival of good tailoring and good taste.

Hand out free copies of the book like Chavez's handbook to keep the boffins guessing.

prairiecat55kc said...

My vote is yours, Paco! And any 'extras' I can round up from the Project up the street!

VOTE FOR PACO -
Proudly Pistol-whippin' Foreign Potentates!

missred said...

spot said...

We're in.

lotocoti said...

If foreign campaign donations are OK, there's a little left over from that thing, that time.
Vote Paco.
It'll be like having a friend in the family.

Col. Milquetoast said...

I throw my support behind Paco for President!

Paco : the fiscally responsible candidate.

Paco said...

Thanks, Colonel! That poster is sensational!!!

Bob Belvedere said...

Apologies for being in late with my public endorsement, but I assure you, as soon as I read this post, I endorsed you in my mind.
