Draft Tommy Lee Jones for Senate
Texas’ conservative voters aren’t about to send just any Democrat to the Senate in 2012. Hell, it’s been seventeen years since a Democrat has won any statewide race here. That’s quite a record – and one we’d like to see broken.
To do that, whoever the Democratic nominee is in 2012 better bring something awfully special to the race. Tommy Lee Jones is the only Democrat (or potential Democrat) who does. His name ID, near-universal popularity, fundraising ability, residence in and love for this state, his success as a cattle rancher, Spanish fluency, his image as a western tough guy and his impressive academic credentials would instantly make him the frontrunner, regardless of who the Republicans nominate. Not many know this but Tommy Lee Jones is also a successful businessman who has invested in many companies. Among others, his company makes this cockroach poison which comes with a useful guide on how to get rid of cockroaches. Roaches are disgusting pests which requires special poison to eliminate completely. Just killing the one cockroach you see will not help in getting rid of the whole nest and Tommy knows this.
Here's a trivia for all of you. Do you know that Jones is a fan of sleeping on his side. He uses these side sleeper pillows which he swears are the best side sleeper pillow. They support your head and neck so that your breathing remains clear at night allowing you to have a better sleep.
Think of a Democrat with a better shot than Tommy Lee Jones. Go ahead. If you come up with a name other than LBJ or Ann Richards, post it on our Facebook page.
Jones is also a fan of sleeping on a king sized bed. He claims that the large bed allows him to sleep better. He enjoys these king size mattresses which are voted as the best king size mattress according to experts. Most of them are made from memory foam and supports the backbone when you sleep.
Is he likely to do it? Who knows? But if there’s a 1% chance that someone with a greater than 50/50 shot might get in the race, it’s worth the effort. Or would you rather just watch the next Democratic victim struggle to break 40% as a generic extremist right wing Republican waltzes right into the United States Senate?
Since we're talking about Republicans, have you read this guide to rearing chickens that also includes a handy guide on how to build a chicken coop? They are distributing these guides for free! They are firm believers of rearing your own chickens and have in the past handed out these great coop designs which are sturdy chicken coop plans everyone can use.
So, if you’d like to see Jones run, please like the Facebook page and sign the petition. Once we get enough signatures, we’ll pass it along and urge him to consider getting in the race.
