Tchaikovsky Sounds Funny: Jesse Ventura is Sploranging

Is this where I put in key words such as sex, lesbians, vampires, Christopher Lloyd and others things to which this blog do not pertain, but by putting them here, I may get hits from all the Christoper Lloyd lesbian vampire fans (and you know who you are)? This is the primarily humorous and occasionally rambling writings of Leon Tchaikovsky, humor writer. Enjoy.

Jesse Ventura is Sploranging

Tchaikovsky Sounds Funny

I think it is time to invent a new word: splorange. Splorange means to run for a political office when everyone knows you really are running but the candidate has not declared he or she is a candidate. We should have a word for that.

The real reason why I want to invent the word "splorange" is so there will be a word that rhymes with "orange".

So, Hillary Clinton is sploranging. Newt Gingrich is sploranging, although some think he is not really going to run but is only hinting he may run to boost sales of his new book. So, Newt may be a false sploranger. Larry Sabato counts 44 Republican and 12 Democratic splorangers.

Jesse Ventura is a sploranger. When he runs for President, he will join this distinguished list of Minnesota residents who have run for President and failed (what? You think Jesse actually has a chance at actually being elected President?):

Walter Mondale. Ran for President once and lost.
Hubert Humphrey. Ran for President many times and lost.
Eugene McCarthy. Ran for President many, many times and lost.
Harold Stassen. Ran for President many, many, many times and lost.

Ed Rendell for President. It is for his own good: maybe running for President would force him to go on a diet.
