With so many people either getting into the Pennsylvania 10th Congressional race or toying with the idea it's hard to keep track of it without a score card.
The latest rumour was hard to track down. At first I thought that Debra Winger was considering a run. She looks great in a Wonder Woman outfit and her co-star in her biggest box office hit, Richard Gere, once played a political consultant in one of the most entertaining and underrated political movies of all time, Power. Sure, she is not a resident of the district but that hasn't stopped anyone else. I'm sure she can drop a few hundred thousand to buy a residence at a swanky address. When I inquired her publicist sent this response, "What kind of drugs are you on?" I guess that rules her out.
The glam band Winger was immediately ruled out because none of them will get a haircut. Plus I don't think that 4 people can occupy the same office. And showing my age, who is Kip Winger?
No, the Winger that is running (or not) is closer to home. It's regular commenter and blog buddy Right Winger. He said "I care. I, like most other people, feel my ideas and opinions are the only valid ones. I'd like to make more money and have lots of power. I'd better stop before I convince myself this is a great idea."
Mikhail Gorbachev, Bob Dole, Brittany Spears, Paris Hilton, Princess Diana, Joe Torre, Terrell Owens and Ryan Howard among others have also decided not to run.
