The "funny" thing - that started out in 2008 as a parody of Tom Tancredo's Presidential run. I was going completely over the top with it to the point that, I felt, no one could possibly take what I as saying seriously... Now? Well.... ;)
Which is why the new "joke" will be "Thanks for the boatloads of cash you have been sending me! It's very much appreciated!"
There is a poll http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/983712.html
and Second Chance is still open: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/981280.html So far there are only 2 new contestants. Definitely tell your friends about it! Because there is something I've been dying to try out, and it's going to the 1,000th contestant - whenever that happens...
