The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad Max

Robert Hurt is a dentist (with that name, it figures) in Phoenix, he sees the November election as a Tweedledum/Tweedledee clash, and he proposes an alternative:

If you're pleased with the way things are and want 4 more years of the same then, by all means, vote for Mr. Bush. If in some way or another you think that Mr. Kerry will improve the situation then be sure to vote for him. But if you believe that our country should embark on a different, more positive course then consider making the effort to write in Mel Gibson for President on Nov. 2.

Um, we (that is to say, "they") don't allow write-ins in Oklahoma, and I'm not at all sure Mel would be pleased with a presidential draft, but hey — we could do worse.

At first blush I thought he'd be ineligible but he only grew up in Australia. He was born in Peekskill, N.Y., erstwhile television hometown of the "Facts of Life" girls.

Maybe that would disqualify him. Maybe it should.
