Because Every State Really Ought to Have Two Ridiculous Proto-Teutonic Candidates for Governor

I'm not sure if Arnold Schwarzenegger is running for re-election in California, but there's good news for our friends in the Golden State:

Move over Arnold, there's another celebrity in the race for governor in California. Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, announced his intention to run as a liberal independent candidate Monday.

By all reasonable modern standards, von Anhalt is certainly qualified to be a candidate. KTLA helpfully points out his CV:

Von Anhalt is used to having his name in the news. He married Gabor in the mid-1980s.

In 2007, he claimed he was the biological father of Anna Nicole Smith's infant daughter.

Later that year, LAPD officers found him naked and handcuffed to the steering wheel of a 2006 Rolls Royce. Von Anhalt told officers that he was driving when "three white women" with a gun took his jewelry and clothes.

There has been speculation regarding whether Prince von Anhalt is actually a prince. According to reports, he was born Robert Lichtenberg, the son of a German policeman and bought his title after being adopted as an adult by a bankrupt daughter-in-law of the last kaiser.

Sounds like a good candidate to me. And we Minnesotans really can't sneer too much at a guy like von Anhalt throwing his hat into the ring, considering we elected Jesse Ventura. I think we missed a bet, though -- we really should have elected this guy.

during the recall, i was halfway backing Mary Cary for governor. I even said as much publically, though it was a chat page, no blog back then.

i'd back her again.

you changed yer cell # without telling me.
is it personal?

thats ok, i can take it...

Mr. D said...

No, I got your message, Gino -- just couldn't take the call; driving on icy roads is tough enough without talking on the cell, too.

Will call you tonight!

Oh, I'd like to manage Baron von Raschke's campaign! He could talk about putting "the Claw" on state spending, and he could respond to reporters by saying "Dat is all you need to know!"

I met the Baron once when I was at the Metrodome. He came off as very gentle and soft-spoken - and he was amazingly small. Shorter than me and even back then I think I had 20 pounds on him. Of course, in his day if you said anything to him about steroids he'd have thought you were talking about your new hi-fi system.
