    Sass Officially Announces He Is a Presidential Candidate in 2008

    Omaha, Nebraska Memorial Day 2005

    Steve Sass, Independent candidate for president of the United States, threw his hat into the ring, during his annual trip to Memorial Park, in Omaha on Memorial Day.

    At 47, Sass is a first time runner, and a self-described "long shot." But don't let that fool you. He speaks with an inexplicable bravado, given his extreme lack of experience for this particular job, yet he is continually able to justify his conclusions with a common sense approach that both democrats and republicans often find appealing.

    Sass has at once, cast himself as the modern day Pat Paulsen, mocking the very process he seems to engage, yet also going about the business of formulating his thoughts, positions, ideas, and values, with clarity of mind, and consistency of logic.

    It's easy to laugh at the prospect of anyone taking such a candidate seriously. Indeed, Sass himself seems to have as much fun as one might suppose he assumes you will have, surfing his website that is a enigmatic brew of political blog, mixed with self-promotion, and more than a bit of entertainment, and keen insight, into some of the complex problems our Executive Branch of the government faces in the 21st century.

    Steve Sass, a nobody who will get fewer votes than "None of the Above."

    I am willing to bet that this is a one-time post from an advertiser in his "campaign".

    I think you're correct. But at least it's a link to a campaign site!

    Hey, usually only one, or if it is a close race, two people get more votes than none of the above :tng:. A large part of the country doesn't vote.

    I still think there should actually be a "none of the above" choice, if more than half of us vote for "none of the above" they need to get new candidates and go from there. I think that this would bring in many of those people that currently don't vote because they cannot stomache either candidate.

    True... though I meant that more people will go to the polls and write in "None of the Above" than will vote for this dude.

    A modern day who?

    Yeah it is easy to laugh at people who liken themselves to no name people as though we are supposed to care.

    If we are supposed to care so much about this person why not mention some positions on issues? you would think that might help.
