The Jokes Are on Me
I love April Fools’ Day. (At least when I am the one pulling the jokes, like in 2009 and 2010.) It is a bit harder to love when I am the victim of jokes. I didn’t pull any jokes last year and I didn’t plan on pulling any jokes this year. I won’t pull any jokes this year because I haven’t spent the time required to make it a good joke.
Two jokes have been pulled on me already this year. The first joke was a phone call I received a few hours ago from somebody claiming to be from the “Winning Our Future” SuperPAC. The caller claimed that Sheldon Adelson is tired of wasting money on Newt Gingrich and was hoping for a different candidate to back. My Spidey senses didn’t tingle. I thought supporting me and voting for me would be “winning our future.” It turns out to be an April Fools’ Day joke. It was some guy pulling a prank.
I also found out the hard way that there is no annual Spring Day Parade anywhere in the Albany, NY area. I found out from a local in the area that a Lyndon LaRouche supporter did not like that LaRouch wasn’t getting any press coverage and wanted to get revenge at everybody who was getting coverage. (I haven’t gotten any press coverage for the campaign and the only mention I have gotten on TV was from apolitical tweets of mine that were read on TV and subliminal messages in some TV ads. )
Today is basically shot. I’m back at the hotel about to take a nap. I’ll figure out some kind of impromptu campaign event when I wake up.
