Ahmnodt Heare for President

Ahmnodt Heare For America… Ahmnodt Heare For You.

A Confession to Make

I write this today with a heavy heart full of remorse.  I didn’t think much about it when I did it, but at the time it seemed like a good idea.  The truth is that Billy Mays never endorsed my campaign and the picture below is a fraud.

This is not a real endorsement.

Why did I do it?  I did it because I wanted to associate my campaign with an honest, trustworthy man with integrity.  My first choice was Eminem.  I was advised not to use him as an endorsement as people often confuse him with M&Ms.  As bad as it is to use a fake endorsement, it would be tasteless to use a fake endorsement from someone deceased.  I can at least say that I made this endorsement picture while he was still alive.  The “endorsement” was first posted on March 5, 2009.

The worst part is that by faking the endorsement of a man with integrity, I have compromised my own integrity.  I apologize to the Mays family, Billy Mays’ fans and my supporters for this lapse of judgement.

I will commemorate  the anniversary of Mr. Mays’ passing by stocking up on some OxiClean.

R.I.P. Billy Mays

I was saddened to learn that Billy Mays mysteriously died this morning.

Billy Mays 1958-2009

Billy Mays 1958-2009

I feel ashamed to admit that I didn’t like Billy Mays wearing the OxiClean shirt when I first saw the photo.  But to understand Billy Mays is to understand that he had a passion for every product he endorsed.  Sometimes I wish I had that kind of passion for my campaign.

He will be missed.
