The Other Candidates for Senate

Tired of George Allen and Jim Webb? There are two other people running for Sen. Allen's seat.

One is Thomas Cook, who: a quality inspector at Cadmus Communications and somewhat of a local country musician. He says he was inspired to run as an independent write-in candidate by the irreverent country star and best-selling mystery author, Kinky Friedman, who’s running for governor of Texas.

The other is Gail Parker, who wants "more trains, less traffic."

Of course, neither has a snowball's chance of winning. But there they are.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns
