Basil for governor of Tennessee

Chances are that you are one of the million or so people who have watched Basil explain his 2010 bid for governor of Tennessee. Just in case you missed it (or want to see it again), here’s Basil explaining his gubernatorial platform:

Lots of people have had some fun at Basil’s expense, mocking him for his less than polished presentation, and even accusing him of being drunk. There’s a simple explanation for his slurred speech, though, according to Basil himself: he only has three teeth.

Mr. explains more about his platform on his website, in his second list of things that are important:

a. School violents
b. Add reading of the minutes to the U.S.Congress mandatory
c. Get more of the lottery money to 1-12

2.Equal Health care
a. a free gift program
b. take a look at and redo all mandtory insurance programs
c. See why dental is not in most plans a tooth aches hurt more than a back aches and no teeths depresses people

However, poor dental care and unconventional political views are hardly enough to qualify as Bedlamy. What really earns Basil a visit is the fact that he was found not guilty, by reason of insanity, on seven criminal charges. That, and his hard-line stance on stopping slavery at traffic stops.

Mr. feels so strongly about slavery at traffic stops that he mentions it no fewer than nine times on his website. In fact, it’s his number one priority on his first list of “Things of important.” He has filed multiple lawsuits related to the issue, according to this list of “Things I done for my citizens”:

2. Filed suit against Governor Sunquest for promoting Slavery in Tenn.

3.. Filed a suit against Soddy Daisy Judge for promoting slaving at traffic stops.

4 .Filled a suit against Chattanooga Free Press, Tennessean, all TV stations , Hamilton [and Cumberland and Bradley] county attorney, D/A for extortion jury fixing,, racketeering, promoting slavery at traffic stops.

Basil also feels strongly that the American flag is not the true flag, and he has taken action for his beliefs:

8 Fix the Flag at Mill Park to fly right at a high cost of 12 stun by stun gun and now it fly right thank to 311.

Given his poor results in the primary  (as a Canadian, I admit that I really don’t know what that means) it’s unlikely that Basil will succeed in his bid for governor. Unfortunately, he was also unsuccessful in his past three attempts, as well as when he ran for the Tennessee State Senate (three times), and the United States Senate. This time, though, there’s strong incentive for voting for Mr.
