    Beetle for Congress

    If I ran for Congress, in upstate New York, would you guys support and campaign for me?

    I am forming an exploratory committee, so let me know your thoughts.


    I will post my platform shortly.

    As a New Yorker, I'm more concerned with the residency requirement.

    The beetle lives in NY, so he's not the carpetbagger Billary was in that regard. Beetle, upstate is hard core Republican ground. Try your fellow libs down-state instead.

    Re: Beetle for Congress

    Oh yeah, but I won't vote for you. Part of that, of course, is that I dislike nymph fishing and I know you are pro-nymph fishing.

    They didn't. Instead they opted for the "He's gone" party and they host it weekly.
