With word leaking out that Rick Brandt has been banned from Markham Place School, even though he wasn’t when MMM screwed up and inferred that he was earlier this week, the 30 year old printing and packaging salesmen is coming to grips with the fact that he is not going to win the Republican nomination for Little Silver Mayor. MMM has learned that Brandt is now considering becoming the 24th person to enter the race for 2020 Democrat nomination for President of the United States.
When informed that the U.S. Constitution requires that Presidents be 35 years of age, Brandt smiled, put two thumbs up and filed his paperwork anyway.
“Democrats have been much nicer to me than Republicans have,” Brandt said. “Josh Welle was so appreciative of my support last year when, even though I had just been elected to the Little Silver Republican Committee, I helped organize a fundraiser and meet and greet for him in town. All those Josh Welle for Congress signs in Little Silver last year? Well whose signs are on those lawns today?”
“I wrote to Chris Smith after he beat Welle and told him how much I admired him, hoping he would endorse me for Mayor, but Declan O’Scanlon told Smith about all I did for Welle, otherwise I’m sure I would have gotten the congressman’s endorsement.”
Brandt said his first step in securing the 2020 Dem nomination in Milwaukee is to charm award-winning songwriter Karen Sokolof Javitch into adding a stanza dedicated to him to her newly released song, Why Don’t You Run For President?
His second step is to order matching suits for he and his brother to wear to a Brewers game during the convention in Milwaukee.
“I’m going to knock on every door in America,” Brandt declared. “I care about every person that much and every American deserves a personal relationship with their president. Unfortunately, that won’t leave me any time to for the debates or to talk to reporters.”
Editors note: Rick Brandt was banned from Markham Place School today by the Little Silver Board of Education. Brandt was acknowledged by Josh Welle for his support last year in the CD-4 election against Congressman Chris Smith and Senator Declan O’Scanlon did inform Smith of Brandt’s public support of Welle. The rest of this story is satire.
