If you thought the Harold Ford campaign was hilarious, check this out: LAWeekly is reporting that Slate union-hating blogger Mickey Kaus took out papers to run for Senate in California against Democrat Barbara Boxer.
Technically I've only taken out the nomination papers, to gather the necessary signatures. I haven't returned them yet.
I did file a "candidate registration and qualification form," but I think that is just for their internal use at the registrar's office.
Look for the 14-part Slate series "Running Scared: My life as a Gag Senate Candidate". But, seriously, Mickey? Don't give Nikki Finke any ideas.
