Michael Moore,

It was with great delight that I read about your willingness to serve as President of our United States in the April 6th, 2015 edition of the Nation magazine. I announced that week to my family and friends that I finally had a candidate that I could support without reservation.

Of course, you intended your announcement as a joke and compiled your twenty point platform for comedic effect.

The joke is indeed on all of us, as your platform – jokes and all, is far better than whatever Hillary Clinton is likely to advocate. Assuming that she actually implements the platform she adopts, instead of just setting up Jamie Dimon on speed dial to determine what she should think on any given issue. (Just as Scott Walker has outsourced his thinking to Koch Industries.) I know it is asking a great deal of you; but would you consider running for President for real? The thing I admire the most about you is that you always know your own mind. There must be something in the water in Washington, DC such that whoever is sent there forgets all common sense and adopts in its place this weird Washington consensus: might make right, trickle-down economics was a fantastic success, trade agreements create jobs, stupidity and ignorance are admirable qualities, if we just bomb people overseas enough – they (the people who survive) will finally appreciate us, etc.

Some of our Presidents have been able to at least function in the DC environment – Jimmy Carter for example. But most others start acting like the pod people in the Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978 version).

Seriously, please think about it. And if you do decide to run and are elected as either President or Vice-President, whatever you do, don’t drink the water in Washington, DC.

Update – The above mailing address for Michael Moore refused delivery of my letter.
