Yes.  I’m tired of the shenanigans that I have seen in the Iowa General Assembly.  I’ve been asked whether or not I would ever consider running, and I have decided that the people of Iowa House District 67 needs somebody who will truly represent their best interests.  We need somebody who will fight to:

  • Demand fiscal responsibility and transparency in the Statehouse.
  • Small Government
  • Better education for our kids
  • Lower taxes to encourage small business and job creation in Iowa.
  • to uphold the sanctity of life
  • Protect traditional marriage

You can watch a video of my announcement here.

Update: My conscience is bearing witness against me.  I have noticed that only about half of the people who viewed this post checked out the video announcement, which if watching it you’ll realize you’ve been rickrolled.  Some people still didn’t get it yet, and I had to explain it which then the fun is lost (like with my Mom, whose first e-mail back to me was, “are you crazy?”)

Wickle, it’s okay buddy.  I suckered my brother as well.

Anyway it is two days past, and want to make sure that everybody is aware that I am not really running for the Iowa House.

  1. Shane,

    You are such a punk! You had me all the way dude. I was planning to offer my services in your campaign!

    Blessings,

    Mike

  2. Hey Shane –

    It is about time! I haven't had a chance to view the video yet, since it is blocked at work. I helped you get started – your paperwork has been filed at the Sec of State's office. You got my support – lets do it!!!!

  3. Wow! Shane you have a great singing voice. Even though your voice doesn't match your 'look'.

    After politics, you could make a mint with a world tour. The Euros will love you! Maybe even more than 'The One'….

  4. 1) You got me. I've never been Rick-rolled before; in fact, I've looked at a couple things and called it an attempt. But you got me good.

    2) In Google reader, this post showed up with, of all things, a MoveOn.org ad saying that I should call Sen. Shaheen (D-NH) and tell her to vote for Obama's budget. For one thing, I would rather jab my own eye out than talk to Sen. Shaheen; for another, I was pretty sure that that wasn't something you were encouraging. It was good for a laugh, though.

    It makes everything read backwards also,so I put it in and then re-write the letters backwards and then erase the “correct” direction. Then you can stand on your head to read it without using a mirror!
