Now, ya see, this is just a matter of running in the wrong region. Now place him in Washington DC, or maybe even Madison, WI, and Clarence has a bright future.

I’ve always said the first thing I would do if I was president, have EVERYBODY employed by government to submit to a random drug and alcohol test. Specifically the first day in office.

Would cull the herd by at least 50% IMO.

ANYBODY, receiving a taxpayer funded check should be subject to drug testing.

This is TOTALLY UNFAIR.

Why should the government jump in and ENDORSE the Dem just before the election?

I think some money, or drugs, changed hands for this endorsement.
