Hello, have you met my friend the cardboard cutout of the president?


BADI BADIOZAMANI (I)


Website: www.badiforgovernor.org or www.badiozamani.com - DO NOT MISS the photo section! This guy'll pose with ANYBODY and put it on his website!

Call him: Dr. Badi (or Dr. Phil, I forget)

Claim to fame: Allegedly first Persian-American gubernatorial candidate in an American race

Man of ideas: If elected, would repeal raise in car tax, rehire school workers laid off due to budget cuts, halt increases in state tuitions....and save California from bankruptcy

Iran had a NAVY?: Served 1973-75

Creativity: Two daughters are named Ghazal and Ghazalle

So THAT'S how elections work: "We believe he has a chance to win because at this special election, any candidate who simply gets the highest number of votes will take the office."

Buy the book: His book, Iran & America: Rekindling a Love Lost, will be published in the fall.

Number of web pages containing BOTH terms "Badi Badiozamani" and "Axis of Evil", according to Google: 7

Quote: "This is an opportunity for me to offer my experience and assistance back to the state that let me and my family live the American dream." source: (latimes.com)

Vote for Badi Badiozamani - the "even more difficult to spell than Schwarzenegger" candidate

TOMORROW: SURF SANTA MONICA

Has he passed on the golden opportunity of having the Iron Sheik as his campaign manager?



Ok, so Ted Williams is decapitated now? What will his son do next, sell him to the Japanese dog food company that bought former Kentucky Derby winner Ferdinand?

His agenda is only missing one things, and that is:

To plant money tree. Plant a tree that grows $100 bills to fund the rest of my platform.

And I love "Create Jobs". As if the other 138 candidates are all taking the "Destroy Jobs" platform...

And I love even more the half quote:

it's possible that a Badi Badiozamani could end up in the governor's mansion. - NBCsandiego.com

Do you think it began with, "If all other candidates end up being killed in a freak accident on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno then..."

Watch, he'll end up winning...



"It's hard to be a prophet and still make a profit."
- Da Bush Babees

"Finally, a candidate who can explain the current administration's position on civil liberties in the original German."
- Bill Maher on Arnold Schwarzenneger

"You know, I'm a follower of American politics."
- President George W. Bush, 8 Aug 2003

The exact quote:

"The big names have big money and resources that can help them to get their names known to voters, but with maybe a hundred names on the ballot, it's possible that a Badio Badiozamani could end up in the governor's mansion"

Washington Post: Asked whether this whole thing, including the appearance of his name on the ballot, wasn't a deeply disturbing farce, Badiozamani replied no. "This is the most beautiful thing. This is a sign of beautiful democracy. This is not only democracy, but accountability," he said. "We need accountability."

I felt that that quote merited another unnecessary extension of his thread. ;-)
