By now, everyone knows that Conservative actors Ronald Reagan and Arnold Schwarzenegger eventually became politicians and successfully campaigned their way into the California Governor’s mansion.
Well, radio host and conservative activist Melanie Morgan has decided to begin a grassroots movement in order to land another well known Conservative actor in the same position and residence.
That’s right. In an online petition on her site Media Equalizer, Morgan calls for James Woods to run in the Golden State’s gubernatorial contest later this year.
So, could Woods be just what California needs? Morgan seems to thinks so.
“James Woods, governor of California? Why not? The Golden State has a long history of electing leaders from the deep end of thespian pool,” the petition reads. “From Ronald Reagan to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Californian voters actually seem to enjoy casting ballots for Republican actors.”
“An effort to shake up the California governor’s race by placing James Woods on the ballot is gathering steam. The online signature-gathering effort intends to assist fed-up Californians in taking a stand against one-party rule and the increasing likelihood that two Democrats will appear on November’s gubernatorial ballot amid a Republican shutout,” Morgan wrote.
“Californians deserve a choice in this year’s crucial election and it’s a mistake to allow Gavin Newsom to cakewalk right into the governorship without a fight,” Morgan continued.
Yes, and since Democrat nominee and former San Francisco Mayor, Gavin Newsom does not appear to “give a damn about anything beyond naked political ambition,” Morgan can’t help but wonder…why not Woods?
“Why not draft someone far more intelligent than any predecessor in that office?” she suggests.
I mean, sure…why not? After all, according to Morgan, Woods is a Mensa member and “a former Catholic altar boy who aced his SATs, was accepted to MIT, but dropped out to pursue acting.”
“Woods enjoyed a long career that only recently has ground to a halt because of his conservative political views,” Morgan also notes. “He’s since become an Internet sensation due to his brilliant, concise and downright scrappy way of summarizing a political moment, right to its essence.”
Indeed. If you don’t follow him on Twitter, you should. Highly recommended:

End #DACA completely, build the wall, defund sanctuary cities, end chain migration, enforce voter ID, and deport all lawbreakers. Democrats never listened to us when they were in control. Wake up, Republicans. You have the power. Use it, for God’s sake! https://t.co/ANz3rIJUrw

Now, whether Woods would actually be interested in running remains to be seen, but Morgan does make a compelling case here, don’t you think? I mean, there certainly could be far worse choices, right?
