The headline this morning from USA Today says it all: “Jose Canseco: Governor of Massachusetts?”
The always controversial former baseball great is turning heads with some provocative comments he made on Twitter from his mobile device this week.
“Can a cuban born american be a mayor or governor in new england?” Canseco asked on Twitter. “I am here to help and want to do good for all the people.”
The MLB legend went on to delve into some of the issues he feels passionately about.
“I have now learned of air quality problems in Sudbury ,lack of dog neutering and road repair everywhere ,and lack of $ for FDs & PDs,” he continued, only adding what he will do – apparently – as an elected official. “I will make it possible to turn right on red in Danvers and will bring hispeed internet to Braintree and solve the power outage in Fenway.”
Incidentally, the spelling and grammatical errors above are his… not mine.
“Politics is easy if you use your ears and not your mouth,” he concluded. “Just listen you government morons listen.”
So did Canseco really just express his interest for running for Governor of Massachusetts on Twitter?
What do you think? And, more importantly, do you think he could actually be elected? Please weigh in with a thought or comment below.
