Schiff also talks about his likely-soon-to-be-announced Senate bid against Chris Dodd. Basically, he just stops short of committing in this excerpt below.
BTW, that weird jumpy edit right when he begins to discuss his run was from his original video (link above):
This may be the most interesting quote from the video (and by "interesting", I mean "horrific"):
"...I'm not promising anything specific if I win other than freedom from government. Other than going to government to put a stop to everything they're doing and to try to restore sanity to an insane Congress and to try to be a roadblock." (emphasis mine, of course)I can imagine this playing very well with the Teabaggers and the Paulites (I specifically avoided calling them "Paultards" because that really seems to make them apoplectic with rage, and I'm in a good mood this morning, so I'll try to be nice.)
I'd love to interview this guy. If his soon-to-be campaign staff sees this, please email me and we'll set it up.
I'm so sure that he'll run I'm gonna put my own money up to prove it! I hereby offer to bet the first comment respondent a sum of $7.25 (which happens to be the Department of Labor's Minimum Wage as of July 24, 2009) that Mr. Schiff will announce his candidacy by Labor Day, 2009 (Labor Day, get it?)
Mr. Schiff's pre-exploratory website is Schiffforsenate.com (and that's possibly the very first URL I've typed that has three "f's" in a row).
