The REST of the Republican Presidential Candidates


Michael the Archangel is God? Yes, just ask one the declared candidates for the Republican nomination for President of the United States. Check the rest of the field. Below is the info on Mr. Archangel:


Michael Jesus Archangel
(Michigan)
STATUS: ANNOUNCED CANDIDATE. This gadfly candidate -- who also uses the name "Saint Michael Jesus the Archangel" (note: formerly named Philip Silva until he legally adopted the Archangel moniker in 1996) -- appears rather delusional. "From the time I was a little boy I knew I was God and Michael the Archangel, but I didn't dare tell anyone, not even anyone in my family because I knew that the devil, Satan, was going to try to murder Me, and indeed he did try, four separate times," he explains. He says he's a Vietnam War veteran who attempted suicide due to depression and paranoia. He also claims he later became a "a volunteer Secret Agent for the Central Intelligence Agency without pay." A former janitor, he is a self-employed "writer" these days. As for politics, he describes himself as a "radical conservative Republican" who recognizes "the fact that America is an official Theocracy." Archangel was arrested on attempted murder and other felony charges in March 2006. "As a matter of fact, he is crazy. Anyone in their right mind can see that," said the Sheriff who arrested him. You can find lots and lots of very long pages of his bizarre writing on his official website: ArchangelMichael.info (you've got to scroll down very far on the homepage to find the link to his Presidential campaign and his autobiography).

Reminds me of when I was a kid. There was a guy from Seminole Co. that wore overalls and rode in the back of a pickup truck with his homemade signs and bullhorn proclaiming his "platform." He would go into courthouses and places of business telling people that he was running for president.

He was a harmless guy that was really just a local eccentric. Ahhhh the days........

I'm waiting for the Flat Earth Society to announce its candidate.

Of course there's really a LOT of difference between a Republican Presidential candidate and God.
Most specifically, God KNOWS he's not a Republican Presidential candidate.

Tina, that's got to make somebody's quote of the day list!
