    I too, am throwing my hat in the ring and cannot think of a better place to announce my candidacy than here at talkbass.com

    I believe I will offer a fresh vision in Sacramento and innovative ideas to address our current budget crisis.

    Please watch this forum in the coming weeks as I develop my platform.

    I will appreciate your vote. That's Max Gardner, the next Governor of the great state of California. Thank you.
  2. Congratulations.

    You should have fun debating with Larry Flynt and AHHHnold.:D

    I'm sorry, but I prefer to vote for a pornographer :rolleyes: ...so Mr. Flynt will be getting my vote.

    Oh, wait - I don't live in California.
  4. Hey Max, I don't live in California, but, if I did, I'd vote for you!

    Hell, I know you a lot better than Arnold!

    I think Arnold's O.K. in the movies, but, I have a terrible vision of a bill that's near and dear to Arnold's heart being voted down in the State senate, and Arnold simply walks to the middle of the floor, stares everyone down, and then says, I'LL BE BACK! :eek: :bawl:

    That would scare the crap outta me!

    May I be an online advisor? :)

    Go Max!

    Mike :D

    Thank you for the initial support. Yes, Michael please be an online advisor. Munji will by my campaign manager. I haven't asked him but I think he will say yes. (Where is he by the way?) Gabu will be my finance manager. I haven't asked him, but I think he will say yes. Mike Money will be my driver.

    I propose the imposition of an increased sales tax on the sale of DJ equipment. Two for one bass strings, that's good. I will grant tax free status to Rickenbacker, Fender, MusicMan and any other bass company manufacturing in California plus full diplomatic immunity to any of their employees.

    I don't have any scandals in my past. I need a mistress.

    I think I'm gonna move to Cali so I can vote for Max! Gotta candidate for Lt. Gov? I'm available (and will need a steady gig after I move...) :D

    Oh, how about Liasion To Bass Equipment Manufacturers! :cool:

    By the way, you left out Zon, Alembic, Azola, Demeter, AccuGroove, and...there are a few dozen more...

    I'm perfectly qualified for the gig! ;)

    As for a scandal, I recommend you PM Broken Angel...

    I'd be with you Max but Gallagher already asked to be his running mate and I said yes.
  14. I think Arnie's main weak spot is that he keeps using the same one-liners eg. "I'll be back", "hasta la vista, baby", some lame termination reference.

    so you could sneak ahead by appropriating all the other one-liners from his films that he doesn't use-
    eg. if there's some scandal about Arnie and a mistress- "consider that a divorce"

    if someone asks what Arnie's reaction to you being in the running is- "ah, he had to split"

    when polls suggest you're ahead- "well that hit the spot"

    and all the others eg. "stick around" etc. etc.

    Arnold sounds kind of like Henry Kissenger.

    I hope you get elected.
    I happen to live in Sac, and you know it would be cool to jam at the Capitol.

    We could have a Northern California get together, and jam at the Capitol.
  17. I leave for one lousy month, and the underlings get all upitty.:D

    Cool. Did you actually sign up? I mean, between and porn star, and porn king, Gary Coleman and a living robot, you ought to have a pretty good chance.

    Either that or no one will vote for you cause you aren't weird enough.

    Rock on
  18. Wow, what a coincidence! I heard some DJ for a Detroit classic rock station announce his candidacy today too. Small world! ;)
  19. If I lived in California I'd vote for Arnold for sure. Despite what many people seem to think, he is actually a very intelligent person, and most importantly, NOT a politician. Arnold can run for governor and have a legitimate chance of winning because his name is so recognizeable. As a politician, the only way to rise to the top and have a chance of gaining a position of power is to lie, cheat, and steal. I'm sure plenty of people become politicians with noble intentions, but they'll never have any success without becoming just as corrupt as any of them.

    On the Tonight Show, Arnold came right out and said that he has plenty of money already so he can't be bought.
