I like Ohio governor John Kasich a lot. He’s reasonable. He doesn’t act like a child. He has convictions that aren’t just the folly of toupee-loving popularity winds. He doesn’t have to resort to flashy headlines about walls and identity politics. He’s everything that a great political leader should be. And now there’s an even better reason America should get behind the Governor of Ohio’s bid for Presidency: He thinks the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday.
He revealed this important tentpole of his platform on Dan Patrick this morning. Watch it above.
Amen. Shut down the post office. Shut down all government offices and schools. No one is doing anything the day after the Super Bowl except talking about the Super Bowl. Everyone who *needs* to do something for whatever reason on that Monday will still get it done. But let’s not force The Greatest Country In The World to get back to the grind when we’re all *probably* still drunk from the day before. It’s been about 10 years since the last time I’ve not had a hangover the day after the Super Bowl.
Why is the Republican base still rallying around Trump again? When Kasich takes positions like this, how can he not be elected President? Millions and millions call in sick the day after the Super Bowl. Let’s stop forcing the honest, football-and-booze-loving citizens of this country to be liars.
Your move, Donald, Hilary, Cruz, Bernie. Kasich is sounding like an MVP in everything except delegate count right now. He mentions this at an open convention and he’s getting the nomination for sure.
