Lincoln Chafee Remains True To Bumbling Form As He Formally Announces Presidential Run

If you assume “any publicity is good publicity”, this might not be too terrible for Rhode Island.

Two months ago, in what we thought was a tardy April Fools joke, Linc Chafee declared he was “exploring” a run for the White House. Today, he has up and declared he’s officially throwing his hat into the race. At least, we’re assuming he did. The press says he did and we’re guessing he managed to declare that he was running, just like he did on national TV back on April 29th.

Political pundits have noted that during his exploration phase, Chafee wasn’t seen doing a whole hell of a lot, especially compared to all the other candidates who were “exploring” a run themselves. All those guys were running around, raising funds, talking to potential backers and the like.

One could give him the benefit of the doubt and assume that he was working his ass off under the radar, preparing a streamlined campaign where everything was meticulously planned and executed, but then his wife posted the following message to her Facebook page:

Now we are reminded that Linc Chafee is from a Rhode Island political dynasty…and the products of political dynasties tend to be a little “detached”.

We should also remember that this isn’t the end of the world. It’s not like he lost a car. He just didn’t know how to access his Facebook account…on the day he was launching his Presidential campaign…in 2015.
