Hey, George Zimmerman..what are you gonna do now? How about running for Congress?

Little thought has been given to the plight of George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who about half the country now wants to see arrested, tarred and feathered, tried, and drawn and quartered, and all before the end of the month.

So what’s the guy to do? Can’t go to Disneyworld…he lives right around the corner, so it’s no big deal for him…and besides, the suits at Disney would probably find a way to bar him. He’s in hiding, virtually in a self imposed house arrest, and oh, yeah, the Black Panthers have a bounty on his head. Zimmerman’s friends and neighbors have tried to come to his defense, but they’ve been shouted down and/or threatened themselves.

So, instead of sitting around waiting to see if he’s going to be indicted, here’s a thought. Run for Congress. Your current congresscritter, Corrine Brown, is without a doubt one of the dimmest bulbs in the House firmament.  But since she’s just about bulletproof, at least electorally..she won last time out with 63% of the vote, it’s not likely that the GOP will field a serious candidate.

So, George, go for it. Get yourself a platform to tell your story. Run against Corinne. It’ll be a hoot.

I mean,  let’s be honest here….you won’t have much else to do this summer.
