I say what I think. I'm a real person, not some manufactured pop tart who's afraid to step out of the hotel room. I am flawed. I swear, I have the occasional cocktail, I pick my nose and I fart. I'm not running for any presidential campaign at the moment. I'm a sassy girl.
I pledge you, pledge myself, to a New Deal for the American people.

During my 2004 presidential campaign, I was fond of saying that it was high time for the Christian right to meet the right Christians.
