Dukakis Announces 2020 Bid: “Everyone Else Is”

The former Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis announced on Tuesday morning that he would seek the Democratic nomination for President, declaring, “Everyone else is.”

Explaining his rationale for running, the 1988 Democratic Presidential nominee told reporters, “As everyone else started jumping into the race, I started feeling a little left out.”

Additionally, Dukakis explained, “People have been stopping me on the street and saying that they thought I was already running. So, whatever.”

The former standard-bearer said that before he threw his hat in the ring he paid a courtesy call to the 1984 Democratic nominee, Walter Mondale, to see if he was planning to run.

“I wouldn’t get into the race if Walter was going to do it,” Dukakis said. “This could be his year.”.....

2. I was more shocked to find out that Walter Mundane's still alive.

Which of course is good--no one wishes anybody dead--but given the nature of age, unexpected.

Next thing one knows, there'll be news that Walter Mundane's running mate from 1976 is still alive too.
