How to Run for President on a Budget

Today’s official JoeShopping Blog post was written by Featured Blogger Whit.

If we’ve learned anything from the good people of New Hampshire it is that anyone can run for president. No, I am not talking about the current field of GOP hopefuls in their fancy suits sitting on their overgrown wallets (although a case can be made for them as well), but real, honest, attention-seeking people. You know, the whack-jobs.

That’s not to say you’ve got to be crazy to run for president, but it helps. Also, lots of money. However, not all of us have bottomless pockets to support a campaign — that’s where this list of helpful, affordable political items comes in:

Nothing shakes up politics like a good scandal. While everyone has their respective skeletons in the closet, the trick is to keep yours hidden while publicly berating the competition for theirs. (Extra points if their secret is of a similar nature to your own.)

One of the key discussions in the current election is health care (or it will be once people stop trash-talking each other). You’ve got to have a solid health plan or at least be able to spit on the plans of your rival. I’ve seen it both ways.

This first aid kit makes a great health plan, and it comes with enough bandages that you might even be able to fix the economy. But not really.
