Washpost says is using book tour to test the water and poll his chances. I've decided to do same and announce my presidential run at Barnes & Noble. Clearly a hack writer-shaped hole in current field that needs filling.

$21 TRILLION of Pentagon financial transactions “could not be traced, documented, or explained.” $21T in Pentagon accounting errors. Medicare for All costs ~$32T. That means 66% of Medicare for All could have been funded already by the Pentagon. And that’s before our premiums.
