You Could Be the Next Senator From Wyoming!

Live in Wyoming? Ever wondered what it’s like to listen to Robert Byrd drone on and on in a barely conscious state? Want to shin kick have a few words with Joe Lieberman?

Then it’s your lucky day. Over at Wonkette, they’ve discovered that the Wyoming GOP is honoring the recent death of Republican senator Craig Thomas by posting an application for his job on its website. Jeez, Craig, why’d you die? Your job couldn’t have been that taxing. It’s basically reality TV show fodder.

Anyway, there’s a PDF application that you have to fill out, and apparently it helps if you’re a member of the GOP/have served the state of Wyoming previously/have a platform. But whatevs, MoJoBlog readers could probably do a better job than a lot of the goofs currently in Congress. Go give it a shot.
