In 2012, resigned governor Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) and former New Orleans mayor C. Ray Nagin (R-Dallas) will team up to contest the presidential election under the banner of a third party - the Chocolate Moose Party, Baby!
It now appears that current Georgia gubernatorial candidate John Oxendine does not want to be left off the Chocolate Moose bandwagon. He has recently been making bold political moves to ensure his name is mentioned alongside luminaries like Palin and Nagin, even if he doesn't have the record to match their star power.
Insiders say that he does have intangibles, including a nickname that both fits in with the horned quadrupedal image of the campaign and rhymes with the corporate logo of the party's media relations firm.
Perhaps he is angling for a spot in the Cabinet? Secretary of Treasure would be a likely landing spot for the former Georgia insurance commissioner.
