California Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown Considering a Run for the Presidency

Lots of talk in the San Francisco bay area that Jerry Brown is seriously considering a run for the Democratic nomination for the presidency.

Brown is currently the governor of California. He previously sought the Democratic nominations for President in 1976, 1980, and 1992.

Brown once called the presidential primaries a "gong show for the rich."

He has been heavily influenced by his lefty education: In 1955, Brown entered Santa Clara University for a year, and left to attend Sacred Heart Novitiate, a Jesuit seminary, intent on becoming a Catholic priest. Brown left the seminary after three years, enrolling at the University of California, Berkeley in 1960, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1961. Brown went on to Yale Law School and graduated with a Juris Doctor in 1964.

Brown is 75 years old, though appears very fit.


  1. You know if these self proclaimed progressives were seriously anti war and pro civil liberties I wouldn't mind them so much. I wonder if brown would actually raise those issues in the primaries. If he did I suspect he would get a lot of grass roots support, but no way they would ever let him win.

  2. Imagine if Liz Warren enters the race also.
    Progressive's heads will be exploding all over the country trying to decide who to vote for.

  3. I just hope that Jerry Brown brings in Jerry Wolfgang to be Vice President. Then America would flourish beyond our wildest dreams.

  4. California Uber Alles!

  5. Brown is a moron, but if he swore, upon the pain of death, to repeal the PATRIOT (sic) Act, end the wars overseas and here in the US (drug war, etc.) and dismantle the military- I would vote for him---while holding my nose and crossing my fingers.

    And end the spying, dismantle the NSA/CIA and only appoint true civil libertarians to any post.

    1. If that were the case, he wouldn't be allowed to be the nominee.

  6. Maybe they're the same person.
