Don Quijote de la Chafee drops presidential bid

Don Quijote de la Chafee drops presidential bid

Linc Chafee’s Impossible Dream is over.

Lincoln Davenport Chafee, former U.S. Senator and Governor of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Mayor of Cranston, son of the late U.S. Senator John Chafee, and most importantly, farrier extraordinaire, announced this morning that he is abandoning his quest for the Democratic nomination to be President of the United States of America.

His campaign never got off the ground. He did little fundraising, and appeared catatonic during the first Democratic debate.

Today he dropped out. Watch:

The people of Rhode Island are heartbroken. Not because he’s dropping out, but because he now will have more time to spend in Rhode Island.

In honor of his quest, we present his campaign theme song:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


In and out, quick like a bunny!

No more ’tilting at windmills’…for now.

Where exactly is this “Rhode Island”? Atlantic? Pacific? Is it an American territory?

Professor Jacobson, what am I going to do with all of those metric wrenches I bought?
