Prince of a governor?

Prince Frederic von Anhalt, 65, wants to be Governor of California. He believes in legalizing marijuana, Cuban cigars and prostitution and then taxing them. He wants to lower car registration fees for good drivers and then tax bad drivers.

Apparently running as an Independent, he also wants to legalize gay marriage. “Let them be as miserable as the rest of us,” he told the Associated Press. He probably said that because he’s been married seven times. His current wife, Zsa Zsa Gabor, has been married eight times.

Also, his official campaign website has a great shot of him looking like a cross between Wesley Clark and Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph.

Since this is California, none of this should surprise anyone.

    No, not surprizing, but not likely to happen. As you say, “Since this is California…”, why is this even news?
