Vote for Jack Grisham.

Surfer, laborer, and punk band frontman Jack Grisham says he has “just as much experience as Ronald Reagan did when he became governor of California,” and like Arnold Schwarzenegger, would hire top accountants to come up with solutions for California�s budget crisis.

“It’s like being a producer,� Grisham recently told MTV, “you get the best people around you to take care of business.”

The similarities end there. Unlike other celebrity candidates, Grisham is running for governor as an everyday California guy.

“Most of us aren�t riding around in Humvees with bodyguards,” he is quoted as saying in the news articles linked to his website. “The people who are getting elected have no idea � no idea � what life is like for the average person. I do.”

Refused government assistance with his medical bills for a bad back because his income is slightly more than the qualifying limit, Grisham is a strong proponent of universal health coverage.

“I work with undocumented alien immigrants all the time and I got tired seeing what they go through and no one caring. And they put this new budget out and the first thing they slash is health care and the first thing they start screwing is the people.”

Grisham also supports environmental activism through Surfrider, and is in favor of reforms in immigration, drug and prostitution laws.

No doubt Art Torres, California DNC Chairman, would think Grisham among the Bozos. But unlike Mr. Torres and political pundits from here to D.C., Grisham welcomes the number of candidates running for California’s top spot.

“[We] got people making jokes about all the cranks jumping in � you know porn stars and whatever else � but what pisses me off, is more people haven’t jumped in. � Artists, activists � this is our chance! These people let it go by! I mean, we’re talking about getting somebody in the governor�s office who�s spent some time in the tube�Not just somebody who’s driving by on his way to a $300 lunch.”

“Mainly what I�m trying to do in my platform is champion the people,” Grisham says.

Sacramento, are you listening?
