Definitely funny, but you have to give him credit for going for it. Unfortunately his speaking ability hasn't caught up with his boating ability, but in time, who knows...

Totally...

Really the only 'bad' thing I thought he said was that we wants to be in politics because he doesn't want to be remembered as just an extreme athlete. Being in office shouldn't be about the elected person, it should be about the constituents s/he serves. An obvious point, but also often not practiced it seems.

You would think being a kayaker he would be good at knots and be able to learn a double windsor pretty quick.

I'm disappointed by many of you with your posts regarding me running for office. I expected boaters to be more positive and supportive for people that are really trying to make a positive difference.
How many of you are out working hard to make your community or country a better place? How many of you donate money to a cause you believe in? How many of you sponsor a poor family that needs help? How many of you are working with an environmental organization to help protect the river you paddle on?
By the looks of your posts I'm guessing not many.
For a moment why don't you stop trying to drag someone down and start trying to lift people up? Why don't you stop criticizing and start trying to do it better yourself? Why don't you donate to someone else campaign that you really support?
That being said I think there are many other boaters that are positive and those are the ones I really respect.

Tao,

Ah, well you know how it is on the internet. There was certainly some jest in my post as well. There's something funny about a boater getting all dressed up, acting earnest and running for political office, and it's easy to give someone a hard time. But in all seriousness, I think it's great what you're doing. The boating lifestyle is, in many ways, inherently narcissistic and your point is well taken regarding giving back to your community. If I lived in your district, you'd probably have my vote. Good luck!
