Mitt Romney Essay Contest!

Hello gang, sorry for the light blogging recently. I’ve been busy with top-secret procrastination secrets “they” don’t want you to know about.

Anyway, for all the writers out there, I was scanning a list of grants and fellowships (Yaddo, Guggenheim Fellowship, McArthur Genius Award, etc.) when I found a new prize that raises the bar on prestige and reward:

Mitt Romney political organization, the Free and Strong America PAC, is offering supporters a new chance to take an expenses-paid trip to Boston and join Mitt himself in his family’s seats at Fenway Park for a Red Sox Game.

Which literary prize would you rather win: a trip to Yaddo, which I think is some farm in Wisconsin where novelists sit around eating turkey sandwiches and watching sunsets and talking about “I can’t finish my novel about the old lady with all the memories,” OR a trip to a freakin’ RED SOX BASEBALL TEAM GAME with Mitt Romney and his family where you hang out in a SKY BOX?

All you have to do is write an essay about “What A Free and Strong America Means to Me.”

Umm … I am totally about to win the shit out of this essay contest.
