Presidential Election- Captain Obvious

Oh, politics.  Once upon a time I taught Civics to eighth graders and each year we ran a mock Presidential Election.  My eighth graders never ran smear campaigns nor did they scream hate at each other while debating.  I’m grateful that our future (youth-wise) appears brighter than our current state of affairs.  As someone who loves political cartoons as they usually bring to light issues that are incredibly relevant with just a touch of dry humor I am jumping on board Captain Obvious’ train for President.

Captain Obvious is running for President; the only way he knows how….by physically running. He’ll be providing satirical commentary on what has already proven to be an “interesting” election year.

Fans can follow Captain Obvious’ run at “Captain Obvious Runs For President”  where they can watch what states he’s run through, grab some merchandise, and share content. is supporting Captain Obvious during his race because they believe in simplicity as much as he does – and he’ll need a place to sleep at night. They’ll be providing him with running shoes, socks, shorts and everything else he needs for his run.

Here is hoping that the rest of the election year RUNS just a bit more smoothly.  I mean, if my eighth grade kids could do it… why not ALL of the people who could be the ruler of the free world?


Yes.  The answer is YES THEY CAN.

Thank you Captain Obvious.

I hope for the coaches sake that they have a new one for the little kickers program… I don’t know if the last one made it after surviving a group of three and four year olds!

Did you play sports growing up?

When did you start playing?

We grew up with my Mom coaching us in soccer and I loved playing basketball, running track, and playing competitive soccer.
