This man is running for President. No, really.

The Joementum for New Mexico Governor and Democratic Presidential hopeful Bill Richardson keeps building. Why, just check out his latest FDR moment:

Organ animal rights activist Bob Young told Richardson he was "disappointed" that the governor has not shown more support for legislation to ban cock fighting. New Mexico is one of the few states that has not banned cock fighting.

"I have not made up my mind on that," Richardson said.

The governor added the arguments for and against cock fighting have been strong on both sides. For the Legislature to be able to fully consider the issue it would need to be conducted during a 60-day session -- which is scheduled next year, from Jan. 16 until March 17.

"The issue is controversial and probably draws more people to the Legislature than a lot of other issues," Richardson said.

Of course, if he does move to ban them, Dubya would just move to grant amnesty to the illegal fighting poultry coming over the border from Mexico.

There's a "why did the chicken cross the road?" joke in there somewhere that I'm just too much of a lazy, overpaid, entitlement driven American to go pick.

As long as illegal foreign poultry would only be used in matches that American cocks were unwilling to fight....
