Running for Office: Option 4

Sean Tevis for State Representative

My name is Sean Tevis [photo]. I'm an Information Architect in Kansas running for State Representative. I am a Democrat. In 2008 I decided to run for office. This is my story since election day. I'm committed to making open government a reality and I'm going to win in 2010.

Fight Evil. Get On A Shirt.

Sean Tevis is visiting more than 50 politicians who can make open government a reality. He wears a different shirt with each politician. Each shirt is unique and displays the names of 100 people like you. These shirts also have messages on them, which are Twitter-sized: 140 characters or less. The politician receives a copy of this shirt, too, for meeting with Sean. You get an account of this visit. More details are below:

'The Spirit of Colbert'

A number of people have suggested that I name my car — much like how Senator McCain named his bus the "Straight Talk Express". I am skeptical of this. I don't believe my car and his bus are similar. For example, my car is a) more fuel efficient and b) doesn't smell like Mentholatum. But I think the idea of naming my car deserves consideration.

Spirit of Colbert

A few have already suggested names: "The Open Government Express", "The Millenium Jayhawk", and the "I Can't Believe He's Driving That".

As you may know, Stephen Colbert was recently robbed of his chance to get a module of the international space station named after him. While I encourage Mr. Colbert to just change his name to 'Tranquility' (the name NASA chose) and claim victory - it doesn't seem likely. Mr. Colbert needs some name-recognition love from elsewhere.

Therefore, if we manage to get all 50 politician's shirts sponsored by June 1st, I will officially name my car "The Spirit of Colbert" in big letters across the sides. Unless, of course, I get a cease and desist letter from Comedy Central in which case I'll name it "Tranquility".
