Other things that Gookin isn’t

At the Reagan Republican lunch Thursday, Councilman Dan Gookin told the gathered activists that he's neither Repubican or Libertarian. So Wedeln6969 decided to list 10 "other things Gookin may consider himself not to be":

  • 1. A Rastafarian named Jimmy
  • 2. A lover of things that live in old plywood stacks
  • 3. A Cryptozoology Professor
  • 4. Point man on a Maoist "Shining Path" recon squad.
  • 5. A large animal Veterinarian.
  • 6. A guy who says no to the biscuits and gravy in the breakfast buffet line but loads up on fresh strawberries and kiwi fruit.
  • 7. A wicked clown (Juggalo)
  • 8. Kim Kardashian's secret North idaho love interest.
  • 9. That guy wearing the spaghetti strap gown in his living room role playing a triumphant entrance to a CHS Homecoming Dance.
  • 10. Councilman for Dummies!

Question: What don't you consider Councilman Gookin to be?
