Earlier this month, it came to light that Pat had vowed to eat his underwear and gym socks if progressive Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) secured the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. While all polls have former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comfortably in the lead, Warren typically appears in second place, and she undoubtedly possesses many of the qualities that propelled then Illinois Senator Barack Obama to the presidency in 2008.
And now it appears as though the pro-Warren sentiment is ramping up. On Tuesday, a campaign titled “Ready for Warren” launched in an effort to persuade the freshman Senator to run.
“I think there’s an opportunity for us to convince her if we’re really able to make the case as to why we think she’s the right person,” Ready For Warren campaign manager Erica Sagrans told the Huffington Post.
On radio this morning, Pat held fast in his conviction that Warren will not succeed in becoming the Democratic nominee, while Glenn and Stu began trading recipes for the perfect gym sock and underwear feast.
“By the way, for anybody who happens to smell underwear, it may be the underwear we are cooking up for Pat to eat,” Glenn joked. “Headline: ‘Ready for Warren campaign launches to convince Elizabeth Warren to run for president.’ It has a Facebook page, in case you want to sign up. I may or may not be funding that Facebook page, just because Pat has vowed to ease his underwear, if she is the nominee.”
