Raj for Congress

Seeing some of Vermont's political candidates marching in today's Middlebury Memorial Day parade reminded me of an aspiring politician (and television celebrity) I've met.

Even though I can't endorse him or vote for him, I think it's great fun that Raj Bhakta, the bow-tie-wearing competitor from the fall 2004 season of The Apprentice, is a candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania's 13th District. Raj and a friend dropped in at Beau Ties several months ago during a visit to Vermont. He purchased a couple of bows and chatted with the staff, and was very congenial. Raj seemed like a nice young man.

Take a peek at Raj's web site,, if you're curious. (Did I see him wearing a four-in-hand in some of those photos?)

If I lived in Pennsylvania, I would vote for this guy. He seems like a straight-shooter.

We need politicians like him who can compete with and replace the Ted Kennedy's of the world, so the bad politicans will become like "water under the bridge."
