my appreciation goes out.

February 16, 2008

i want to thank all my supporters for, well, their support. i am humbled and honoured by the faith you have placed in me.

i want to thank the media, for exposing my flaws, showing me my strengths and, on occasion, even noting me worthy of attention.

i want to thank my competitors, for without you, i would not have had such a fulfilling experience.

congratulations, of course, go out to tristan markle. you have a steep learning curve, but i’m sure you’ll work it out.

finally, i want to thank one person in particular, who taught me precisely what the price of the kingdom is.

i am not cut out for representative democracy. this is painfully evident in my heart. but democracy is more than tossing a ballot into a box.

today, i am the luckiest man in this city.

thank you.
