    "Some Dude" is official DK elections-speak for someone running with not much public profile.

    Some Dude: Some candidates start out with certain built-in advantages: They already hold office, they have personal wealth, or they have a prominent public profile. Some Dude has none of these. If you Google Some Dude's name, you'll find very little information-probably just the news article or blog post where they were first mentioned as a possible candidate. A good hint you're dealing with a Some Dude is that they're described as an "activist" or "Tea Party member" in press accounts. Note: Some Dudes sometimes win!

      This race is NOT competitive. Mayor Jackson will be elected in a cakewalk, I expect by at least 80% of the vote. But we do have the most hilarious opposing candidate in the country.

      Actually, he's not just SOME Rich Dude — he's a Rich Dude par excellence! And he's not political, he's biblical! He keeps telling us that. God anointed him for public service, right after he finished with Michele Bachmann (no, the guy's not a rightie — just a big Boehner-hued ego on two legs).

      Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
