On the Democrat side of the ledger, we have two billionaires running for the nomination.
Tom Steyer claims he is 5’8 1/2″ while Michael Bloomberg claims 5’8″.
If these numbers are to be believed, then Steyer towers over Bloomberg by half an inch.
This brings me to a question that was raised by a friend who studies such things — is there a minimum height requirement for Presidents given the enormous investment the Nation has in podii (the plural of podium, no?).
Michael Bloomberg is way richer than Tom, so is the press of that much wealth really the reason why Bloomberg is shorter?
Together, these two billionaires — short billionaires — have spent $300MM on ads. They are collectively polling less than 8%.
Too short for the Oval Office?
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. Have a great weekend. Party like a billionaire.
