Fred Smoot's Political Career

Gregg Williams on Fred Smoot: "He's one of those people, he always wants everybody to know that he's around. We tease him all the time, that he'd be a good politician, because he goes up and down the hallways saying 'Vote for me, vote for me, vote for me.'"

Media person to Gregg Williams: For what?

Gregg Williams to media persons: "For the mayor of Redskins Hall, I guess."

The Mayor (Toni L. Sandys - TWP).

Adam Himmelsomething to Fred Smoot: Really? Politics?

Smoot: "Most definitely. You know me, I just be myself. I think people appreciate that."

Adam Himmelsomething to Fred Smoot: So, what office?

Smoot: "Well you know, that's sometime down the line. Hopefully when I'm about 50 or 60 I might consider doing something like that."

Adam Himmelsomething to Fred Smoot: Around here?

Smoot: "Yeah, most definitely. I'll do it here. Yeah, I can do that, don't you think? You know, I'd do the right school and go do the right thing. I think I could."

Me to Fred Smoot: "What do you stand for, or whatever?" [Brilliant!]

Smoot: "I stand for The People, period."

Me to Fred Smoot: "Democrat or Republican?"

Smoot: "You tell no one that until you reveal it."

Smoot also says he has a new nickname. "I'll reveal the name later," he promised. "I'll reveal it when I reveal it."

Seems he's got a lot of revealing to do. Which might not be a good thing.

[Our photog took about 100 photos yesterday of Smoot's rear parts coming out of Smoot's shorts. Will try to find a way to get those up here.]
