Tweezerman: A Humble Catch
Uh-oh, is Tweezerman flip-flopping so soon in the game?
Worried that his initial comment might make him seem "arrogant," Tweezerman, the newest name in the 2008 presidential field, is seeking to clarify a statement he made to the Sleuth in his first major media interview about his bid for the White House.
Tweezerman, whose real name is Dal LaMagna but who embraces - in fact, even coined - his nickname, took issue with a quote attributed to him about marriage.
Being divorced and single, LaMagna, an amiable, down-to-earth peace activist and multi-millionaire, acknowledged that his single status could be a factor with the voting public. He told the Sleuth in an interview yesterday: "If I become president, there are women who I know in my life who - if Americans wanted me to have a wife - would be happy to marry me."
Well, he was fit to be tied when he read the quote, hence his email to the Sleuth with the subject line "Thanks for getting me in trouble with every ex-girlfriend."
Later, in a very cordial telephone conversation with the Sleuth, Tweezerman said what he really "intended" to say was that if Americans insist there be a Mrs. Tweezerman (if they don't want another James Buchanan in the White House) and they demand President Tweezerman take a first lady, "There are women in my life who I would be happy to marry."
In other words, to any ex-girlfriend or female acquaintance of Tweezerman who may have taken offense:
He would be equally as delighted to marry you as you would be to marry him.
He is not suggesting it would be you who would be lucky. It would be his great fortune, as well, to join you in matrimony.
So, ladies, if Dal LaMagna becomes a serious contender and any of you are contacted by a snarky reporter asking "Are you one of the women who would be so happy to marry Tweezerman?" please remember: Tweezerman would be happy to marry you, as well.
