Those are some good ideas HeadHunter. A few things you definitely wouldn't want to see though in a ghetto politician:
1) Wouldn't want to have the guy graduate from Harvard law magna cum laude. That would make him seem uppity and too out of touch with the poor ghetto people.
2) Wouldn't want him to speak like the white man. Ebonics is a proud cultural tradition.
3) Wouldn't want him to have experience living in other countries. That would make it seem like he's too worldly and knowledgeable, which once again is contrary to the rap, hoes, and money ghetto culture.
Some thoughts on the ideal redneck candidate:
1) Old white guy. Because he's one of us, right?
2) Graduate near the bottom of your class. Let's everyone know you're no better than them. People out in the country want to know they've got 'one of them' running the show, not someone who's smarter than everyone else.
3) Leave your wife for a girl 15-20 years younger than you. Lets everyone know you're good with the ladies.
4) Be a combat veteran. Cuz he's probably good at huntin' and fishin', right?
