Basil Marceaux's Quest for the TN Governor's Mansion

Is this man for real? Apparently so.

Basil Marceaux was born in Strousburg, PA in 1952 and at some point migrated to Soddy-Daisy, TN which is near Chattanooga. Once Soddy and Daisy were two different communities but a new highway brought them together in eternal bliss.

Marceuax's name appears third in an alphabetical listing of Republican candidates for governor on the official sample ballot. Shaw asked in a comment what I knew about him and I had to tell her I had never even heard his name before.

I found two websites for Mr. Marceaux. The first is but I can't figure out if it's for real or not. In fact, I'm not sure if anything about Basil is for real.

The site "offers two exclusive shirts for you to display your pride for America's favorite candidate. Be the first on your block to stick it to the man!"

At the bottom of the page we find: is not affiliated nor endorsed by Basil Marceaux. But we do love him. All orders are processed and fulfilled securely through The goal of this site to to promote and centralize awareness for Basil Marceaux. And gas money
The second site is more revealing and is probably the genuine article. For the sake of our sanity I'm just going to provide some highlights. In order for you to appreciate the ambiance I'm foregoing the usual editing this kind of document requires but layout is being adjusted for the sake of space.

VOTE FOR ME AND IF I WIN I WILL IMMUNE YOU FROM ALL STATE CRIMES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE! (Except violating a citizen rights this would be a special punishment ) Making Tennessee the first state in the United States to actually listen to the U.S.and state Constitution ,and all cities charters
Things of important

 1. Can a higher court say no to 2nd traffic stops And a county court say yes overruling the higher court,
No they can not! But they everyday in Tennessee. Are you duly convicted? No I would take 12 stuns’ to protect a citizen . Would a lawyer? No they will not! They do not even read Knowels vs. Iowa? Tenn vs. Pucket

2.The State fuel budget is a concern of mine it may Hinder safety side of our government. I would introduce a bill to make all the state vacant land that are open field and along the high way a farm and this farm will plant corn products and other plant life that can be use for alterative fuel

The 13th says criminal are slaves so we will take non.- violent criminals who are duly convicted and aloud them to work our farms to plant, take care of, harvest, put are the product into trucks where they took too the refiner ,give them some of the product to pay for process and we will take the rest in money or alternate fuel too be delivered too cities, counties around the state.

3. I would like to update the monitory car insurance to match the federal insurance act where they say if you do not know the name and address of the person who will get the check when you pay you money to your agent it is gaming and we can not gamble in Tenn, right now we are gaming. My plan would lower car insurance by 45% . With this plan to follow federal act is too insure your our car and nobody else because the only name we will know who will get the check is ourselves who pay the money to agent. We have no insurable interest in any other person

Citizens who get food stamp and S/S check can not afford to buy where food now can they afford to pay Insurance we would need to find a way to pay the insurance for them.

4. My friends a beer stores say they must check 200 D/L a day that 400 minutes a day per clerk which is over 6 hours at $ 7.00 a hour that $ 42.00, with it mandatory then we must pay them.

5. I believe we must hate the U.S. Flag because we fly the wrong one and when we fly the right one we and the government fly it wrong. Can we start honoring the flag Again.

6. Either as a senator and when I run for 2010 governor post I will recall all gun permits and registrations and we will not had any registration in this state. The right too bear arms against our government and not burglars must be protected after the Supreme court ruling.

7. I find it hard to take a campaign fund from anyone because if they give me money they expect something and then they seal it with a hand shack . I think this is bribery so to keep everybody honest lets put all funds in one bucket, then divide the bucket by cities, counties and state ,then divide those buckets among who ever once want to run and nobody owes anybody.

8. Education ,let us put phonics back in school if you can not read you can not do History, Math, English. And that where we are now. Let make it mandatory in high school to read the minutes to the U.S. Congress , the Congressional Globe the real history of the U.S

9 Look for my citizens enemy!

People Called to stop Slavery at traffic stop they all say county court can not overrule supreme court ,but
no-one will help while 1.8 billion is stole by false arrest
Things I done for my citizens

  1. Sounds like one of the smarter republicans around. Maybe he could run as Sarah's VP in 2012. But then, she probably does not want a running mate that is brighter than her.

  2. I saw the video on this guy. What an idiot.

  3. JC: LOL. There's more than one parallel there. They were both overnight sensations.

    Mike: I haven't figured him out. I just wonder if some of his boozing buddies didn't put him up to it. Or better yet, if he's making fun of or mocking the Republican party.

  4. Somebody should tell him he was born in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Maybe he missed the phonics lesson that taught the sound of the letter D in the middle of a word. Of course, maybe that little mistake might negate the legality of any paperwork he's filed for the governor's race. That would be a hoot, wouldn't it? You betcha!

  5. Paula: That would be a hoot. I don't know PA geography as well as I might, so I didn't catch it. Thanks for the laugh.

  6. First, it's Stroudsburg, Pa., with a "d."

    Marceaux indicates he served in the Marines. I can't help but wonder if at some point between then and now the guy suffered a head injury, had a stroke or developed a brain tumor. Seriously, he comes across as impaired. If he is impaired, he's more to be pitied than condemned.

  7. Melissa, my wife says she read he doesn't drink.
    The guy writes like he's had a snoot full. Reminds me of someone, hmm it will come to me.
    Anyway I love the guy and can't wait till he makes another video. I just hope he don't come home and shoot someone just cause Maybelle pissed him off.;)

  8. S.W. - you might be right. But if that's the case, don't you think his family would step in?
    Soddy-Daisy may have changed a lot since I went through there several years back. It is absolutely gorgeous country - very hilly and near enough to the TN River to toss out a line from your front porch. It had a population of 11,500 in 2000. People are very backwards back in them thar hills.

    Tim: There are 3 videos on that first website. He looks quite different in the picture at the top which lends some weight to SW's theory.

    Bee: Finally, someone who spells worse than I do.

  9. I've just been waiting for you to post on this! I knew you'd do a great job.

    My son in Smyrna sent me links to the YouTube video, saying he thought Basil was the planted payback for Alvin Greene. I deliberately held back posting on Mr. Marceaux, preferring to let my blog friends in TN take him apart; so glad I did! (Must have blogger meet-up when I'm visiting my son.)

  10. Nance: Thank you as always. I saw a campaign video produced by college kids today for Greene. Pretty pathetic. It was on one of the mega sites like TPM or Crooks and Liars. Sounds like his mouth is full of mush.

  11.'re Akeelah compared to this guy! That isn't even mis-spelling a word...monitory is making it up!

  12. Beekeepers----As we all know, even Shakespeare and Palin made/make up words.

  13. Bee: I don't think so - not with my dyslexic brain.

    paula: Comparing Palin to the Bard gives me a migraine.

    Holte: I'm glad you saw it.

  14. Colbert did a piece on him last week and could barely keep from laughing, discussing his platform.

    How could you not like a guy that wants to bring manners back into society? I almost feel bad for this guy.
    I want yas'all to vote for Basil Marceaux, I want you to say a pledge of allegiance to a republic in the morning when you come out and we all pray to God and say Amen and everyone have a nice day and I'll see you at the polls.

    Now I don't know about you guys but toothless people depress me too, because I know they are not covered by dental health and that can be dangerous to your body.

    a. School violents
    b. Add reading of the minutes to the U.S.Congress mandatory
    c. Get more of the lottery money to 1-12

    2.Equal Health care
    a. a free gift program
    b. take a look at and redo all mandtory insurance programs
    c. See why dental is not in most plans a tooth aches hurt more than a back aches and no teeths depresses people

  15. I think you're all confusing what Basil said with what he meant.

    At least that's what he'll be told to say if he wins. Kind of like Rand Paul.

  16. tnlib, if Marceaux is impaired, I would hope he has family and that they would step in. But it appears he either doesn't or they won't. I probably seem like a wet blanket. I just see the guy as an unfortunate who, unlike so many others, can't help being the way he is.

  17. SW: according to his web site he is married and has two offspring. Southern Beale posted about him last night. I said his pattern of speech indicates he might me mentally challenged. She responded that he only has three teeth.

  18. Basil has a right to run just like anyone else, you don't have to vote for him but it shows a lot about human nature that people would ridicule him.For the democratic party to use him as a pawn to point out the republicans faults by publicly humiliating him is not humane. Basil deserves our kindness, even if he doesn't deserve our vote.

  19. I've reread all the comments. I don't believe all Democrats are making fun of him anymore than they have Palin, O'Donnell and many others. Just as Republicans take off on their opposition and not very kindly. Certainly he has a right to run but anyone who tosses their hat in the ring is inviting parady and satire, among other things. At least no one went after him for the color of his skin.
