Doubtless some of you recall Unreal's extended infatuation with University City resident and 2004 Republican Party presidential candidate Blake Ashby.

Well, he's back!

That's right. Ashby's back, and running for president again. This time he's broken ranks and will pursue the highest office in this great land as an independent.

But don't take your ol' buddy Unreal's word for it. Sit back and enjoy his four-minute manifesto, captured for posterity on YouTube:

Sweetest sound bite:

"I have lived in a lot of different places in my life, some good, some bad. in some of these neighborhoods, if someone came up to me and said some of the things the Republican Party is saying, my response to them would be: 'You must be smokin' crack. There is no way you can believe the words coming out of your mouth.'

"And the more I've thought about it, the more I realize that this is the problem: Crack-smoking Republicans have taken over the Republican Party."

If you're in the mood for a trip down memory lane, you can see each of the Many Moods here, and you can visit Ashby's 2004 campaign Web site,, here.
