The problem with T. Boone Pickens’ campaign to make America less dependent on foreign oil (a campaign that’s riled up NBC’s networks) is its reliance on T. Boone Pickens. I keep accidentally typing Slim Pickens while writing this—it’s driving me nuts! If T.B.P. wants to run for president, just run! Run like that other drawling rich guy Perot, and lose in the election like he did.
