“Save our state — vote Terry Tate.”

The slogan for the tongue-in-cheek candidacy of Speight as Tate, as posted yesterday on the Web site, www.terrytate.reebok.com, is “Save our state — vote Terry Tate.” Mr. Speight is an actor and former football player and wrestler who has worn Reebok apparel and shoes to portray Tate since the campaign was introduced during the Super Bowl in January.

Once elected, Mr. Tate will tackle white collar crime: “Y’all suckahs who don’t pay taxes and hang out on your Gucci yachts? With Triple T in charge, you know you gonna get caught.” Terry also commits himself to reducing overcrowding at schools, improving air quality, and eliminating “long-[expletive] coffee breaks— five minutes tops, or y’all gonna get clocked.”

And despite the risk inherent in being the top executive of the state, Terry stands alone among leading candidates in his pledge to realize the hopes and dreams of the voters of California without taking a vacation or a sick day. “Playin’ hurt? Baby, that don’t phase me. The only pain I got time for is the pain I put on fools who don’t know what time it is.”

Most importantly, a vote for Terry Tate is a vote for a better future for California’s children, families, and businesses: “I’m gonna govern the [expletive] out of this state. Believe that, California.”[Terry Tate, Office Linebacker]
