PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An outspoken 78- year-old is campaigning to become the oldest freshman in Congressional history.

Stan Cotton is running for 45th district Congressman of the Palm Springs, California, area.

He’s “cranky as hell” about the ongoing “greed and corruption” of America and wants to finally change things.

If elected, Cotton says he’ll be the most annoying Congressman ever, using the soapbox to drive home key issues.

The self-proclaimed “pain in the a” plans to relentlessly speak his mind about big topics like campaign funding reform and protection of senior citizen rights.

Cotton says he just wants to get his ideas out there and isn’t “in it for the long haul.”

He figures he’ll only last one term in office anyway because he’s always been self-employed and doesn’t take crap from anyone.

Cotton plans to raise campaign funds by selling special “Buy Back America” postage stamps, a business he believes could raise $30 billion.
