    Walken runs for President!?

    Now I'm worried
    Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.

    Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!

    Hmmm... I think he sounds like Roosevelt or Truman maybe.
    Sounds like a Liberal though. Or is he a conservative prick like the others?

    Anyway.. I think it's stupid that campaigning in requires a fat bank account, or generous donations from corporations and other influential interest groups, to further their political causes and not the little guy. It isn't one bit democratic at all.

      Would he bring more cow bell to the nation if elected?

      I like him as an actor, but I know nothing about what he believes in. Is Walken really going to run? I really don't think any of the Hollywood actors would make a good president. I think more non politicians should have a shot at the office though. :)

        But is it a hoax? According to this blog it is.

          Well what about a "Worst Presidents" voting?
          That could be fun?

          I start with:
          G. Bush Jr.
          Calvin Coolidge
          Herbert Hoover

          Carter was a nice kinda guy but not a good president I guess.

            The worst probably must start with:

            - Franklin Pierce (GWB's ancestor, voted the worst president of all time)
            - Millard Fillmore (later affiliated with the "Know Nothing" Party)
            - James Buchanon
            - Herbert Hoover

            GWB is well on his way to joining that august company on his record so far.

            To really qualify as "bad," the president under discussion should at least have served a full term and have been elected. This disqualifies people like the ineffectual Ford and the questionable Harding.

            Most "bad" presidents are actually a mixture of good and bad to some degree, but *really bad* presidents need to have accomplished nothing at all positive during their tenures -- or at least nothing worth noting. Even "good" presidents aren't 100% successful, if one examines the record.

              I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Tricky Dicky yet.

                If Walken does run, a psychic named Johnny Smith will likely try to
                assassinate him. :D

                  The real question is: do we want a former James Bond villian as president? :lol:
