Walken across America

| | Comments (4)

Christopher Walken, the actor, plans to run for President in 2008, and he has launched a campaign website. Is this a self-indulgent publicity bid? Is there some depth to his political thinking, or is he just another celebrity with an inflated sense of self-importance? This quote from his bio may be a clue:

Having residences both in rural Connecticut and upper-west Manhattan, he sees that all walks of life are becoming disgruntled and apathetic towards the American government, and feels a duty, as a child of the American public, to restore the peace, prosperity, and greatness of the United States.

Yes, you'll meet all walks of life in the Upper West Side and among the Connecticut country estates of the wealthy. He forgot to mention that he sometimes travels to Los Angeles and flies over the great heartland of our country, occasionally looking out the window for a second or two.

He stakes out positions (pretty much the mainstream media consensus positions) on only three issues (campaign finance reform, stem cell research, and military spending), but Ace has gleaned some additional platform planks from the characters he's played in the movies.

That's funny. It makes me think it's almost a hoax.

Can you imagine a presidential candidate more creepy-looking than Christopher Walken? Other than Michael Jackson?

Is it possible that poll numbers can go into negative territory?

heh.. I read that yesterday from Ace and laughed for quite a while. Funny stuff.

What killed me the most were the pearls of wisdom atop each of the pages. It's like somebody lifted some of SNL's old "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey" material.
