Walken for President.


Finally, a candidate we can all really get behind. Campaign platform includes midnight Russian roulette programs, a national discussion on hiding watches and telling the U.N. they need more cowbell.
Update: Sadly, it's all a hoax.

Just think about how AWESOME his presidential address would be. Is this for real??

I love Christopher Walken, but for president?? How freaky. How surreal.

Like Stephanie, I ask... this is a joke right?

You never know with someone like Walken, but this appears to be serious. I signed up for the campaign newsletter, so we'll see what happens.
Maybe we can be campaign staff . . .

I'm in.

Imagine with Christopher Walken as president, do you think we would ever have a terrorist problem again?

Fatboy Slim could do all his campaign commercials.

After a terrorist attack, I would imagine President Walken going on TV and saying something like he did in the movie The Prophecy: "I'm an angel. I kill newborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. And from now till kingdom come... the only thing you can count on... in your existence... is never understanding why."
I'd sleep pretty good at night knowing he was on OUR side.

Stephanie,

I'm with you. Not a fan of the music, necessarily, but a huge Walken fan.

I've heard people say "but he doesn't know anything about politics"....

Maybe that's what we need.....

HA!

Right on. The Constitution says you only need to be 35 years-old and a natural born citizen. No other requirements.

I've searched around a bit on the internet and I can't find one "reliable" source to confirm this. But maybe Walken will read it and decide to himself, hey, maybe I will run for president.

Yeah, I've had trouble verifying it, too. It could be that he's letting someone else float the idea to gauge public reaction to it, or it could be a huge joke. It's fun to speculate either way, I guess.

If Walken isn't running, I turn 35 next year, so watch out!!
