In an announcement that shocked political pundits from Cleveland to Cairo, Rep. Dennis Kucinich threw his hat into the ring in a bid to become the new President of Egypt. At a press conference underneath a rainbow near a pot of gold--Kucinich made the case for his campaign:
Look, I want to be the president of something. I ran for President of the United States, of the Dustin Diamond fan club and of our fantasy football league. I lost every race.During an emotional pitch at a press conference inside a Stuckey's restaurant in Dayton Ohio, Howard Dean pulled no punches:
But this time I have an ace in the hole. Howard Dean agreed to be my running mate. Once we win this election and I am the Egyptian President, people will look to Egypt as the Cleveland of the Middle East.
Dennis and I are not only going to Suez, Tom Harkin. We're going to Taba and Luxor and Aswan and Girga. Then we are going to Helwan and Port Said and up the Nile to Cairo, to take back the Abdeen Palace...Yeah!!!Kucinich went on to say that he is going to run on his pet issue--bringing the Fairness Doctrine to Egypt (note to Rachel Maddow, this is satire).

Hope he checked with Mrs. Kucinich first...it’s a pity to waste that eye candy under a burka.
Well, if for some reason she doesn’t want to go, she’s welcome to stay with me.
But Dennis, you are without doubt the biggest embarrassment for a city that lacks for nothing in creating hilarity and incredulity in the rest of America.
