Any Freepers Want to be President?
Showtime ^ | today | me

Posted on 03/31/2004 9:03:46 AM PST by Feiny

Showtime is looking for people with a vision for America to compete on its' newest reality show AMERICAN CANDIDATE.

Check out the website for all the info. I think it would be a shame if there were no freepers competing.

No, I am not auditioning.....I can't take off work for 7 weeks. But, they are paying $500 per week....and the winner gets $200,000.

Fear not. I sent in my application on February 18. They have acknowledged receiving it, and I expect my initial home page to be up on their site within a week.

They already have a bunch of submissions....some may be freepers. You can check out who is running and vote for who you'd like to see make the final cut for the show.

I just thought it was a great idea for a reality show. Better than marrying a midget.

Since this is a Viacom project, I suspect that any Conservative, Moderate, or anyone else not toeing the line on the Socialist Agenda will be shown in a bad light.

Do I want to be president? Not only no, but HELL no.

Though I confess it would be fun to get to know about all of the various black-world projects.

I'd gladly be the first French President of the United States, but my spin doctors tell me it's not the right moment to announce my candidacy.

Heck, damn those advisers, elect me just to beat John Kerry to it !

If I were president I am fairly certain the world would be a smoldering ball of ash by the end of my first week in office. I think I'll pass. : )

What is your REAL name so we can vote for you?

I would prefer not to publicly identify my real name under my existing FR handle. Once my home page is up, I will either set up a new FR handle or rely on a friend to use his handle in order to formally announce my candidacy and direct all my fellow freepers to the appropriate site.

I filled out the app and was about to send it in with the video....and then I got to thinking:

I've done some wild things in my youth (lame, by today's standards), I have one major (I think so) skeleton in my closet, and being a reality show, I was afarid this stuff would be brought up.

I fear losing the respect of my children and my peers at work.

Let's see:

Compromise my core principles to attract a broader electorate...

Endure a never-ending rectal exam complements of the press...

Gladhand a continuing procession of congresscritters and other undesirables to push legislation...

Live with giant bullseye on my head for every whacko in the world...

Assume responsibility for every disaster, God- or manmade, that occurs during my term...

Sure...why not?

I don't think the public will care about the arrest. However, they will care if the you were there to see a lame-o band. 8^)

I wonder how the religious right will react to the fact that I went to a Motley Crue gig in 1982?

The American President is one of the most constrained citizens. He has the duty to sign or not sign bills approved by others, but beyond that he can do little more than anybody free to walk on the street can do. Of course he can speak in public a lot, which for some like Clinton is all they want to do anyway.

Actually, they originally did require that applicants be over 35.

They had an initial deadline of February 23, which I busted my hump to meet given the length of my application. I met the deadline, only to discover shortly after that they extended it to April 9, and had expanded eligibility to everyone over 18.
