Friday, July 31, 2015 – Snarky Friday – Millard Fillmore for President
My sister called me the other day and asked me if I was running for President of the United States. Since everybody else seemed to be running, she wondered if we should run. After a bit of discussion, we both decided against it. She said she is slow and did not want to move around that much. I do not care for a group larger than six. If the group is larger than that I usually have to take a chill pill. And a steady diet of road food would throw our gastro intestinal tracts into more chaos that usual. But we came up with another suggestion. Why don’t some of the old presidents run? Not Carter or Clinton or either of the Bushes. The old presidents. The dead ones.
Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution does it say the President of the United States must be alive. According The Constitution, one must be:
- Natural born – Born in the USA (B. Springsteen.)
- 35 years old
- A resident of the United States for 14 years.
We could bring back Abraham Lincoln. Maybe Eisenhower from the 1950’s since many appear to want to return to those golden (NOT) days of yesteryear. How about Franklin Roosevelt for the liberals? Maybe Teddy Roosevelt for the environmentalists? Maybe even George Washington himself. Why not? I am pretty sure many of the candidates today are brain dead any way. Most of the dead presidents have been a resident of and IN the United States for over 114 years.
If a presidential speech is needed, just use a hologram or some animatronics from Disney or Universal Studios.
My personal favorite for president is Millard Fillmore. He is the only one whose initials are actually MF.
Why aren’t all of the debates on The Comedy Network?
