Christopher Walken for President

Christopher Walken announced his candidacy for POTUS on Tuesday, August 9, 2005.

Walken declines to identify with a political party in his FAQs, but then includes this line:

The risk of running early is that the support can boom too fast and die out by the time we hit the primaries. (emphasis added)

It doesn't take much decoding of his issue statements on campaign finance reform, military funding and stem cell research to glean that Walken is a Democrat.

I vehemently must oppose his candidacy.
And for the same reason I opposed Arnold's run for governor. I'd rather have these actors in hollywood making movies for me than dabbling in politics.

I hope Arnold doesn't run again. He was supposed to make a new Conan and Terminator 4. And Christopher Walken is simply an awesome actor who needs to keep getting great roles.

No position on Iraq
That's a non starter. The Democratic Party can't duck the Iraq war forever. How can anyone pretend to be a serious candidate and not have a position on the most important issue of the day?

It's just deadpan enough
that people will fall for it. As far as I can tell, however, there's only one Google News result on it. It's from World Net Daily, they didn't contact Walken, and even they indicate it might be a gag.

(Duh!)

if I called 650 Granite Staters
650 Dems and Dem-leaning independents and asked 'em to indicate their top three choices for POTUS in 2008 from this list:

Evan Bayh
Joe Biden
Phil Bredesen
Wes Clark
Hillary Rodham Clinton
John Edwards
Russ Feingold
John Kerry
Dennis Kucinich
Janet Napolitano
Ben Nelson
Ed Rendell
Bill Richardson
Brian Schweitzer
Tom Vilsack
Christopher Walken
Mark Warner

I'll bet Walken would be on more "top three" lists than a bunch of the traditional pols.

Of course, it would be based on name recognition. But that doesn't stop HRC supporters from talking up her name recognition.
