Movie actors, anyone?

I'm convinced at this writing we are desperate for a presidential candidate and willing to accept almost anything---as long as it's someone who has a political resume.

What about the opposite tack? Running a political newbie for office who is a world famous celebrity? Because frankly I don't see any career politicians in the public eye who look like they could wake the voters, let alone the brain-dead mainstream media, from a deep slumber.

The name Jesse Ventura keeps coming up. What political resume does Ventura have? He was governor of Minnesota. What political resume did he have before that? None. He was a movie actor and ex-wrestler.

What political resume did Schwarzenegger have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor and ex-bodybuilder.

What political resume did Reagan have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor, and president of the Screen Actors Guild.

At least with governor, it seems to be an open door.

There are stars out there who are not members of the Hollywood Left.

Reality check:
Just for the record, his political career included -
Mayor of Brooklyn Park
Following his departure from the WWF, Ventura took advice from a former high school teacher and ran for mayor of Brooklyn Park, Minnesota in 1990 on the Independent Party ticket.[9] Ventura successfully beat the city's 18-year incumbent mayor and served from 1991 to 1995.[10] Between 1995 and his run for governor, Ventura had radio call-in shows on (KFAN 1130) and (KSTP-AM 1500) in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

Good first step. Anyone willing to take a second?

Tom Selleck is the best

Tom Selleck is the best suggestion I've heard.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Tom_Selleck_2004.jpg

-He does have some political experience, as a Board member of the NRA.

-He describes himself as a "libertarian" in interviews.

-Well-spoken, level-headed.

-Tall, broad-shouldered, and handsome. Has hair on his head.

-Will be in an acceptable age bracket in 2012 (mid to late 60s).

I think he has definite possibilities, and his pro-gun rights activism will be a HUGE plus after four years of Obama.

I'm old fashioned...

doesn't matter if its a man or woman.....but the commander in chief should have had a leadership role in the service.

jesse was also a navy seal. kinda clinches it for me.

I just mentioned the Navy

I just mentioned the Navy SEAL part also. Having a "real" military guy run with a Libertarian view of the military would be spectacular.

You're not looking very hard

You're not looking very hard if you feel the only viable candidates should be a celebrity...That's all America needs, another celebrity icon. Maybe you can have a new reality show "Star Search for President" I'm sure that should more than appease the masses rather than wake them up!

Come up with

some names.

These boards are going to shit. We need good information, not Entertainment Tonight. WTF?

If a Celtic nation you are after, I'd pick Cymru (Wales)

....(one of) my ancestral homeland.

But Brittany? Eh.

I got one:

Charles Manson

Now hear me out.

He's got plenty of experience in the judicial system.
He has a following
He has potential VP friends. (Tex comes to mind)
He can fill his cabinet in a snap
He would absolutelt repeal all drug laws
And I'm pretty sure all gun laws would go away.

He's got nothing to do for --- say --- oh --- 100 years.

What do you think?

I like Selleck-Johnson or Johnson-Selleck best so far(that might change though once I find out more about them, because I don't know enough about their positions right now).

If he'll hire me as image

If he'll hire me as image consultant, I'll help him. He needs one if he wants to win.

Also a speechwriter. I can do that too.

So

Obama is Kenyan.

And he supposedly renounced

And he supposedly renounced his US citizenship at some point when he became an Indonesian citizen (dual-citizenships were forbidden there at the time). At least that is what has been reported on a number of websites covering the issue.

...

ok

So I see truth and reason are not viable debate strategies here.

Hey let's run Prince Charles he'll never be King - he might settle for
president.
