Actor Christopher Walken For President In 2008!

Thu Aug 18, 2005 11:29 pm

When I read this humorous article in the paper (6 paragraphs down, under 'foreign Affairs');
www.guardian.co.uk/g2/story/0,3604,1551146,00.html

I assumed it was a joke, but looking at this site perhaps not?

www.walken2008.com

Come to think of it, imagine the savings in Pentagon toys that you could realize, by having a Commander In Chief who could, with great menace, stare, unblinking, into the eyes of an enemy, they'd shit themselves!

Had an 'actor' President before, OK, he played straight man to a chimp, but with Walken you'd have an actor who could.....well, really act.

Fed up at seeing Bush with that cocky walking gait of his, knowing he can barely walk and talk in any depth at the same time?
Well Walken could dance on and off Air Force One! Spike Jonze could do his election campaign videos!

Hell, if there is actually even half serious talk of changing the constitution (ssshhh, don't tell the NRA, they're paranoid enough anyway), to allow the foreign born 'Governator' Arnie to run, why not a better actor, who can articulate properly (unlike Bush, unlike Arnie), who was actually born in the USA?
(Cue Springsteen song).

Walken would be a true 'Washington Outsider', he'd cut government costs by doing much of the White House cooking himself!
He's rich, but he earned it, unlike the born into wealth incumbent.

So yeah! Go Walken!
You know it makes sense.

Be great for us Brits too, in that James Bond has already beaten him once, and we could threaten to send him back over unless he did what we wanted him to.

Does that mean barking-mad Grace Jones would be his vice President then ?  Wink

Great idea! He has a certain Kennedy-like quality. (Ted) Kennedy killed Mary Jo Kopechne, Walken played a role in the death of Natalie Wood. He comes pre-scandaled!

His curriculum vitae is a bit of a black hole, and his resume seems to be limited to dancing and pretending to be someone else, but I think he has the makings of a great "leader of the free world."

I also notice that he doesn't push drug testing for elected officials.

He has already come out to say this is completely false, and it seems to be either a prank or a wild nightmare.

He'd make a fairly lousy president, but he does tapdance ok.

I'll support him for prez only if he agrees to wear those sharpened teeth he had on in Sleepy Hollow every time he has to give a speech or meet with foreign diplomats.

I changed my sig after finding out about the site the other day. Even if it is a hoax, it's a pretty damn clever thing! Even if he isn't running, he'd probably be a better choice than what the Dems and the GOP have in store for us in '08.

"Max Zorrin" for President...hmmm....well...keep him away from Silicon Valley... rotfl 

He's a great actor, no doubt about it. But a politician? Don't think so.
And the winner for best actress is....REESE WITHERSPOON for 'Walk the Line'!!!!!!!!

But most are poor formulaic impersonations.....you know who does the best one IMHO? Kevin Pollack, the actor and comedian. Classic stuff.

Walken himself has acknowledged it.

first of all it is FrankenstEIn (NOT ...stien). and then whenever Frankenstein did NOT scare you, possibly your acting president DID ?

Quoting StevenUhl777 (Reply 16):

well, in 1980, your nation elected a great actor, and many people in your country were (and still are) heavily impressed by his act . It is simple, old actors can talk nonsense in a convincing way !

This is an inside joke to anyone in the US that listens to the Bob and Tom radio show.

Oh, and forgive me for offending you by not using the spell check. I didn't realize Jesus Christ was proof reading these posts.   

And for the record, yes, my acting president does scare me.

He does it in The Aristocrats and while trying to tell the joke as Christopher Walken, he keeps cracking himself up. It's a pretty damn good impersonation; Jay Mohr's is pretty good as well, like in that one Simpsons episode when they go to the book fair and Walken (voiced by Mohr) is reading "Goodnight Moon" to the little kids (Goodnight room. Goodnight Moon. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon." Please, children, scootch closer. Don't make me tell you *again* about the scootching. You in the red, chop-chop.)
