Fast food icon Ronald McDonald shocked the political world today by announcing his intention to seek the Republican nomination for president in the 2012 election. Early poll numbers have been impressive, as Mr. McDonald’s celebrity quotient and name recognition are off the charts.
Political analyst Robert Blake says, “Basically, no one can beat this guy on his celebrity, now that Liz and Michael are dead and Tiger is on the ropes. Maybe Oprah could do it if she was interested, but hey, this guy’s got the numbers!”
Major GOP leaders say they are interested in his candidacy, and representatives of the evangelical right say that some of his previous indiscretions can be overlooked and that he has changed on some major policy positions. Also he is working on overcoming earlier allegations that he is “a clown.”
