a truly frightening story

WASHINGTON – A disturbed Canadian man wants to try to get into the White House, according to reports.

The man, who was born in Calgary before drifting to Texas, has been spotted in Washington, D.C. in recent years exhibiting erratic behavior, sources said.

In 2013, he gained entry to the United States Senate and was heard quoting incoherently from a children’s book before he was finally subdued.

More recently, he was heard ranting about a plan to dismantle large components of the federal government, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the nation’s health-care program.

Despite a record of such bizarre episodes and unhinged utterances, observers expressed little concern about his plans to get into the White House, calling them “delusional.”

It's easy to dismiss the guy's chances, but GW Bush and Ronald Reagan each had two terms. Mad

@hawkeye10,
Borowitz writes a bit like the Onion. All his pieces are tongue in cheek.

@djjd62,
I'm not a religious guy...and I hate American conservatism with a passion.

So why do I find myself actually praying that he gets the nod for top of the GOP ticket?

@Frank Apisa,
Is it because you root for the underdog?
After all, you root for the Jints.

@DNA Thumbs drive,
always has been, always will be

every politician, and especially the leaders, in every country is disturbed, only a sociopath would take the job

It does indeed take all kinds to make the world go round. You folks that want to sanitize the human race should keep this in mind.

Diversity, not just a good idea, an imperative.
