They’re quick, and slick, and insincere

During this time of political unrest, with candidates jostling for position, and flipping their stance on issues, wouldn’t it be nice to have a candidate who is truly hungry? A candidate who isn’t afraid of their softer side? A candidate who really thinks? A candidate who readily admits he’s stuffed with fluff? Well my friends, then look no further, I give you Winnie-the-Pooh for President!

This would not be his first battle for the White House. This resident of the Hundred Acre Woods (by way of Anaheim which makes him an eligible candidate), who loves kissing babies I might add, has run several times before. Pooh first ran for president as part of On Stage U.S.A. in 1968. Again he ran in 1972, complete with Winnie the Pooh for President Day(s) at Disneyland during October. In 1976 Pooh even had a running mate, Eeyore, whose ingenuity and calm nature would have been a fine addition. Sadly, Pooh’s runs always came up short, due mostly to the smear campaigns claiming he was addicted to Hunny.

With rival publications jumping on candidates’ band wagons with their editorial endorsements, the Main Street Gazette has chosen its candidate. Winnie-the-Pooh is our man, or bear, in 2008!

I'd vote him. But I would prefer The Mouse!
