Have you ever had a hankering to run for president? Well, now you can do it — for just $99.
It’s sort of like trying out for American Idol, it seems. You don’t have to be able to sing, though. You just need a platform and $99 entry fee. The finalists are going to compete on national television — just like American Idol.
I don’t think it’s a gag. It seems like a real effort to get people to plunk down money. But I find myself thinking that someone must’ve dreamed this scheme up while watching “Idiocracy.”
