Christopher Walken Wants to Be President (? continues)

Well, it seems to be true, Christopher Walken is running for president. Maybe he will be the Democratic answer to Reagan. While I didn't see anything about a political party on his website, he sure doesn't sound like a Republican. I mean Republicans don't care about the issues that he's talking about:

"Our great country is in a terrible downward spiral. We're outsourcing jobs, bankrupting social security, and losing lives at war. We need to focus on what's important-- paying attention to our children, our citizens, our future. We need to think about improving our failing educational system, making better use of our resources, and helping to promote a stable, safe, and tolerant global society. It's time to be smart about our politics. It's time to get America back on track."

UPDATE: I should have credited Talkleft with this story (wrote in haste). I resisted posting about this for days, thinking it was a hoax, then I saw it on two A-lists (Instapundit too) and figured it was real. A-listers have time to check these things out, I reasoned. Maybe not. The Technologist argues it may be a hoax; it sounds like he should know for sure soon. Well, hey, at least I didn't post about the 'Bush Indicted' hoax.
