New York City's own Naked Cowboy announced Tuesday that he would be running for President in 2012 on the National Tea Party Ticket. He claims he has a plan for America and it does not include room for liberals.
Sarah Palin immediately tweeted her approval and said that she wanted him on top, no doubt about it. "He is everything our beloved Tea Party epitomizes, she tweeted, well, actually what she tweeted was "r u sur? I mean, nudty?" But then when she heard his promises, like backing illegal immigration reform, doing away with bilingualism in America, cutting all taxes especially to the rich and kicking the Taliban's ass, she re-tweeted "I stnd by my origl tweet. Gd Lk Bob, or whatever ur name is."
His name is actually Robert Burck and though he has been a highly visible busker on New York City streets for a couple of decades now, he hails as a Republican from Ohio and he has all the earmarks of a Republican. His father is a long-time 'career' politician. Asked why Burck is doing this, he simply said "I believe in free enterprise. I don't believe in giving out welfare. Look at me, I'm not on welfare, I get my money the old-fashioned way, I beg for it."
Burck, or the Naked Cowboy, believes that his high profile will be a big boon in getting the voters to turn out and vote for their individual freedoms. Unfortunately, if Wednesday's impromptu announcement to see the details on his webpage is any indication (he and fellow busker Naked Cowgirl tried to get a press conference going but it failed to materialize), he may have his work cut out for him. But, he's used to getting a little here and a little there and knows in the long run that just like pennies, dimes and nickels, every vote counts.
