In a joint update, from the Hensen Creature shop, and Sesame Street, It seems that Kermit the Frog will NOT be a nominee, in the 2012 Presidential race.
In a prepared statement, Mr. Frog told a media gathering that his decision was NOT based upon politics, or his lack of previous, political experience. It seems that the issue is to do with the living quarters.
Being an amphibian, Kermit told the press corp that he thought that presidents had the option of where to relax, and sleep. When informed that the Secret Service would not allow the frog to rest in any of the White House fountains, Kermit decided to re-consider his bid for president.
In addition, none of the rest of the muppets wanted anything to do with politics, saying that they preferred the entertainment business over politics.
The final nail, in the coffin, of Mr. Frogs election bid, was a leaked memo, from Trump Enterprises, which included a proposal to drain the swamp, where Kermit was grown, and to build a $50 billion dollar casino, and a town, for casino workers to live in.
In order to protect the swamp, and be closer to his relatives, Kermit has bid "adeiu" to a possible, presidential bid.
