In a surprise move today, Mr. Mickey Mouse announced he would be standing for American president.
Sources close to the White House were concerned at such a dangerous and intelligent candidate, and so were Hillary Clinton and Obama Token, as neither of them has the brains or the experience that Mr. Mouse has.
Many are considering Mickey to be the 'new' Kennedy, or even the new 'Felix', or even the 'new' Vladimir Putin, i.e. someone who knows how to run a country.
Rumours that American democracy is dead have been strongly denied - three times, by CNN - but luckily, Walt Disney wasn't available for comment.
Bart Simpson's nomination was earlier rejected, due to him being too intelligent to be American president.
