image for Next U.S. President Will Be Winner "American Idol" Style
Proposal Would Save Billions, Possibly Trillions

In a great move to save billions in campaign funds and free up all that time and money during the primaries, the U.S. Supreme has decided that it would make a lot more sense and be completely fair to run the next presidential race "American Idol Style".

"The winner will be the person with the most votes after 24 hours", stated Chief Supreme Court's Roberts. "We will put in place enough security to make sure that no one is voting twice and everyone who wants to vote and qualifies, must submit an application during the preceding year."

"Beginning at Six PM, EST, we will begin receiving votes authenticated by a group of one-third Democrats, Republicans and Independents which will then be rechecked by the Supreme Court itself."

Justice Thomas then said that there was a pubic hair on his microphone. Then he stated that during the election, there will be 15 minutes of Democrat commercials, 15 of Republican commercials, 15 minutes for Independent candidates and 1 minute for Ralph Nader, the most time he's ever had.

Apparently, the other 14 minutes will be showing updates on the totals and the Cowboy Cheerleaders to make sure everyone will pay attention.

The full 2,000 page proposal will be sent to the Senate floor tomorrow.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
