Kermit the Frog considering presidential "run"

Funny story written by Daniel Wolf

Sunday, 1 May 2011

In the days since Multi-millionaire Donald Trump has decided to begin pursuing the Republican Presidential nomination, it seems that more "takers" are coming out of the woodwork. But, who would have thought that a mild-mannered frog might decide to try its paw at White House politics.

It is known that Kermit DOES have management experience, including being the stage manager for the long-running "The Muppet Show", as well as running a boarding house, for him fellow muppets.

Although it is presumed that Kermit may have no college degree's, his resume does include a long history of negotiations, between muppets, between Muppets and humans, and so on. It has, also been verified, on "Extreme Makeover that Kermit is a licensed Excavator operator.

Should Kermit choose to run for Executive Office, there is the question of who his running mate might be. Front runners include comic Fozie Bear, and the very prominent Miss Piggy.

It is possible that Big Bird would take over the F.A.A., while "The Count who Counts", is being considered for the Treasury Secretary.

Of course, all of this is conditional upon Kermit being able to verify that, as a frog, he has reached minimum age. In human years, that would be 35 years old. The calculation may have to be revised since frogs do not live as long as humans. Kermit will also have to prove that the swamp he was hatched in is actually on U.S. territory.

According to a Muppet spokesperson, Kermits staff is in the process of finding all of the frogs documentation. The spokesperson has promised that Kermits decision, to run, should be made within the next few months.

This begs the question of: Can beings, like a frog, a pig, a bird, and even a vampire run this nation as well as career politicians?

The answer may be: Could Muppets do any worse, today, than a former movie star did, in the 1980's?

I guess that we will have to wait and see.
