2008-07-03 18:39:23.999448+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

In response to the hullabaloo over General Wesley Clark saying of John McCain "I don't think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.", David Rees runs down a list of things that might qualify you for various offices:

Getting really, really drunk at Thanksgiving and crying, "Why was I never good enough for you, Dad?" and then literally eating a banjo, and then saying, "Am I man enough NOW, Dad? Now that I've eaten my banjo-- the one thing I loved, the one thing you could never understand?": QUALIFIES YOU TO BE CHAIRMAN OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE.
