SIGN THE PETITION!: It's important (I might allow some SPAM)

Postby Minerva » Wed Jul 30, 2003 8:36 am

TONY for PRESIDENT!!

The petition to support our beloved holy supreme leader, Tony Blair, running the next year's presidential election in the USA has been on. I think everyone should sign here.

I was listening to a radio phone-in, and the majority seems to think it's fantastic idea. "They want him, we don't want him. It's win-win situation", one guy said. Unless, of course, Mr Bush Jr insists on swapping places with Tony....

LOL! That's brilliant! And yes, you're perfectly welcome to have Dubya. Though as I like the British, I'm more inclined to offer him to Mainland China. Best way to break apart their empire quickly into tiny pieces, you know. :)

I'll sign. After Bush, I admire anyone who can speak in complete sentences.

Err, I don't think he wants to come over here.... I hope, anyway. There's no oil to exploi... *ahem* awww, never mind. :o

Blair is definitely happier when he's abroad. So, being the president of USA will make everyone happy. :)

Only thing we have to worry is who'll be his vice-president? He can't have Maggie Thatcher, 'cause she can't make speeches any more, you know. :rolleyes: :D

A stubborn person in power is said to possess a will of iron. (And they called her "the Iron Lady.") Out of power, though, they're just cranky. Thatcher gripes and grumbles at everything, in on particular order.

Doctor's order. I can't remember the detail.

The announcement was received by great shock among hard core Tory supporters (including one T. Blair :p ), and by great cheers by 82% of the nation and Ian Duncan Smith, current Tory Leader. :D

Oh. I hope its not serious. I thought maybe she had had a stroke or some such (not a fate I would wish on anyone).

I have always liked Margaret Thatcher. I thought she was very well suited for her time and place in history. I only hope our first woman president is made of the same stuff as she was. :cool:

Hmmm...now why does this sound about right? I might be wrong, but I seem to recall she has had some serious health problems of late, and has recently lost her husband, Dennis, too. I can't say I liked Thatcher, but I did admire her take no nonsense attitude. She kissed no backsides ;)

And guess what! Since our good friend Senator Hatch is trying to pass a bill allowing people not born in the United States to be president, Mr. Blair just might have a shot at it. :D

Oh, no no no no no. ;) We already have far too much hidden collusion with private corporations and government white washes of responsibility. Let's not wish for yet another in that mold! :D

I am appalled by what I read. :eek: :confused: Surely you all jest.

Can't we have a petition to fost the pair of them off somewhere neutral (ish). How about them being Pres and Vice-Pres of Iraq? They could have a rotating term so each gets to be in charge. Their problem, they can go fix it.

Leaves the real jobs open for Arnold S and Sean C.

Well 'Ahnold' could very well be a contender for president if Hatch's bill passes. By the way, is anyone sure why Hatch is going for this? Is it for Arnold?
