In a triumph of the middling, a nod to mediocrity, and with gorge rising, it gives me great nausea to announce that yes,I am your new President;

As a winner I dedicate a sincere and heartfelt "fuck you!" to all losers.

I offer a government dedicated to self promotion;

This is a reversion to the mean, the nasty, the bigoted and the blinkered;
A demonstration of the power of the American Dream, reality TV and a solid advertising budget;
And will give hope to millions unfavoured by the exceptional, and a windfall to popcorn retailers.

The Vice Presidency, was once famously described as not being worth a warm bucket of spit; let's now bring the Presidency to the same unexhaulted level. Not the worst. Not the best. Just what you're stuck with.

Thank God Iím an American by birth. Amen.
