Just when you thought it wouldn’t be harder to find a presidential candidate goofier than Donald Trump. And yet, someone has found him. Deez Nuts is one of many declared presidential candidates lining up for consideration in November. He joins my favorite candidate, Louisville house cat Limberbutt McCubbins, as one of many people to file a statement of candidacy for consideration for the office of the President of the United States.
Deez Nuts and Limberbutt McCubbins aren’t the only odd presidential candidates. After all, so far, 512 people have filed statements of candidacy, including 80 Democrats, 127 Republicans, 135 independents, 12 Libertarians, and 15 people who gave no party affiliation, not to mention all the other strange fringe parties that some people might just be making up. Of course, none of these folks really have a shot at winning anything, but it’s nice to be considered for nomination, and it’s a great way to get your own Wikipedia page if you’re currently without one.
Of course, there’s always the horrifying reality that you might win, but for most of these 512 candidates, that’s a fortunate pipe dream.
