Clark to enter presidential race

Recommended Posts

Heh. When I first saw this, I thought it said "Click to enter presidential race". I was beginning to wonder if the presidential election was becoming as promiscuous as the CA governor election.

Sylvester Stallone: "Hold it! The Schwarzenegger Library?"
Sandra Bullock: "Yes, the Schwarzenegger Presidential Library. Wasn't he an actor ?"
