Michael Phelps for VP

I'm looking for a little leeway from the Constitution on this one.

Heretofore, the minimum age for VP was 35. Let's change it to.....I don't know....maybe 23? That way, we could have the greatest Olympic athlete of all time as the next Vice-President.

I sure as hell don't want to wait another 12 years before Phelps will technically be of age. So let's petition our congresspeople to do something about this serious obstacle to freedom and democracy.


The Vice Presidency would basically be the only silver medal he's ever received. So although he'll have to humble himself in order to accept this role. he should be able to handle the pressure. He won 2 bronze medals at the 2004 Athens games - but that's the equivalent of being Secretary of State, or some lame position like that. And we know he has little interest in foreign policy or diplomacy.

Phelps was born to straight-up kick some serious ass.

This young aquatic gentleman has proven he's unbeatable in 2008. Adding his name to the ticket would guarantee victory for Obama or McCain - whomever gets to him first.

I don't know if he's pro-life or pro-choice; pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian; pro-environment or pro-global warming; pro-war on terror or pro-al Qaeda.

And I don't really care.

All I know is that he's AWESOME at swimming, and seems like a pretty cool guy. So let's make sure he's only a heartbeat away from being Commander-in-Chief.

After all, couldn't be much worse than Bush.
