It doesn't sound possible. How can seriously past it actors have top level government positions?. They might as well make a bodybuilder governor of one of the bigger states, it's just as ludicrous. Plus he is black, no way could he ever be president.

What we need is an Asian president. They're smarter than white people.

first you need a 'really black president'. I am just waiting for the first 'community activist' to claim that B.Obama's presidency was doomed to failure because he was not black enought. Some white guy must have peed into his gene pool! They will scream. And white males are at fault for everything wrong in the world and never ever did anything right. All important inventions were invented by black guys!

A couple of years and you will get to hear that. Enjoy the show.

If I run, I'll win by a landslide. Why? Since I'm a South Asian, the southern states of America will vote for me showing solidarity, while the Democrat heavy state will vote for me because I'm Asian and wouldn't want to be called racists.

Win, win.

sounds reasonable. Have you called Hawaii for your fake birth certificate?

A smart person is one who learns from other people's mistakes. I've called Dallas, TX for a birth certificate instead.

I've heard it's pretty easy to get one in Florida, Louisiana, and New Mexico (in addition to Hawaii).

New Mexico is mostly smelly because we don't get enough rain to rinse the stink off.

New Orleans gets lots of rain, thank God, although there's still a greasy, waxy layer of scum on everything. All cities are like that to some degree, though.

The wind matters too, when it comes to stink. Cities stink because humans and their activities and waste stink. That's why the East and South sides of most American cities are the shitty parts; it's downwind, and nobody wants to live where it's stinky and polluted.

Most of the stinky industries were located in the downwind parts of cities to being with, cities have continued to expand downwind of them. People who can afford to live upwind.

So maybe it's not that that the poor stink, maybe it's that poor have to live where it stinks (although the cooking and eating of "strange" foods by immigrants and the lower standard of sanitation affordable to the poor probably contributes to this). Half of Miami smells like the alley behind a Cuban restaurant.
