I think the whole Natalie Wood affair would sink his chances.

"...We need to think about improving our underbudget educational system, making better use of our resources, and helping to build a stable, safe, and tolerant global society..."
If this is a quote from Mr. Walken, I hope he meant to say under-funded educational system. Because most public schools wind up being over budget and engaging in deficit spending.

Although, I noticed that there wasn't actually any quote about running for office on the site that could be attributed to Christopher Walken.

Uhm, okay.

Age doesn't make it less distasteful, IMO.

Alternative tag-line: The way your dad looked at it, this watch was your birthright. He'd be damned if any of the slopes were gonna get their greasy yellow hands on his boy's birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable piece of metal up my ass for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you.

A Web site announcing Hollywood actor Christopher Walken plans to seek the U.S. presidency is a hoax, his publicist says.

I think any movie that has Christopher Walken in it is going to be twice as good as it would have been without him.

I suppose I do too, but for me it's a little like watching a car wreck. I can't bear to watch but I can't look away either [Smile]

Thanks for the reminder, Dave. It's been awhile since 'hearing' those lines and I'm still as torn over how to react now as I was then. But I laugh anyway!
