Christopher Walken for President in 2008?

It is not a joke. He is going to run! I can't wait to see the ads. Hope Fatboy Slim does the music.

Yes, it is a semantically null query. I can see you access to soemthing that won't return a null because it is quite current. What is in Google is a mere shadow of want is possible. But it is a holostic shadow.

Could a mod tell us if this is the real Chris McKinstry? Because I'd think his ability to use Google queries and random tourist pictures to predict huge disasters would have enabled him to do a simple search for this:

Note the "it's not true" part.

There was a game that Dick described in Galactic Pot Healer where you take a book title translate it into Japanese (Dick was obsessed with the world being taken over culturally by the Japanese), and then translate it back into English and have the other player try and work out what the original title was.

The previous posting to this in this thread by young Christopher reminds me that same process, though I can't for the life of me work out what the original sentence in English might have been.

You know him as in biblically?

You know him because you wired him?

You know him because there's a restraining order on you not to approach closer than 100 yards?

You know him because he smiled at you in that special way in The Manchurian Candidate?

"The attack ads... that my opponents have been showing... are absolutely true.

I'm an angel. I kill newborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. And occasionally, when I feel like it, I tear little girls apart. And from now till kingdom come... the only thing you can count on... in your existence... is never understanding why.

Do you know how you got that dent, in your top lip? Way back, before you were born, I told you a secret, then I put my finger there and I said "Shhhhh!"

Whenever I'm on SNL, I'm so bad that it's painful to watch, yet you can't tear yourself away, and as I told James Lipton on Inside the Actor's Studio, I've been in show business for so long, that I have no grip on reality.

But ladies and gentlemen, let me tell you what I believe.

I asked myself, "Where would no one notice a town full of robots?" Connecticut.

Sicilians are great liars. The best. We have generations of great liars in our family. My own father was the world heavyweight champion of Sicilian liars. And he taught me that a man has sixteen different behaviors and mannerisms that give him away when he's lying. A woman's got twenty, but anyway... and if you know these like the back of your own hand, they beat lie detectors all to hell.

They call it the City of Angels. Funny. In my 30 years here, I haven't seen a single one.

So, in conclusion, vote for me for president because you're too chickenshit not to."
