I hate this book and I hate Railrunner and I hate Thunderbark and I hate Black Magic and I hate everything they stand for.

http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/341269-campaign-committee-for-dwayne-the-rock-johnson-filed-with-fec posted:


A campaign committee has formally filed to draft actor and former WWE wrestler Dwayne The Rock Johnson for president.

Run the Rock 2020, the name of the official organization, was filed on behalf of Johnson with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) on Sunday, according to FEC records.

The paperwork was filed by a man named Kenton Tilford under a West Virginia address. Tilford's connection to Johnson and his motivation for filing the organization is not clear.

Johnson has long joked about a White House bid, playing a buff Obama on "Saturday Night Live" and standing in front of podium labeled The Rock Johnson 2020 on the show in May. But he revealed earlier this year that his run is a real possibility.

In an interview with GQ in May, he spoke about how he would take on Trumps policies, adding that he would like to see better leadership, responsibility and poise from the Oval Office.

The actor spoke at the Republican National Convention in 2000 and attended the Democratic National Convention the same year. He has said that he is registered as an Independent.


Would the Rock make a good (for a given value of "good", taking into account Trump's garbage fire presidency) US President?

What new catch-phrases will he come up with during his campaign rallies?

How many Presidents in a row could the US elect who had taken a Stunner from Steve Austin?

The Rock is a mixed race republican. He'd be awful but competent, as opposed to awful and openly proving his own corruption.

Rock heard that America wanted some strudel



*fast forward to the inauguration*

"Now, you pieces of trash, you work your candy asses off day after day after day 9 to 5 for minimum wage. Well, The Rock did what The Rock had to do to get to the top of the world and that is him standing smack dab in the middle of the Corporate White House, your United States President."

Happy Birthday, Mr. President

Am I the only one that thinks it's a bit too soon? Will the American people trust a man with no political background at all TWICE? If Sanders runs then it will be a uphill struggle but a Sanders/Rock VP ticket sounds both insane and a good call at the same time. They can be called The People's Champions. I can see maybe 2024 or something but on the other hand it's the freaking Rock.

Or maybe.. Just maybe.. Jesse Ventura and The Rock.

What has happened to your political system.

Yes, because insane celebrity actor Republicans as President have led to fantastic results in America, and not a single war crime at all.

TOO EASY

I suppose the precedent for an entertainer as President was set by Reagan, not Trump, so it's not like it was unheard of before 2016 anyway.

Besides, Trump's connection to WWE was a guest spot, so it's not quite Idiocracy yet. President Camacho was the Ultimate Smackdown Champion, so The Rock would be his direct allegory. We're just that one step away from a chain burger joint called Buttfuckers.

That's the thing, he absolutely believes that hard work will always pay off and the welfare state is just holding people back from realizing their dreams. Wealth is a disease.

More and more history has shown that the Reformation was a mistake and that the bullshit Puritan/Protestant work ethic has infected this country to its core; clearly my ancestors didn't do enough in the 30 years war.

He's a white middle class suburban Massachusetts boy, became rich, openly hero worships his boss the best friend of Trump and has dozens of vintage cars.

Despite being a Republican, he'd have to run as an Independent, right? GOP will just want to reelect Trump (or whoever's in office at that point).

I can't see Demos taking him, unless the last election broke them so badly they'll fight a celebrity with another celebrity.
