WingNutDaily: Mel Gibson for President

Stop the insanity! Some businessman is on a campaign to get Hollywood religious nut case Mel Gibson to run…ostensibly to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. What are the freeptards smoking out in Oregon? Oh, nevermind…
Inspired by Mel Gibson’s strong stand against the dehydration death of Terri Schiavo, an Oregon businessman has begun a campaign to see the “Passion” director run for president as a Republican in 2008, saying he’s the only potential candidate who has the star power and charisma needed to keep Democrat Hillary Clinton out of the White House.
“Mel Gibson is perhaps one of the few men in America who has shown exceptional courage in facing up to the left and the ‘culture of death,'” James Welsh told WorldNetDaily. “Americans of religious conviction have been under relentless assault for at least the last 10 to 15 years. While we have been successful in achieving some gains, our defeat in the Terri Schiavo battle has made manifest the need for new generalship in this culture war.”
In preparation for what he hopes will be a Gibson candidacy, Welsh has purchased 12 Internet domain names relating to a presidential run, including gibson2008.com.
Welsh, who owns a grocery store in the coastal town of Manzanita, Ore., believes none of the current crop of possible GOP contenders can beat Clinton, who he says “will be” the Democratic nominee.
Oh, and over in Freeperville, there isn’t complete agreement on this, but a good number think this idea is poppycock.
