In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt, Gary Johnson was asked whether he believes he could actually catch up with his opponents in the polls if given a spot on the debate stage (at 9 percent, he—along with Green Party candidate Jill Stein— failed to qualify for Monday’s debate).

“I do, and it wouldn’t have anything to do with my debate performance, either,” Johnson replied happily. “It would just be that people would recognize that there’s another choice.”


To demonstrate what a wonderful choice this would be, he then stuck his tongue out of his mouth and said something like: “I think I could stand up there for the whole debate and not say anything, and amulechuzovaleadah.”

Running for the highest office in the land seems like a real hoot!
