Naked Cowboy for President?

Why not? It’s a free country.

The Naked Cowboy, as you probably know, generally hangs out in Times Square playing a guitar while wearing only briefs, boots and a cowboy hat.  He has also appeared here two or three times, once when he sued the company that makes M&Ms (they dressed M&Ms up the same way), and more recently because of a cease-and-desist letter he sent to the Naked Cowgirl.  Last week, he held a press conference (also in Times Square) to announce he had decided to run for president.

The Cowboy, also known as Robert Burck, said that he was a member of (can you guess?) the Tea Party movement, and had registered as a Republican in Ohio.  He said he was running “in defense of individual liberty” and supported tax cuts, free markets, immigration reform, and a number of other disappointingly serious-sounding issues.
