Next it’ll be Dustin as presidential candidate

WHERE – or more importantly when – will this ego-trip fest end? We are faced daily with so-called celebrities saying they have been approached by untold hordes urging them to stand for the presidency. Has-beens and wannabes abound in their conviction that they are the right person to represent the country.

Will they and their backers please realise that a career in TV or other media may have given them exposure, and in a few cases affection, but this is being confused with the ability to be President. We are fast approaching the point where Dustin, who probably has more going for him than some of the rest, will be a credible nominee.
