Another email, following the first, that arrived this evening:
In just five hours since being listed on eBay, the auctioning of the US Presidency has garnered a radio interview with NewsRadio 1110 KFAB in Omaha, Nebraska for broadcast on multiple stations tomorrow morning. It has also received its first bid of $20,000,000 from eBay user "fuzzypuffs."According to Mitt Romney's standards, it appears that there's a new top-tier candidate in the running. FuzzyPuffs for President, anyone?
eBay Auction: The United States Presidency
The presidency is for sale. Is it really?
UPDATE: It's getting some attention. A search on Google News turned up this post from the Washington Times — as well as this quote from Huckabee, which I hadn't remembered:
[Huckabee] accused Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, of putting a price tag on the race.
"He said if I don't raise $20 million by the end of this month, that I need to get out of the race. It was basically putting a throw-down in front of me, saying it was all about the money," Huckabee said. "The United States and the presidency is not for sale. If it was, we'd just put it on eBay and auction it off."
