Gracie Announces Her CandidacyMay 23, 2009
George: Coming down to the studio tonight I saw a big banner that said “Vote for Gracie.”
Gracie: Yeah, I know.
George: All over town I see billboards saying, “Put Gracie in the White House.”
George: It’s in the news reels. It’s in the papers…signs right here on the street saying, “Send Gracie to Washington.” What does this mean?
Gracie: Well, George, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m running for President.
George: You’re running for president?
George: Gracie, how long has this been going on?
Gracie: Well, for 150 years. George Washington started it.
George: Gracie, why are you running for president?
Gracie: Well, because that’s the only way you can get to the White House. You can’t just walk in and sit down.
George: The idea is preposterous.
Gracie: Not only that but it pays good money.
George: Look, you don’t stand a chance. Gracie, presidents are born.
Gracie: Well, what do you think I was: hatched?
George: Listen, there’s nobody who would be happier about your success than I would. But in the entire history of the United States there has never been a woman president.
Gracie: Yeah, isn’t it exciting and I’d be the first one.
