That wascally wabbit…

For more than 275 years, this nation has upheld a strong tradition of selecting as its leader one individual of character, fortitude, and an innate ability to make people like and follow him; someone with the ability to communicate to the masses, and yet not lose sight of the little man. Only 43 men have held this supreme Executive Office, and some debate whether only a man is up to the task. May I submit one Bugs Bunny. Some may laugh. Some may scoff. Some may run around the room jumping up and down yelling “Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo!” *ahem* Some may lack dignity. Still, I believe that Mr. Bunny possesses all of the strengths and qualities desirous of our nation’s president, and am certain that he could win the majority of the vote if ever he were nominated and willing to accept such a burden.
Of course, when examining a candidate for Office, one must go back and look at the individual’s past. Where does this individual come from? What is his military experience? What has he done that is of merit? What has he done that is tainted with scandal? In answer to these questions, we must go back to 1940, Burbank, California. Bugs’ humble beginnings saw him meet for the first time Mr. Porky Pig, who was attempting to hunt him. Bugs managed to escape and in fact get the better of his worthy opponent using his wits alone (and possibly a large mallet.) Since that time, we have seen Bugs think his way out of many sticky situations that would have left a lesser man bereft of all reason, broken and hollow like a chocolate rabbit on Easter Monday. Using his quick wit, sense of humor, and amazing abilities to think outside the box, Bugs has managed to avert disaster, save his own skin, champion his friends’ causes, and even save the earth from immanent disintegration. He is an obvious hero. Does that make him a good president, though?
Part of Bugs’ strength lies in his communication skills. He is able to speak easily with anyone, at all levels of society; be they kings, lowly peasants, or even gorillas. He also has no qualms about speaking to a larger audience, and his ease with the masses is part of his appeal. He also chooses wisely what causes he will champion— during WWII, he spoke out to encourage this nation in the war effort, and did much to bolster morale during those trying times.
His politics are simple, it seems. He cares for the oppressed and downtrodden, and has been known to declare war when pressed too far. But he does not jump quickly or thoughtlessly into the fray. Bugs has demonstrated time and again that he would rather remain peacefully in his snug rabbit hole than take on an adversary. It is only after it has become apparent that his adversary’s persistence will not be ignored and that a peaceful resolution cannot be met that the words are uttered: “I suppose you know, this means war!”
Bugs is also untainted by greed. When faced with the potential for uncounted wealth, Bugs has always been nonplussed. He would rather have his humble hole and a few carrots. Such humility and meekness are almost unheard of in the political arena, and it would be refreshing to replace the fat cats with a trim rabbit.
But what skeletons are lurking in Bugs closet? What scandals may taint his good name? True, he has been known to dress in drag… but then, so did J. Edgar Hoover—and that never seemed to affect his ability to do a good job. There have been some cries of racism, but each isolated incident in question should be viewed within the context of the times and intent. Bugs has a track record to prove his ability to like and be liked by all. The fact that he cares for so many, regardless of age, station, class, gender, or species has contributed to his mass appeal, and made him an international icon.
All in all, his character and strong moral fiber, his problem solving skills, and his good judgment about how and when to act in a conflict are all qualities that one must consider when casting the vote for the presidency. One can only hope that such an individual might step up to the weighty task, and fill the … very… large shoes that Bugs would require.

You scored 42 Aggression, 85 Sophistication, and 85 Optimism!
|You have all the sophistication and charm one would expect from such a high-class hare. Very upbeat and generally laid-back, you are remarkably calm and peaceful even in the midst of the most stressful of situations. On those rare occasions that your anger is aroused, your retaliation usually results in embarrassing the aggressor and laying-bare how foolish he or she really is — rather than doing any real harm. You likely have many friends and more than a few admirers and would make an excellent leader, if you had any interest in being one. But, being a leader would require hard work and attention to detail, both qualities you are lacking in. In fact, if you are not careful, your laid-back attitude will often lead you to drift through life completely oblivious to the changes happening around you. You also tend to have a horrible sense of direction.|
