Britney Spears Launches 2012 Presidential Bid with Letterman Top Ten


It's always interesting to learn what celebrities' proposed platforms would be were they to run for public office. Brad Pitt recently told the Today Show that his mayoral campaign in New Orleans would run "on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform." Alec Baldwin, who's both teased and denied a Senate run, would nevertheless work tirelessly to push through his divorced dads' rights initiatives. And now we have Britney Spears on last night's Late Show with David Letterman, delivering ten campaign promises for her inevitable go at the White House.

That she did so in a bikini with a flower in her hair, legs crossed demurely on a glass-topped office desk in what looked to be a tragically appointed green room or a Marriott Business Suite only lent to her simple and direct speech's overwhelming effectiveness, pledging in it more coherent fiscal strategies, shock-and-awe air assaults of Mexico's top spring break destinations and Vice President Diddys for all.
