Epidemic of Republican Presidential Candidates Shows No Signs of Abating


Chilling news from The Borowitz Report:

The number of official candidates for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination has risen to thirteen, according to officials at the Centers for Disease Control…

“It might have been misplaced optimism on our part, but we had started to believe that this thing had been contained,” said the C.D.C. spokesman Dr. Harland Dorrinson. “Regrettably, it has not.”

While scientists disagree about how running for President spreads from person to person, most epidemiologists believe that a candidacy needs an environment rich in narcissism and delusion—plus a host to feed on, ideally a sociopathic billionaire.

When I contacted the author regarding this disturbing information, he responded:

You were my target audience for this one.

Does this mean he makes up the news on his site?

I’m shocked to hear that.

    And that’s just the OFFICIAL candidates. Some, like Christie, are still in the prodromal phase. Any plans for developing a vaccine?
