Would Someone (Intentionally) Amusing Please Run for Office Here?

Ian Murphy, the guy who pranked Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, is running for the New York congressional seat vacated by Craigslist cruiser Chris Lee. I don't know if I'm optimistic for his chances as a Green Party candidate to take the seat, but at very least, the guy has enough of a sense of humor to wear a funny sweater and read his notes from his hand, while still retaining some vague principles of what he would do if he wins.

Still, this video makes me a little sad for the forthcoming, and likely wildly dull, city elections. Sure, Ron Asta's mayoral candidacy is good for a few ready-made steak jokes, but otherwise, the races so far are lacking in actual personalities. There's still time, people. Get out there and make me some funny videos to post.
