If He Were President, He’d Start Running on Friday, Get Banned from Running on Saturday

Yesterday People.com (!) broke the story (!) that Wyclef Jean, already banned from running for president in Haiti, finally officially withdrew from the race.  (!) And last night, Comedy Central ran the season two pre-2004-election Chappelle’s Show featuring Wyclef’s “If I Was President.” It was a simpler time then, wasn’t it? Audio above, without video from the broadcast. We’ll get into was vs. were another time.

Not yet, Virginia. Not yet.
