So You Think You Can Be President

A new hyper-reality television show where candidates compete in front of a live studio audience for American votes!"

The pressure is on as contestants present their positions on a range of social and political issues then face the hard-hitting scrutiny of our panel of judges. The audience at home will delight as contestants are challenged in ways never seen before on the airwaves.

The mainstream media's spectacle of American democracy reaches new heights but this time with a twist. Contestants on our program are in for a surprise: our panel of experts doesn't exactly play by the prescribed rules of television. Unlike the corporate news media of today, which often coddles leading politicians, our judges grill each candidate on their policies with hilarious and unexpected results.

In this week's episode only two weeks before the election, Senator Obama and Senator McCain have their feet held to the fire over shockingly similar positions on both energy and foreign policy.

Who will be this season's champion and take home the grand prize? You'll have to watch and decide that for yourself, then participate by casting your vote* for your favorite performer on November 4th!
