In a presidential race dominated by candidates who look the part but have yet to prove much substance, Conan O'Brien has the perfect candidate that could beat them all: Ronnie Jancula, one of his stagehands.
Yes, after slapping a suit on Ronnie, Conan proves that his crew member could be an unstoppable political force and beat Pawlenty, Romney, Santorum and Bachmann if he wanted. With his towering stature and silver hair, Ronnie could be just the candidate that makes America believe again.
Unless, of course, he finds himself in a scandal that would take down even the most trusted politicians. After Ronnie is caught in a particularly lurid scandal involving a Ronald Reagan bong, Keith Olbermann lets his audience know exactly what he thinks of Ronnie. Only one man could bring life back to this campaign: "30 Rock" star and frequent O'Brien guest Jack McBrayer as Ronnie's running mate will make the public elect this man.
McBrayer, who memorably was the object of relentless antagonism by O'Brien in the new documentary "Conan O'Brien Can't Stop," last was linked to the political world when widespread comparison between McBrayer and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal quickly stunted Jindal's rise.
We don't know about you, but Ronnie/Jack in 2012 is a ticket we'd vote for.
