We've had a lot of unusual candidates for president this year, but perhaps none is stranger than Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who proposed an authoritarian, pro-tanning platform for president on tonight's season finale of the biggest hit show in MTV history.
Among Snooks' proposals are mandatory tanning laws for all Americans and a presidential edict banning all forms of music from radio other than "house." Her vice presidential nominee? Veteran political analyst Deena Nicole Cortese, of course.
"After I run for president, Deena's going to be my vice president," Snooki informed potential voters at the end of tonight's program. "I would get s--- done in this country. The economy would rise. Everyone would be tan. And all the radios would play house music."
It's strange, sure. But in an election cycle featuring Donald Trump as a "serious" candidate, a President Snooki doesn't sound so crazy.
