Funniest candidates

Birdman sent me a very funny video of John McCain singing Barbara Streisand tunes – from Saturday Night Live, I think – which got me thinking about who might comprise the top ten funniest Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates of my lifetime.

Well, that is a tough one. I might have found ten if I had expanded the criteria to include the unintentionally funny (Spiro Agnew, Dan Quayle), but I wanted to keep it pure, which limited me to seven names. So here they are:

7. Ross Perot

6. Barry Goldwater

5. John Kennedy

4. Ronald Regan

3. Bob Dole

2. Harry Truman

1. John McCain
