Presidential Frontrunner

Ladies and gentlemen, I have a confession to make.

I hope you won't be offended or disappointed by this, because I know many of you have spent months of your lives working on this campaign, and many others have spent a lot of money to help this campaign get where it is today.

But the fact of the matter is, here we are just five days from the election, and I suddenly realized something extraordinary. I simply do not want to be president. I know it's a little late in the game, considering the election is next week, and I'm leading in the polls by a good twenty percent.

The truth is, I just want to go home to Kansas and grow corn again. So please, please, please don't vote for me next week.

Thank you.
