Nutty Koran-burning pastor is running for president (yes, really)

News

Yes, it's true. Terry Jones, the man who ignited a firestorm (literally) when he made great fanfare out of burning the Koran, is seeking the American presidency. A few days ago, the New York Daily News reported:

The nutty pastor of a fringe religious group who sparked deadly riots in Afghanistan this year by burning the Koran announced Wednesday that he's running for president.

Terry Jones' campaign, Stand Up for America Now, issued a press release laying out his platform, which includes deporting "all illegals," bringing home all of the country's military personnel until America gets its economic house in order and reducing corporate taxes and bureaucracy.

Don't believe it's true? See his statement of candidacy, here. And read more about his plans (via the Daily News).
