The New Yorker’s Alex Siquig has written the hilarious Ask King Richard III: A Political Advice Column, where American Presidential candidates seek Richard’s advice. Our favourite:
Have you ever seen someone dominate an election like this? I would have curb-stomped Reagan. I am more popular than Mussolini ever was. I am significantly taller than Jesus.
