"If you want to learn how to build a house, build a house. Don't ask anybody, just build a house" - Christopher Walken
haha...those quotes are great
saw this on some page, I guess its a hoax.
To bad, I love that man.
Christopher Walken 2008 is a Hoax
When I first stumbled on this site http://walken2008.com/index.html I have to admit I was excited about it. I have no idea where Mr. Walken stands on the issues that are important to me, but the thought of watching him mentally disassembling some other candidate in a debate is just thrilling. I don’t know if he would have a snow balls chance in hell but it would be fun to watch regardless. Unfourtanetly my skeptical mind took over and I felt the need to dig a little to find out if this was even for real or not. Here is why I believe this to be a hoax (although a really good one)
1)All of the images of Walken can be found on other websites. Most of them show up with simple a Google image search.
2)A who is look up returned the following data:
Administrative Contact: Strickland, Richard
PO Box 1180
Destin, Florida 32540
I tried calling the number several times to speak with the admin, the number has been disconnected. I doubt any legitimate web designer that was lucky enough to be contracted for such a major project would have a disconnected phone
3) The press release for this site states that a press conference was held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York on August 9. I attempted to call the front desk of the hotel to confirm this. They would not to do so, but they did refer me to the PR section of their corporate offices. The fact that there had allegedly been a press conference and that the only mention of this announcement any where in the main stream news is linked to walken2008 site is very telling. The conference was held 2 days before the site launched, if it was real then I am sure we would have heard about it somewhere else in that time.
4) In the bio page there is a reference to the famous cowbell skit from SNL, to me this reeks of fanboyism.
Now, I could still be wrong, and this could be for real but I doubt it. Monday, I plan to call the IRS and see if there is any record of the non profit “Christopher Walken for President” that allegedly paid for the site. I am by no means a campaign finance expert but, to my knowledge such groups have to register with the government and that information should be public record. In closing I would actually would like to tip my hat to the hoaxsters involved. At first glance the site is rather convincing and actually had me for a second.
I had my doubts, but you just had to ruin it...
haha..... hey I know how popular ragu threads get... so....

Walken would at least make the news paper articles scan worthy, if only for the quotes.
