Ladies and gentlemen, make way for George Pataki to climb into the 2016 Clown Car Stretch Limousine.

Everyone wants their share of the Billionaire Bucks, I guess.

Defiant in the face of long odds and political pundits, former New York Gov. George Pataki will announce his bid for the Republican presidential nomination in Exeter, New Hampshire, on Thursday, according to a report.

“It will be a very stiff climb up a very steep mountain, but that hasn’t stopped me in the past,” Pataki said in an interview with the New York Post on Monday, acknowledging the fact that skepticism abounds over his potential campaign.

I cannot imagine what those skeptics are thinking, can you?

His platform will be so original, too.

“I’m a Republican following in the tradition of Teddy Roosevelt who understands that conservatism isn’t just economic policy and but it’s also preserving and enhancing the outdoors,” Pataki said, adding that marriage, gun rights and education should be left up to individual states to decide.
