Based on their hilarious viral campaign, a new satirical political party announces its Canadacy for president of the United States.

As the American election increasingly resembles a production of CATS performed by actual cats, U.S. citizens are looking for a new leader. That leader is Canada, and they want your vote for president of the United States.

Since launching their video campaign in January, the Canada Party has gone viral, with almost a million hits on YouTube and coverage ranging from CNN and the BBC to the Huffington Post and German State Television. Their new book, America, but Better: the Canada Party Manifesto , balances the doctrine of American exceptionalism with a dose of Canadian humility and common sense in an effort to secure Canada as the new leader of the free world, by proxy.

Their promises: One gay couple will be allowed to marry for every straight couple that gets divorced. The phrase "job creators" will be changed to "job creationists," and they will be given seven days to actually create some. Corporations will still be people, but if they can't provide a birth certificate they will be legally obligated to care for your lawn. Corners will be installed in the Oval Office, and timeouts given to congressmen who can't play nice.

Devoted to restoring America to its former glory, the Canada Party will soon have the whole world chanting, "Yes We Canada."

FINALLY !!! A voice of reason, common sense and civility interjected into the US Presidential election. And who better to deliver it than two Yanks living and working in Vancouver BC and loving the almost par dollar and the fact that they STILL make two extra bucks if you buy the book in Canada.

Canadians will get more of this book than our southern neighbors, but its funny regardless of what side of the border you loath politicans on.
