Oh children, do you even know who Walter Mondale is? Do we need to get him a guest hosting gig on Redneck Island for better name recognition? Okay, so maybe we had to look him up on Wikipedia too, but if anyone can get Jimmy Carter‘s vice president and former Democratic presidential candidate on the ballot despite the fact he’s not actual running, it’s Mr. Bradley Cooper. “I think that Mondale has got a real shot,” the Silver Linings Playbook star joked with Vh1’s own Kate Spencer. Someone wake up Walter Mondale from his nap, find his glasses and tell him to put on his shoes! With Cooper’s power, money and influence behind him, there’s no telling what he can do!
Other than his amazing hair, Cooper thinks social media will be the deciding factor in the outcome of tonight’s election. “I think more people than ever, even though they think perhaps voting is going to be down this year, I’m curious to see,” Bradley mused. “Just the fact that so many people watched the debates, because social media has changed so much, it’s a new campaign. It’s a new race than it was four years ago.” Says Cooper, “Just the fact that the poles can change, can swerve so much after one debate shows the power of social media.” So get your butts on Twitter and start tweeting #WalterMondale2012! And seriously, someone find him his glasses. He’s 84, for pete’s sake!
