Any Monty Python fans? Or just John Cleese fans?

Did you know that he's offered to write Obama's speeches for him if he wins the nomination?

From the Telegraph, April 9:

Monty Python comedian John Cleese is to offer his services as a speechwriter to Barack Obama if he wins the Democratic nomination to become US president.

Cleese, who lives in California, told the Western Daily Press newspaper that his jokes could help the Illinois senator get into the White House.

"I am due to come to Europe in November but I may be tied up until then because if Barack Obama gets the nomination I'm going to offer my services to him as a speechwriter because I think he is a brilliant man," the 68-year-old said.

In 1987, he recorded a party political broadcast for the SDP-Liberal Alliance, the previous incarnation of the Liberal Democrats.

Here it is.
