Well That Didn't Take Long

Corporation Says It Will Run for Congress
Following the Supreme Court decision implicitly granting corporations the right to free speech (by determining that political spending is a kind of speech), a corporation has decided to take what it believes to be “democracy’s next step”: It is running for Congress.
Unfortunately, that's not a joke. I can't see this having a snowball's chance in hell of working, but who knows? Stranger things have happened in politics. After all, dead guys get elected and manage to vote all the time.

There's that pesky "citizenship" thing that's gonna get in their way.

You don't think a little thing like the rule of law will stand in their way, do you?
