Today, Frank Fennel's RCPAC released a statement claiming that the good Doctor has "absolutely no plans to run for office" in 2012, adding "unless my country needs me".
"I am a patriot first and foremost. If I am called to serve, then serve I must. I mean, how would that be more ludicrous than, say, Donald Trump as a candidate? I'm much saner than Bachmann. I'm better looking and more qualified than Palin and I give better speeches than Obama. Of course, luckily for them, I don't plan to run."
When asked what would constitute his country "needing" him, Dr. Frank became elusive.
"That is between me and my Creator. I need to pray on this."
