Want a president who is a proven job creator?

Meet entrepreneurial sports entertainer Steve Richardson.

Richardson said he’s running for president this cycle because he’s tired of little people being treated as if they were handicapped and wants to set an example for his children.

Not 10 minutes later, the aspiring commander in chief did his version of campaign “baby kissing” — luring a woman into the ring so he could demonstrate just how accommodating a smaller-statured mate might be.

Things only got more politically incorrect after that, as Puppet unleashed several rounds of organized chaos that spread from the ring to the bloodthirsty crowd and beyond.

Some in attendance were put off by the delayed start time; the two scheduled bouts finally got under way just more than an hour past the advertised go time. Other, perhaps still locked in Olympics mode, were unimpressed with the pre-scripted entanglements.
