Top 5 reasons the WWF doesn't really have 14 million potential voters in its camp:

5. 1 million followed Tazz over from ECW; U.S. law prohibits convicted felons from voting.
4. 2 million are nationalized Canadians; with the exchange rate, their votes are only worth 1.5 million in American elections.
3. 3 million are 14-year-olds who lied about their age on the Nielsen sign-up sheet, thinking it might get them some free beer.
2. 2 million are rabid Rock fans, thus unable to fill out a voting application, ask for help in filling out a voting application, or spell "voting application" in 5 tries or less.
1. 5 million only logged on to in hopes of seeing the Kat display her "Oval Offices."

1. Still think there's an outside shot you'll be included in Hyatte's "Rat Pack."
