Naked CowboyForget about Sarah Palin -- the big political news comes from the Naked Cowboy.

Robert John Burck, who parades around in his underwear, cowboy boots, hat and guitar in Times Square in New York City, is set to announce his presidential bid, The New York Post reports.

"America needs a president who believes in America. America needs a president who will stand up for America and protect its language, its borders, and most importantly, its culture," he said in a statement.

"America, I will fight to give the power back to the people. My entire platform and all of my policies and decisions will be organized so as to achieve a much smaller, fiscally responsible, decentralized federal government," he added.

This isn't Burck's first foray into politics. He ran against Michael Bloomberg in 2008 for mayor of New York City, before withdrawing from the race.
