The Real Green Party Candidates

I really hate to pilfer from Cesca twice in one day,* but I figure if I give him due credit and encourage you to buy his book (which is damn good) he'll let me have a little leeway.

He snagged this image from the Minnesota Public Radio website; it's just one of the many "questionable" ballots that have turned up during the Coleman-Franken recount.

My favorite part about this isn't just that some (apparently high) Minnesota citizen decided that it was imperative that he vote for the "Lizard People" for U.S. Senate -- but that he wrote in "Lizard People" for president as well.

I'd make fun of him, but for all I know he sneaked onto one of the visitors' ships, saw Diana eat a guinea pig, and now knows something the rest of us don't and is acting accordingly.

I for one welcome our new lizard overlords.

*I do, however, enjoy saying the word "pilfer." Really, say it a few times. Pilfer, pilfer, pilfer.

The more I think about it, a lizard person wouldn't be a half bad president. At least we would know he believes in evolution.

Unlike Huckabee who just has a reptilian brain.

Probably a reference to the late Douglas Adams' So Long and Thanks for All the Fish, from his Hitchhiker series. Here's the appropriate excerpt:

OH GOD, a V reference! Guess that means Barbara Bush is running for Senate?

Blenderab said...

Wow, a "V" reference. At the time, a very cool concept. NBC used to be number one, and had the greatest programming. What happened?

Now, they feed us crap. like that campy and over the top lame remake of "Bionic Woman" or now, "Knight Rider," and refuse to put the greatest show on television, "Battlestar Galactica" in prime-time, preferring to leave it on their smaller affiliate, Sci-fi.
Freakin Morons!

Sorry, I went off topic. Yes, I got the point. I just don't like Al Franken. Honestly, he really hasn't mattered much since in fact, he WAS on NBC, eons ago, when he wrote, and/or "featured" on SNL.

Maybe he should look in the mirror, and in his best Stewart Smalley voice say;

"I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me."

Oh. David Icke would just love this. But then again, according to him, Bush is also one of the extra-dimensional, baby eating, half-human Jewish lizard people who have been secretly controlling the world for thousands of years. So it really wouldn't be much of a change in government, I guess.

Kris Kristopherson is one, too.

Paranoid schizophrenics can be SO creative!

And for random knowledge, there's a really good ska band called the Pilfers. And it IS fun to say.

Will our lizard overlords force us to work in their sugar mines?

well shit... it isn't a true palindrome, but god i love the constitution party candidate: james niemackl, or better said, semaj lkcamein.

I had to re read the V reference before it sunk in that it was a V reference.
Not because it was so remarkably obscure, but because I actually wrote Mark Singer in for president.

So, is that a spoiled ballot, or not? You can see why a tight recount like this becomes such a legal bloodbath, because you can argue it both ways. Franken's lawyers will argue that the voter demonstrated clear intent, while Coleman's lawyers will say that the voter clearly intended to make a write-in vote for a mythical candidate, given that this is what they did for President. It's Florida 2000, with earmuffs.
