My fellow Americans*:
At a time when our nation is embroiled in a massive financial crisis, fighting a two front war on a relentless and passionate enemy, while prices for fuel and basic commodities spiral out of control, two major candidates are vying for your vote. Both of these men have established records, and each one claims that he is the man to bring about the “change” that our system needs.
Fie, I say. A vote for either of my opponents is a vote to maintain the status quo in the United States, to preserve the system of partisan politics and mindless bickering that has too long mired our nation and caused our economy to slowly stagnate. I say that “Real Change” is needed, and I am the man to bring about that “Real Change”. Now, I see you staring back at me with a blank expression and vacant eyes. While you may look like you’re retarded, I can see a spark in those eyes – the spark of Hope that I, Ahab, will bring about the Real Change, and a turn away from partisan politics.
But you must be wondering how can I accomplish such a thing? How can I, one man, change Washington and America from our current bureaucratic nightmare into the true utopia that it was meant by God and John Wayne to be? Well, my fellow Americans, the plan is simple and three fold:
1. Vote for me – this way everything I do after you elect me is totally legal
2. A really big claw hammer.
With my hammer, I will literally <i>beat within an inch of their lives</i> every elected politician in this nation, until I can no longer lift my arms at the slightest hint that they may be proposing some kind of dumbassed legislation that would interfere with your Allah given right to do as you damn well please provided it harms no one.
At the same time, I will appoint a new Cabinet level position in my administration: The Department of Whoopings. The Secretary of Whoopings will be carefully chosen from a pool of notorious ass kickers – this man or woman will have the sole job of traveling the country and beating the stupid out of people.
America – I am tired of the partisan bickering. I grow weary of the constant babble coming from Washington. It’s time for Really Violent Change – Change with a claw hammer. Vote for Ahab – vote for a New, more Awesome America.
Good night, and may the Ghost of John Wayne bless you.
