and now...Leftist Politics

In the wake of the November 7th poll results, the staff here at BigAlDente Blogazine takes a turn for the political, with the introduction of our first overtly political coverage content. As of November 9th, word has trickled into the windstreams via Style Transfer Protocol that the very first Democrat politician has thrown his proverbial hat in the ring for the 2008 presidency. That Democrat is Iowa governor Tom Vilsack. What is his platform? What claims does he make concerning his plans for the United States? What, pray tell, is the deal with Tom Vilsack? The answer: We have no earthly idea. He has been picked by our staff for no other reason than he was the first, and our STP operators happened to notice. It should be noted that Republican Duncan Hunter of California has also announced his intentions for the presidential race, but our coin (as well as the national election) came up tails so we’re going left.

Vilsack, we hope, will provide us with postable content as we follow his story, while simultaneously launching a full scale investigation into how he is involved with the eight pointed star structure. Projections will be made, extrapolations will be calculated.

So far what we know is this: He is the Governor of Iowa. Our research department has also found that, among the ten democratic picks for president in ’08, he places dead last in favor ranking, with 1% of polled democrats favoring his Corn Flakes over Cheerios. The front runner happens to be Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. Here is our stance on Vilsack: We have picked the underdog. However, if we base our beliefs on the idea that reality is a lie, than the opposite of reality is the truth. We have just transformed our underdog—into an OverMan. We here at the Blogazine stop short of endorsing any candidate. But since our AlDente Math department discovered the OverMan Loophole, we have no problem doing the next best thing. We execute this initial show of support with the BigAlDente seal of approval: ٭

    I have no idea what you just said, but The Eight-Pointed Star has spoken and therefore my arms race over my vote has been sealed superfluidly.
