He Found the Perfect Candidate!

His Perfect Candidate..

or This Idiot for Office


I made phone calls for political candidates.  Every now and then I heard that a particular candidate does not align exactly with a voter’s views.  Sure, this candidate is still better than his opponent, but he isn’t pure enough on this voter’s particular issues.  The candidate isn’t perfect, and the voter doesn’t want to compromise.  I have the perfect solution for that principled voter.

Dear perfectly principled voter, simply enter your own name as a write-in candidate for that office.  You dislike compromise so write your name in for every office on the ballot.  That way, not just one, but every single candidate you vote for will know exactly what you want and will perfectly reflects your views and priorities.  You finally found your own perfect candidate and don’t have to settle for the lesser of two evils!

If this goes viral, I expect a few percent of the voters will actually write themselves in.  They could also write in Jesus Christ, but I don’t think JC lives in their district any longer.

Now, dear perfectly principled voter, now that your candidate exactly reflects your views, tell me if your vote was wasted.

The rest of us are casting real votes on Tuesday.


Rob, the imperfect voter

    T was thinking J.C. Watts, but I don’t think either party would abide a real Conservative

      I heard JC speak when he was in SD a few months ago. I like him. Too bad he isn’t pure enough. No one is.
