Hope this guy doesn’t win!

The NZ Herald today reported that a man with a gumboot on his head and promises of free ponies for all Americans is hoping to take out President Barack Obama in the race to the White House.

While Mr Obama is certain to represent the Democrat Party in the Presidential Election later this year, a host of little known politicians are nonetheless competition for to get their name on the ballot.

The incumbent claimed an overwhelming 82 percent of the vote (48,970 votes) in this week’s hardly reported New Hampshire Democrat Party primary – a race which was all but over before it began.

After Obama was Republican candidate Ron Paul, whose name was written on ballots by 2273 voters, followed by Ed Cowan, who got just 2 percent of the vote.

However close on Mr Cowan’s heels was Vermin Supreme, a self-declared “friendly fascist”, who reeled in 831 votes.

Campaigning before the New Hampshire vote, Mr Supreme promised to enact a mandatory tooth brushing law.

“Some people will tell you this mandatory tooth brushing law is about the secret dental police kicking down your door at 3am to make sure you’ve brushed. Friends, it is not.

“It’s not about the government-issued toothpaste containing an addictive yet harmless substance. No friends, it is not even about DNA gene splicing to create a race of winged monkeys to act as tooth fairies. What this mandatory tooth brushing law is about is strong teeth for a strong America.”

Mr Supreme, who ran for the Republican Party in 2008, also advocates giving each American a free pony, “one of the most overlooked issues in America today”.

He says the policy would create jobs and is good for the environment.  http://www.nzherald.co.nz/politics/news/article.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=10778515
