These are American LARPers. Their particular brand of escapism is commonly mocked as pointless or dumb. At least some thought went into it though.

I cannot tell you how many McHeinous supporters I know who have absolutely no idea what his policies are or what he stands for. They worship Sarah Palin like kids do Santa Claus. They don't know a whole lot about her practices, beliefs or credentials, but they are obsessed with her. Alaska and Anthemoessa both start and end with an A. That's all I'm saying.

At any rate, no matter how dumb people are perceived as being, they only get one vote a piece. I refuse to believe the pundits who say Obama has the election sewn up, especially now that Lou Dobbs, laughably, is bitching about voter machines being inconsistent and inaccurate in swing state, Ohio. (Where were ya 8 years ago you smug blowhard prick?) I want to believe that there are less dumb voters than there are informed voters, but faith isn't something you get, it's something you have. Until Obama himself says he'll officially be the next president, I'm limited to brief visions of hope that are tempered by the realization that elections can and have been stolen. So long as Dick Cheney has a pulse, his black magic is capable of unspeakable evil.

And that's why I'm wearing my +2 chain mail to the voting booth on November 4th.

Don't forget your Rod of Disintegration. Lotta poll workers to zap.

Are LARPers any weirder than fat slobs with their Larry Johnson jerseys on stuffing their face with chips and beer while belching after every touchdown?
