Write-in votes are all the rage for some people hell bent on making a statement. Obviously, this year Hillary and Ron Paul were favorites of handwritten whims everywhere, as was the ever-popular “None of the Above.”
Among the write in votes were those who really ran for president or vice-president during the long primary campaign: Sen. Hillary Clinton, Rep. Ron Paul, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, Fred Thompson, Rudy Giuliani, Sarah Palin and even Steven Colbert… and Jesus, God, Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
Nice to know the Almighty was in some good company – he was up for consideration and all.
I mean, who wouldn’t want to see the White House inhabitated by cartoon characters? The approval rating sure of the president would go up, and who knows, maybe that bipartisan thing could actually take place as well.
