    Vote washed-up mutant!

    finally, a duo matched to the American Zeitgeist. a ‘big, bald Nazi’ and a mutant Internet-spawn beast.

    where do I sign?

    I’m confused.

    Which one is which?

    Is Monty buffing his head?

  • 5 Onil on Aug 5, 2008 at 9:13 am

    Has Monty’s citizenship ever been proven? Is he even allowed to run for the highest office in the land?

    Should Lou Dobbs ready his outrage?

    Jesse “The Body” Ventura, and Monty “The…Something”.

    They both don’t seem to have time to grow hair.

    I never realized Monty was so tall!

    It makes him look so presidential.

    No, really, why the hell not indeed!

    Loose Change We Can Believe In

  • 11 Heather on Aug 5, 2008 at 9:48 am

    It seems that Monty is trying to reach out to the disenfranchised ex-wrestlers-in-need-of-chinderwear demographic with his choice of running mate. A poor decision, since probably he already had their support after his campaign recieved the ringing endorsement of the National Terrifying Mutant Association. I’m afraid he’s going to lose this one to the Fur-Bearing Trout, unless those patently ridiculous fraud charges stick.

    A New Yorker teaming up with a large mass of Minnesotan.. Monty’s like Bill Corbett v2.0!

  • 13 Anthony on Aug 5, 2008 at 10:57 am

    Monty Ventura sounds like the name of an exceptionally annoying jerkhole.

  • 14 Kevin Murphy on Aug 5, 2008 at 10:59 am

    I’m certain I don’t know what you mean, and besides, I’m from Illinois.

    Personally, I highly approve of having two cast members of Predator on the same ticket and will happily cast my hypothetical vo… wait, that’s not Carl Weathers after all.

    Still. Not bad.

    He needs to run on the motto of George Bush the First:

    “No Nude Texans!”

  • 17 ShutterBun on Aug 5, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    I simply cannot vote that preternatural hellspawned creature into office.

    Monty’s OK though.

    Like Ventura would ever win political office. It would take a ton of votes from idi-wait, what? He was governor of Minnesota? Uh…as I was saying…
