    Someone’s gotta give the lizard people a fair shake, after all.

  • 2 Mindy on Nov 21, 2008 at 5:55 pm

    Is that the Gorn? I never noticed the sassy scarf around it’s neck.

  • 3 Bill Corbett on Nov 21, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    Yes. Bob Gorn, Lizard People Party.

    Ran on a platform of fiscal responsibility. Real down to earth guy.

    His people promote down-to-earth, but I suspect he just wants a rock to sun himself on. Still, he has the loveliest eyes.

  • 5 RemmieBarrow on Nov 21, 2008 at 6:54 pm

    Don’t all lizard people just want to be left alone so they can just lay on rocks and sun themselves.

  • 6 Walter on Nov 21, 2008 at 7:16 pm

    I’m sorry, but I have not had good experiences with lizard people in the past. They are very rude. I know it seems racist to stereotype them like that, but it’s the truth.

    I’m surprised the lizard people got any votes after the debate. Their candidate tried to compare himself to Gojira, only to be rebuked with: “I served with Gojira. I smashed Tokyo with Gojira. Gojira was a friend of mine. You, sir, are no Gojira.”

    Aren’t most politicians ectotherms?

  • 9 Junker on Nov 21, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    I heard the republicans are thinking of brining in James Tiberius Kirk to run against him in the next election cycle.

    I voted with the majority on all but two of the polls on the page Bill linked. I’m a little bit confused by people’s votes on “The Pencil” and “The Arrow”.

    Two different writing implements smacks of forgery to me, but it could just be the painful memory of the time I tried to turn a ‘D’ on my first grade report card into a ‘B’.

    And if that isn’t an arrow, what is it? “Sure, voting is serious business, but thar’s always time fer doodlin’!”

  • 11 Melman on Nov 21, 2008 at 8:13 pm

    Now that’s an election I can get behind.

  • 12 Melman on Nov 21, 2008 at 8:14 pm

    Maybe the ink ran? It happens.

  • 13 Krud on Nov 21, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    The “eraser mark for Franken” seemed a bit much to me.

    Lizard People in ‘12! (If the earth still exists, I mean.)

    I like his foreign policy platform:

    “We have destroyed invaders, as I shall destroy YOU!”

  • 15 Brian O. on Nov 22, 2008 at 12:35 am

    In related news, Liz Ardpeople gave a brief press conference, where she stated that she wasn’t running, but appreciated the attention.

  • 16 Houndstooth Mind on Nov 22, 2008 at 5:35 am

    My thought is that the voter remembered “school days” when all machine scored tests had to filled out in number 2 pencil or they wouldn’t be scored properly. I think the voter changed writing implememts to make sure the ballot was read properly. That’s why I voted that is should be counted.

  • 17 Onil on Nov 22, 2008 at 6:36 am

    Some of my best friends are lizard people.

  • 18 Jah on Nov 22, 2008 at 8:35 am

    The Illuminati is everywhere!

    Yeah, right.

  • 19 Inspector Dim on Nov 22, 2008 at 11:21 am

    I’m not entirely sure they’re going to count my ballot:

    If you change the “s” in Charles Aldrich to a “z”, you can get the anagram Arch Lech Lizard, but I think Lech Lizards are generally DFL…

  • 21 NanoRiffite on Nov 22, 2008 at 7:35 pm

    Jim Morrison would be proud.

  • 22 Casey on Nov 22, 2008 at 8:11 pm

    Wait… Bill… “WAS?” Did you vote for a dead lizard… or is he a bastard now?

  • 23 Kyle S on Nov 23, 2008 at 6:52 am

    Awaiting the inevitable “Don’t blame me! I voted for lizard people!” bumper sticker.

  • 24 Ben on Nov 23, 2008 at 1:17 pm

    I think I went to school with his brother Jeb Gorn. What a total closet case.

  • 25 Ben on Nov 23, 2008 at 1:18 pm

    Wait a sec…I thought Franken IS one of the lizard people.

  • 26 Ben on Nov 23, 2008 at 1:21 pm

    Hmm, maybe I was thrown off by Franken’s “Innsmouth Look”

  • 27 Ben on Nov 23, 2008 at 1:22 pm

    Hey, anybody had one of these yet?

    I for one would like to see an election where the electees face off in a no holds bar, battle to the death using only the common items found in their immediete environment.

    Just imagine how well Macgyver would do.

  • 29 Auntie Maim on Nov 24, 2008 at 8:32 am

    That little “you be the judge” thingy was SO flawed…where’s the “Reject the ballot; this person is too stupid to vote” option??

  • 30 seanf on Nov 25, 2008 at 7:37 am

    Bill, I’ll bet Torgo is so pissed at you right now. Seriously, he was counting on your vote, and you gave it to the Lizard People? No more delivery pizza for you, methinks.

  • 31 R.A. Roth on Nov 26, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    Now you’ve Gorn and done it!

    Who are these Lizard people? It isn’t one person, as the Canvassing Board seemed to think before they tossed your vote. Maybe there was a better way to protest. It wasn’t you, but you didn’t help, either.

    Is this a reference to the Doors’ “Celebration of the Lizard People”, the Sleestaks, or the Lizard seen above in Star Trek?
