Baracking the Vote

Well as everyone can guess, I didn’t actually win the election for president. Barack Obama, as it turns out, ran a really strong candidacy and though I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get the chance to debate him, I’m still proud of his win.

I think there was a key difference between our campaigns and that’s what really got me. Obama had a very effective television/newspaper/radio/Internet-based campaign while mine was mostly housed within this blog. I think there was a bit of a difference in the spending of campaign finances as well.

That’s OK though. I’ve got a full plate as it is, I really don’t have time to be the leader of the free world. Just look at all the stuff that I have to do.

This week, I’m helping out a friend of mine who needs a deputy while his is out for a short while.

Next month, I’m testing a new warp drive with Commander Hugh.

After that, I am going to be fighting a runaway robot.

Of course, there are always space zombies to fight.

About 6 months from now, I’ll be wrestling a woolly mammoth.

And early next year, I’ll be going on a ride along in a brand new rocket sled with the Space Patrol.

So there you go, I’m just really too busy to be president right now. Sure, it would be fun and all, but I just don’t have the time for it.

Hang on how do you know what you're doing in the future?

Is this latent future sight the reason why a clutz like you has survived until now?

I want a recount! This election was were never mentioned.

Hope you're coming to the Enterprise Christmas Party. I'll try to see you don't end up in the brig or get assimilated.

I guess it's just as well Obama won. I just can't see him taking the time to fight zombies. And helping Sheriff Andy? Not high profile enough.

Wolverine -- how could I be a lone wolf if I join a buncha teams, though?

Koma -- Well, I have a lot of this stuff scheduled out already, you know. Fighting the space zombies is just a given.

Captain Picard -- I never did get the results from the Votertron machines in Ohio.

SQT -- you're right, leave the presidenting to the presidents and the intergalactic gladiatoring to the intergalactic gladiators.

Professor Xavier said...

Sorry you didn't win, Jon. I can't help but feel slightly responsible, in some small way. If there's ever another Presidential election, you can always run again.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

Yeah, just wait 'til next year, right?
