Presidential Decisions

Presidential Decisions are the months-long affairs America must suffer through to decide who'll be less terrible for the country.

It's all fun and games to some people.

Bummer.

We will literally use any excuse to include this picture.

Just The Facts

  1. Every four years, we witness a hysterically agressive war of words between two ugly old dudes.
  2. Once one of them wins, the fun is over, and they go back to ruining the country.
  3. *Sigh*

Choosing A Running Mate

Once you're nominated for the Presidential bid by your party, you have to choose who's going to be your

Vice President. Being the VP is a butt-clenchingly cool job, considering all you have to do is cast a tie-

breaking vote in the Senate and keep the President from spontaneously combusting. Seeing as how

these things are really never necessary, the VP really just gets paid to masturbate and play video games.

In the last election, voters had to pick between Republican candidate Sarah Palin and Democrat Joe

Biden, which was a like choosing between a toothepaste omelette and a sandwich full of fingernail

clippings. Sure, we knew we were doomed either way, but the ride down was a lot of fun.

Campaigning

This is where all the fun happens. You're pretty much given the green light to say whatever you want to

about your opponent, like "he's a filthy communist Muslim terrorist monster hellbent on destroying America

from within" or the favorite "he's a bigoted, white-supremecist neo-nazi klansman who's only reason for

sporting white skin is his absolute, unmitigated loathing of those with darker skin tones." Needless to say,

its an absolute blast writing up all your comedic material bullet points with your campaign staff. The rest

of the time is usually spent on the campaign bus, travelling to population centers and holding rallies.

Campaign Ads

This is where we really get in the know regarding the other guy's recent love affairs with Satan and

Al-Queda and where we hear all the stories from the various women he's raped and tortured in his

underground dungeon, financed by stolen taxpayer's dollars. He also hates children.

Campaign ads are a hilarious staple of any political match-up - they can either use careful editing to fit an

unflattering picture of your opponent to a quote of his taken blatantly out of context, or you can show

photographs of yourslef in a cape, pushing meteors away from earth with your gigantic testicles and

feeding Ramen noodles to starving children. Its all up to you. (Actually its not - its up to your campaign staff.

They just use you to say "I'm [insert name], and I approve this message," which varies in degrees of

self-destruction depending on how ridiculous the ad was).

The Media

The media is both your best friend and your worst enemy. Say you're a Democratic candidate running for

the White House. If you so much as loosen your tie, Fox News will hold a special on how you're not taking

the country seriously and that because you didn't explain why it wasn't tied properly, they're forced to

assume it was loosened while you were off bludgeoning orphans with a tire iron and forcing elderly

people to listen as you scrub down a chalk board with the edge of a ruler. Its the only sensible explanation.

If you're a Republican and a black person decides not to go to your rally, you can expect MSNBC to point

out that the only reason he decided to attend his daughter's birthday party rather than your rally is because

you are a hatemongering bigot and that you spout all sorts of nasty racial slurs at blacks and Hispanics.

You're also planning on taking over Mexico with an all-white army of pitchfork-wielding Baptists, who will

stop the march only to hunt down homosexuals and atheists and burn them at the stake. So make sure

there are black people at your events.

Oh, yeah. Then there are these two.

The Polls

The polls are how you judge your popularity among certain demographics during the campaign. If your

approval rating with blacks is low, have tea with Al Sharpton. If its low among Hispanics, well, that's tough

because we're not sure exactly what to do with that one. A taco joke would just be lame. If its low among

whites, talk about wall street or Nascar until you've got them masturbating into the palm of your hand.

Polls are a great way to check your status with the nation at any given time.

Speeches

You'll be making a lot of these, my friend. Emphasize your strengths and omit your weaknesses. Be

articulate. Keep your chin up. If at all possible, be young and dashing while you do so. Also, keep a backup

sheet in case the teleprompter shuts down.

Losing

For many people, watching your guy lose is like watching World War 3 unfold. This new guy is gonna

bankrupt the country, eradicate what resources we have left, and then hunt down and kill everybody

who didn't cast a ballot for him. You might as well just accept the facts. Hug your children, call your

parents to say "I love you," then take your family down to the basement where you the shotgun and

the stockpile of canned sloppy joes, and try to wait out the appocalypse as long as you can. Good luck.

Actually, statistics show that there was no nuclear holocaust following the Obama victory. We just

checked. Or following the Bush ones, or the Clinton ones. Still, though. The next guy is gonna get us

for sure.

Winning
