The Search For a Vice-President
The Cthulhu campaign still has not identified a
Vice-Presidential candidate. For most campaigns, this would be abnormal, but the
Élder Party has been running a peculiar campaign from the start. The candidate
Cthulhu wtill has not made a single public appearance, yet the Élder Party still stands
firmly behind their nominee.
Lindsey Markowicz of the Church of the Ignoble Ichor, and Élder
Party delegate in Innsmouth, MA stated at a preconvention gathering, "We support
Cthulhu despite the fact he has yet to 'press the flesh of the voters'. We are
comfortable that Cthulhu will leave a 'lasting impression' on this country."
In this odd campaign, there seems to be many in-jokes but one
thing delegates are not joking about is who should be the Vice-Presidential nominee.
This is a point of contention among the delegates with many choices available.
One group is said to have a call into Colin Powell, but it is doubted he will
respond. Other names on the short list are Dagon, Nyarlathotep, and Yog-Sothoth.
