Election Day, ComicMix style
Everybody else is watching the results come in, after they go out and vote. But we are a comic book / pop culture web site. We know what the real debate is:
Vote, and give your reasons to the exit pollers in the comments section. (Hey, it beats hitting refresh on fivethirtyeight.com every ten minutes.)
It comes down to foreign policy to me. The Thing is likely to let his vice president, Mr. Fantastic assist in diplomacy…. where a president Hulk would merely smash, smash, smash… and frankly, haven’t we done enough of that?
Re: foreign diplomacy– President Hulk has stated he would have a strong isolationist policy over and over again ("Hulk just wants to be left alone!") backed up by the force of nuclear arms. Green nuclear arms.Dr. Richards, however, is just too flexible, not stiff enough and all over the place.
When it comes down to brass tacks though, who do you trust… The vigilante who has been a national threat on more than one occasion (see the newly published 'Thunderbolt' Ross report) or the national treasure that is the Thing? While on candidate has done nothing but plummet our military spending into a downward spiral, the other has helped economic development, through public appeal in new clean energy technology (see the newly minted Chevrolet Fantasticar Hybrid.).That aside, don't we want a family man in office? Mr. Grimm is widely known to be a moral center with his long standing relationship in the blind community, and has strong ties to a fantastic inner circle of friends. The Hulk however has only befriended on enemy of the state, Mr. Rick Jones, who is currently under suspicion of being a blue scaled abomination.Could it be any clearer?
Yes, let's talk about Mr. Grimm's friends. A noted hot-head, reckless in the extreme, constantly provoking incendiary reactions. His inflammatory style and his celebrity ways are infamous. Is this the sort of person a president should be hanging around?Mr. Grimm's relationship with women is nothing to crow over, either. He dated the daughter of a known felon, then spent some time dating an illegal immigrant and an enemy of the state. And women are completely invisible in his working life.The Hulk, on the other hand, has long standing associations with Alaskan Senator Ted Stevens, the longest serving member of the U.S. Senate.
And yet you continue to skirt around the issue of our national defense. How many millions of dollars have been lost to the Hulk's bursts of anger? Admittidly Mr. Grimm has been known to have caused collateral damage from time to time, when saving New York from intergalatic terrorists and facist dictator super villains…. all the while the Hulk (who is still unwilling to give a legal name or social security number) has chalked up millions of dollars of destruction to US military personelle, vehicles, and weaponry. And might I add, there's never been a need for an anti-thing military division… yet your candidate is responsible for the need for countless task forces, all created for the sole purpose of taking him into custody.And do you have any answers regarding the Hulk's criminal record in the Las Vegas, or in regards to your candidates declaration of war, and subsequent capture of New York City landmarks, and the enslaving of national heroes for the use of gladitorial combat?
The Hulk has no criminal record in Las Vegas. As to the declaration of war, he was attempting to bring people responsible for a massive genocide to justice, based on the available intelligence.And while we're talking about military and criminal records, need I remind you that your candidate has a history of breaking into classified military installations, and that he refused to register and dodged the draft of the SHRA?
