America can be a scary place. In America, corporations are considered to be people, people who speak via the medium of money, and are allowed to refuse to pay for their employees’ healthcare for religious reasons.
It’s also a country where, in 2012, a major Republican politician, while running for President, could say that gays are weird, on camera, on purpose, and expect it to help rather than hinder his challenge for president.
Mitt Romney, the Mormon former governor of Massachusetts is currently challenging for leadership of the Republican Party, for the right to lose the November election to Barrack Obama.
Palin, Perry, Cain, and now Gingrich have all been challenging him for leadership in the polls at different times, with Romney consisting being one of the top two candidates as the different flavours of the month come and go.
Anyway, there’s a magazine called Mormon Today! which is totally a real thing and definitely not made up, who are running a poll to find America’s favourite Mormon. And what do you know, Romney’s position in this poll parallels his position within the presidential race. It’s as if the whole thing were made up for satirical purposes.
In the past few months I’ve been working as a ‘journalist’ for the prestigious news website The Leaky Wiki.
I’ve had four articles published so far.
As I’ve said before, I will start writing an introductory blog post to each article I write at The Leaky Wiki, complete with any backstory the reader may need to understand the sloppy, badly written jokes I’m trying to make.
The line written in bold will be the link to The Leaky Wiki.
