Election Countdown Recap Review with a Thoom
Welcome to TMN's continuing coverage of the Fen Presidential Election.
Paramedic the Thoom here, with some late-breaking analysis as time runs out to cast your vote.
Let's review the candidates.
Pros: Wants everybody to have fun; Vice President Pun'isher
Cons: New to Puddleby's political scene; some question about why this longtime Largo supporter is now running herself (quote: "Actually I admire Largo, and I was until very recently, strongly advocating for him. But then I figured he needed a real opponent..."—she voted for Largo before she voted against him?)
Pros: Self-described maverick; promises continuity with the Odesseus administration; has the potential to "go rogue" and upend Puddleby's staid political milieu; shoots starbucks from her parachute
Cons: Seen cavorting with the Orga; relatively unknown to Puddleby politics; may be involved in the recent disappearance of Puddleby's sheriff, Noivad (quote: "my good friend Maeght won't have to worry about that tyrant sheriff for much longer, if ya know what I mean. *wink*")
Pros: Master of self-promotion; tireless campaigner; Althea as campaign manager; Fen Treasurer Hunter; Vice President Relkin; political machine known as the Largocracy famous for getting out Largo's message and getting out the vote
Cons: Master of self-promotion; disappeared from Puddleby mysteriously just before his widely expected election to office last time
Pros: Keen fashion sense; intends to cleanse registration lists of undead voters; has asked thoughtful questions about whether Largo has served on any neighborhood boards with Orga

Cons: Rarely, if ever, seen out of the library; may still be locked in the closet
Yay! Ya I sure was for Largo before I ran. He needed someone real to run against! Sorry that lipstick wearing Fen doesn't count.
Stylunk am hoping everybody am noticing how Thoomcare am manipulating some image of Stylunk to am make Stylunk look bad. This am just some sort of behavior that Stylunk am come to expect from some Largocracy-dominated Thoomeral media.
ber? I thought that were a clear TMN endorsement fer Stylunk. What be more positive than an absentee prez? Tha only thing better'd be a drunked absentee prez.
Oh puh-lease. Thoomcare is so far in the bag for Stylunk it's not even funny. If Stylunk's complaining about this sort of news coverage during the campaign, what sort of restrictions on fair reporting do you think he'll impose once he has the full power of the Fen Presidency at his command?
Take it from me, a Stylunk administration would be a total debacle. Any of the other candidates would be an improvement. Well, maybe not Largo.
Quick sidebar, Stylunk stole my beer. This makes him guilty of those two most heinous of crimes, stealing, and stealing beer.
Stylunk am hope everyone am realize that Skirwan am just throwing some sour grapes at Stylunk because Stylunk am fired Skirwan for some gross incompetence.
Gross incompetence? Gross incompetence?! I'll show you gross incompetence! I made you! I created you out of nothing, and you're nothing without me, you damned ungrateful bug-ridden tool!
Ahem, that was clearly "orga-smacks." The ack was silent, din't wanna let em think I was scared, ya know? Celibacy rocks! You betcha!
And in other news, the wench is voting for Largo!
That's right you tart! I hope you lose by a landslide. Largo is the only candidate to meet my standards. If it weren't for the clan exp I'd quit LA.
Can you say BOOT-y call?!?!@?! Ta-ta wench.
