Every time I turn on the news, I hear something about the primaries for the presidential election. I'll be honest, I'm getting sick of it. I don't like politics. I think it gets too cut-throat, you know? And everyone lies. Jasper Fforde created a character who was the world's only honest politician-- and therein lies the joke.
Honestly, that's why I find New Hampshire primary candidate Vermin Supreme to be so refreshing. He just says it like it is. He's honest, he's forward. He admits that all politicians are rats, and he is the biggest one of all of them. Still, there is NO WAY I would actually vote for him. He seems a bit too..extreme for my tastes. Still, I found him to be very amusing, and I think he is a very gifted grammarian. Just listen to his word choice; it's beautiful.
