My fellow PEELicans...
This election year, I'm personally getting pretty sick of our regular candidates for President of the United States (especially since I've already voted.)  And so, I've decided to hold my own election, to take America's mind off the insanity and give minors and foreigners something to do:

Which Futurama character would you want as President?

Vote based on comedy value, popularity, or actual politics, I don't care; no matter what you do, you'll still be more informed than most of America in the real elections.  And without further ado, here are your candidates from the two major American parties and seven "third" parties.  Voting will end sometime on November 3.

Democratic Party: A corrupt, drug abusing, whore-mongering "Hispanic" and a poor Irish Catholic with and IQ of 90 or so.
 
Bender: As an ex-con, I know how much the death penalty sucks, so I'll do away with it.  Also, FREE MONEY FOR POOR PEOPLE!
Fry: We will fight the war on terror with lasers from space!  We’ll be all like ZAP!  POW!  Peew peew peew!  Oh wait, that’s the other guys.  We’re just going to use Germans.

Republican Party: A retard and his sidekick who's about 8 times smarter than him.
 
Zapp: We'll beat whatever the Hell it is we're fighting by sending wave after wave of our conscripts at it!
Kif: For God's sake, don't vote for us.  Seriously, if this jackass wins, I may have to allow myself to be brainwashed into some elaborate conspiracy to assassinate him at his acceptance speech.
Zapp: Ooh, interns!
Kif: *Sigh*

Independents: A woman who got sick of regular parties and a source of easy money.
 
Leela: Now is the time to do away with the two party system, not to mention the horny idiots I'm running against.
Amy: Leela says for every million dollars my parents donate, I get to redecorate another room in the White House!

The Green Party: Because Jamaicans have udda eentrests, and I had to put Scruffy in here somewhere.
 
Hermes: People, I love regulations as much as de next mon; Hell, I love 'em more dan me own son.  But de government has gone to fah in deir regulation of, er, medicine.  Oh, and we could use more complicated environmental regulations to use on corporations.
Scruffy: Scruffy doesn't even know who this guy is.  *Eats potato chip.  Slowly.*

Libertarians: The Smelly Hippy Party
 
Clone of Free Waterfall Jr.: Government is bad!
Frieda Waterfall: Down with the maleocentric manocracy!

The Rainbow Party: I think Zoidy's a little confused...
 
Randy: We deserve respect!  Down with Safety Moms and Evangelicals!
Zoidberg: I love this party!  They gave me this great outfit, and all the microphones I can eat *Eats microphone*

The NRA Party: Yes, they’ve split from the Republicans, and they’ve upgraded to Weapons of Mass Destruction.
  http://img22.exs.cx/img22/4181/ffsticker04.jpg 
Professor:  Eh wha?  Ooh, yes, I think we all deserve as many weapons and doomsday devices as I can invent.
Cubert: … (apparently, Cubert was beaten unconscious by Cubert-haters backstage)

The MOM Party: Let the Capitalist Revolution begin.
  http://img91.exs.cx/img91/2931/momsticker04.jpg 
Mom: Why the Hell am I even running?  I pretty much own the planet anyway.

The Evil Party: Including on-show incumbent Richrd Nixon and his poker buddy Rupert Murdoch the Robot Devil
 
Nixon: You know we’ll win anyway.  Just vote for us, or even better, don’t bother voting at all.  Arrooooo!
Robot Devil: I hate everyone I’m running against.  Which is good, because I plan on having them all put to a hilarious and ironic death as soon as we’re elected.


If you vote for a write-in candidate, remember to actually write in the name (post it.)

A note to the moderators
Yes, this is a character poll going on at the same time as Fall Madness.  Personally, I think the format is different enough to justify it, and I hope this won't be a straight popularity contest.  Also, is there any way to close the poll to voting without closing the thread?  If so, please do it as close to 12am EST on November 3 as possible.  If not, sometime Wednesday evening would be good.

Cool idea, NoR! I'm voting independent. Like I did at school. The Democratic party would most likely kill us all, as would... Everybody else, in some sort of ironic, yet hilarious, mishap. I would like to live another seventy years or so... Even if it means my slow, torturous death won't be hilarious.

Turanga-Wong in 2004!

Since Free Waterfall Jr. doesn't believe in private property, I don't think he'd be a Libertarian, at least as far as the American Libertarian Party goes.

I really wish the show had been on long enough for a 3004 election episode.  I wonder who would have run against Nixon.

I voted for Leela and Amy, by the way.

NRA all the way!  We need to be able to defend ourselves from evil alien overlords invading - something that has happened frequently in the past.  And those past invasions have proved Joe Earthican has been unable to protect themselves when the invaders slipped past our military!  It's necessary, even if Joe Earthican has the capability of vaporizing an entire city block!

I cast my vote for EVIL!  Because politicians have relied on evil throughout there entire careers, and it's time evil was upfront in running the government.

But Bender/Fry and Zapp/Kif would be tied for second.

Alright, next time I do something like this, TLL gets to do the artwork.

By the way, is there any way around the eight image per post limit?  Cause I'd really like to show all nine of the bumper stickers right in the post, rather than linking.

EDIT: Gracias, oh he of the twin avys, but I know jack about photoshop.  I did all of these in paint, hence the crappy resolution on several of them, especially the Republicans.  On an unrelated side note, all of these stickers are legal signature images...

Right family, wrong generation.  I would have to say Old Man Waterfall would be the closest thing to a Libertarian in the show.  His running mate would be, oh, let's say, Zoidberg.

Isn't Leela's last name Leela? (I remember David X. Cohen said something about her first name being her last, and her last, first. But I'm not completely sure.)

Yep, it's been mentioned before that her real first name is Turunga. They said that out loud in "Problem with Popplers".

Oh seriously?  I haven't seen all the commentaries, but I gathered from consensus on this board that Leela was named East Asian/Bajoran* fashion - family name first, given name last.  This was based, I think, on Less Than Hero...I forget exactly what.

Also, good point, Unknown.  I mostly just wanted to play off the stereotypes of each party: the Democrats are corrupt, the Republicans are militaristic, the Libertarians are anarchist hippies.

*I heard that one in passing.  I actually never paid enough atention to DS9 or watched enough TNG to notice the inverted name thing

You are right. Her name is Turange Leela and her parents names are Turanga Munda and Turanga Morris. For (some) Mutants the surname is obviously written before the first name.
Same is with the Bajorans in ST-DS9.

That's confusing me. Is her first name Leela? Does that make the line in "Problem with Popplers" invalid and non-canon?

Family Name: Turanga
Given Name: Leela

In normal Indo-European format, she'd be Leela Turanga.
However, because the writers of the show said so, here name is legally, culturally, and officially Turanga Leela, just as if she were Chinese or Bajoran.  (I'm surprised we haven't attracted the attention of Teral with all these DS9 mentionings.)

I assume they did this because she is named after the Turangalila Symphony, but Turanga is kind of a goofy first name, even for a scifi show, and not nearly as pretty as Leela.

Re-elect Nixon/Beelezebot for '04!  Those two have more experience running the country than the rest of those yahoos put together (aside from Mom).  Nixon's career has survived so much: wars, famines, and impeachments!  Beelezebot own the souls of those who are foolish enough to question Nixon.  The rest of the candidates aren't trustworthy enough to take care of the Professor's spaceship, let alone the world.

Because I have some new information and I'm an attention whore, here's something to put me back at the top of the page:

I will make the final count of votes at midnight Central Standard Time on November 3.  Any votes after that won't count (as if anyone cares who wins.)  Also, Mods I'll ask you to lockinate this thing when I'm good and ready and think that it's commented out.  I don't want this thing to get resurrected by crazy newbs every month or so.
