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
: 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
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.)

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.
