Speaking of religion . . .
Props to Jellio at YesButNoButYes for finding this campaign site for Jonathon "The Impaler" Sharkey, candidate for Governor of Minnesota in 2006: I am a Satanic Dark Priest, Sanguinarian Vampyre and a Hecate Witch. My Magikal Path name is: Lord Ares. Thanks for sharing. I despise and hate the Christian God the Father. He is my enemy. Hmm. That'll win you some votes. Why does he call himself "The Impaler"? From his platform: Any one found committing an act of terrorism in Minnesota will be IMPALED by me at the State Capital. If the US DOJ wants to prosecute me for it, then I will take my chances in Court, for I do not believe an American Jury will convict me of brutally killing a terrorist! I think this fellow is for real. The site goes on too long, with far too much unfunny material, for it to be anything but real. So: Kate might give you fur burgers and camel toes this morning, but only I give you vampiric politicians! Then again, you could just turn on CSPAN. D.
