Riley points out that Ham Sandwich didn’t do all that bad on election day, garnering more votes than any other write-in candidate despite being a deli product whose entire campaign consisted of a web site and some press about six months ago. No money was spent advancing this candidate, Ham had not a single volunteer, and not one sign advancing Ham’s candidacy was placed. So while he fell far short of unseating Paul Ebert, Ham Sandwich definitely exceeded conventional expectations.
That’s right, we here at Virginia Virtucon in a joint effort with Black Velvet Bruce Li managed to get a deli product the most write-in votes for any office in the county and in just about every precinct. Just think of what we could accomplish with a candidate who actually has a pulse. Next time, Ebert, we’ll have a real live candidate coming after you and your pathetic record.
Note to Republicans: Fear is a horrible reason for potential opponents to decline running for this position.
