I have proof that there are people in Illinois, USA have a great sense of humor. I got the following email from Mr. M G, Subject: America
Dear Mr. Pax
The United States of America needs your assistance in restoring democracy here.
Turnout in primary elections is traditionally low, about 15%. Since Bush is unopposed, turnout in the Republican primary will be very low, possibly less than 0.1%
Lifelong Republicans such as myself are ashamed to participate in the Democratic primary because we are partly responsible for the current mess.
[here it comes]
You can help by offering yourself as a write-in candidate for the Republican Party nomination for President of the United States. It is very possible that your admirers in Illinois outnumber Bush voters in the primary. It would be a beautiful embarrassment to Mr. Bush for him to lose an unopposed election. This could add to the psychological momentum needed to defeat him in the general election on 2 November.
So please consider promoting your candidacy in your blog. Duty calls you.
I would have loved to be a write-in candidate at your president’s elections, but as you know we here in Iraq are getting closer and closer to having to vote for our own president and I really must concentrate on *my own campaign* here.
and remember, vote Pax for Prez.
