Well, maybe not a best post. But timely....
I don't know about the rest of you, but I've gotten about a bazillion phone calls this last month from every party under the sun pushing their Presidential candidate. And I couldn't help think that there really hasn't been any candidates in just about forever that I felt any particular desire to vote for.
But how cool would it be if you could vote for your favorite superhero?
What would the best qualifications be? Professor Xavier of the X-Men might be a really good choice. After all, he can read minds so he'd really know if the North Koreans were thinking about nuking us. He could probably even change Kim Jong-il's mind without the man even knowing about it.
Or what about Superman? He could stop a bomb before it even landed on the earth. And if he missed the first time he does have the handy-dandy talent of being able to reverse time if necessary. Though he might be a little to busy saving people to take the job of President.
Batman might be good. He's a no-nonsense kind of guy. Plus there is the intimidation factor of the mask. The other diplomats won't have any idea what he's thinking.
Since I just did a post on Hercules, he does come to mind. He's obviously strong and he does have the ear of his father Zeus; who knows when those lightning bolts might come in handy?
So, who would you nominate?
