It is 2004 and the presidential race has never been so intense.
The Republicans have proffered their own candidate: Peck Salamander, a well-groomed Christian, former governor of Utah, rabid Christian and member of the new Radical Racists.
The Democrats are going to have to choose between Lance Ark, Governor Moonbeam Jones, and Dave Ratchet, who has never held a political office.
The incumbent is unaffiliated. He bullied his way through the previous election.
But voters seem to be attracted to the independent candidate Tinyman in the primaries.
Because they knew he could never win, could never actually hold office. Four years? Forget it, this guy couldn't last a month. And the sensethe sense that every voter is unavoidably overcome withof throwing one's vote away was never as powerful and ... real.
Tinyman. Let's all put our votes where they can do no real harm...
