A Heartwarming Story (Pt. 8)

Disclaimer: The following is entirely a work of fiction. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Or is it?

So. George was now his party's candidate for KingofalltheLand. But how would he beat the beloved AlGore?

George's handlers had succeeded in creating the image for him of a down-home Texas country boy everyman. But his opponent, AlGore, was a highly popular former Vice KingofalltheLand.

However, he had been second to the dreaded BillClinton. The dreaded BillClinton had forever tarnished his reputation.

George's handlers created a multi-pronged strategy:

1) Work to link AlGore hand-in-hand with BillClinton.
2) Plaster lies about AlGore all over the media.
3) create a multi-pronged whisper campaign about AlGore, tying him to overseas donors and false claims.
4) Go negative early and often.

These tactics worked. Many voters in George's fanatical base followed him blindly. George was almost positive he would win the election.

But disaster struck! The AlGore had won a majority of the popular vote! What to do?!

Easy! Start disputing the election in the magical land of Florida! After all, get simply one state to switch and the election would go to George, despite his losing of the popular vote...

To be continued.
