Launch every Electoral, for great justice.
Four years ago during the TryCon get-together, while waiting for people to get in, me and sircrowbar had stopped to get lunch at a restaurant near the airport. Now with the presidential election of '04 looming near, and the way me and my friends minds work, we came up with the idea of instead of debates and an election, that the next president should be decided by a giant robot battle. Why? Well....
  1. Everything's cooler when there's giant robots involved.
  2. ... Would you really fuck with someone who could pilot & kick ass in a giant robot, and still controlled the US Military?

Now  I can't remember who the hell we picked to win the battle, but with the new election on hand it's time for Gundam P,

On one side, you have MechaCain and his partner, Pailntron. (Which, for some odd reason, has lipstick on.) Now MechaCain has years of experience under his belt, is a has served his country in war and peace, and is considered to be a maverick. (10% of the time.) However, it's age is starting to show and has been know to have a short fuse when deploying that beam sword of his. Pailntron isn't much help, since it runs under Windows 3.1, allowing it to either repeat the same dribble it was programmed to over and over again or allow it's logic to go loopy. Also, it tends to name it's funnels weird names like Trig, Calc, and Advanced Applied Sciences 204.

Also, the supporters of MechaCain and Pailntron seems to be of the rabid idiotic kind, prone to acts of violence and not thinking at all when saying or doing things. This happens to be the fault of MechaCain and group, especially his press secretary Fox News. MechaCain has tried recently to to quell that, but Pailntron seems to be hung up on a bit of code that contains the word pit bull.

On the other side, you have Obamabot 3000 and (Ohcrapit'sa)Bidanm. Now Obamabot is a new model, built upon the Obamabot 2000 - Community Organizer version. Though being new, it has survived battles not only against Bidanm and others, but has survived a lengthy, vicious one with the Clintonzord. there's also been a few problems, like a couple of his mechanics didn't know when to shut up, and there was a run in with another bot who tried to drop a colony on the White House back when Obamabot was being built. Bidanm was picked to help with the inexperience of Obamabot, even though they both fought each other and Bidanm has one of the smallest maintenance allotments ever.

The supporters of Obamabot aren't as loopy as MechaCain, but they do have one thing going for them: There seems to be a metric fuckton of them. To the point where even some MechaCain's launch base is starting to root for Obamabot.

But who will win? Easy. MechaCain's campaign has been running on what little they could find against Obamabot, but it really hasn't worked. Obamabot's been running on change and hope. And really, when is the last time you heard of anyone in a giant robot anime who had hope lose?

In all seriousness, go out and vote tomorrow. (Or today, since it's after 12 AM EST) Because it's your biggest voice in these matters, and one of the few times when you use your own instead of the one person representing you and 10000 or more people at once.

Plus nothing pisses me off more then people who don't vote, yet when things start going to shit they have the largest voices. You didn't use it then, you don't get to use it now.

That is a totally awesome comparison. Very, very awesome.

(Randomly: do you mind if I friend you on xbox live?)

Thank you. And for the XBL: Go for it.

Awesome. I am, unsurprisingly, Lassarina. :)

And immediately, the first thought that entered my head was Bidamn and Obamabot 3000 going through a Gunbuster-esque montage sequence on, yelling about how it takes hard work, guts and spirit to blaze onward to victory. Ganbatte, Obamabot! Your fierce change shall inspire all!

An alternate comment involved Palintron's vision systems to be excellent, but only when in view of Russia, but I considered that too easy. ;p
