Midnight Sun's presidential endorsement

After much deliberation, calculation and libation, we at Midnight Sun have reached a unanimous decision on one of our nation's most important issues -- the presidential election.

As you well know, this election will shape our country for years to come. It is a crucial time for America, and there are tough decisions to be made. On that note, we are proud to announce Midnight Sun's presidential endorsement ... 

captain morganCaptain Morgan!

From the start, the captain's slogan -- "Party Without the Politics!" -- struck a chord with us. We knew he had something special to offer America.

As this race has unfolded, we came to see the captain as a deliciously smooth and spicy candidate who could lead this country in the right direction.

We like everything the captain stands for, from the two-day work week (and five-day weekend) to "making sure the party is hot hot hot" to drinking responsibly ("captain's orders").

Midnight Sun also admires the captain's rustic fashion sensibility and swashbuckling approach to politics.

Still undecided?

The following video should help you make up your mind.

so glad you didn't name the rock star or loose cannon.

He definitely has my vote!!!!!!!!!!

seems better than what the idiots in the major parties have foisted on us.

Captain has never treated me badly --- actually, he has. But I keep coming back.

Why do I think the flamboyant Cap'n might be in favor of gay marriage? (Not that there's anyting wrong with that.)


"seems better than what the idiots in the major parties have foisted on us."

Not completely true. The press has been quite active in pushing Obama on us and treating him as the heir apparent, with his slim to non-existent professional resume and circle of associates, not buying the somewhat tarnished glitz without substance.

Whether you agree or not Vote!

oh, don't worry GDA, I won't let this travesty of an election go unanswered. I WILL VOTE!!
