As mentioned by Tim in this week’s show, the Kosh for President campaign has some competition as a couple of formidable tickets have thrown their hats into the ring. The folks over at b5scripts.com and cafepress.com have enlisted Londo and G’Kar under the banner of “How much worse could it be?” They seem to have the support of JMS, but that may not be exactly what it appears. The two ambassadors offer a flexible approach to governing, promising on their website, “Should the electorate find themselves not happy with the slate as elected, whoever is in second position will gladly assassinate the other in order to bring about a referendum.” Between Londo’s oratorical flair and G’Kar’s well-known appeal to the fairer sex, the Vorlon will have to manipulate, I mean, sway, many minds to come out on top.
Analysts are unsure what effect the third ticket will have on the election. Zathrus and Zathrus have also announced, under the banner of “Zathrus trained in crisis management.” They also promise “in times of economic belt-tightening by electing one Zathras you elect all Zathras, nine for the price of the One.”
