image for Ron Paul Winning Spoof Poll
The Spoof writer Ethan did not vote for Ron Paul

Ron Paul is winning yet another internet poll in the 2008 presidential election. On The Spoof, the most popular website in the world among Web 1.7 based satirical British news websites run by guys with phony mustaches, Ron Paul is dominating a poll with 50% of the votes. None of the major presidential candidates have any votes, though a bag of rocks is currently tied with 50% as well.

Sensing a change in the political wind, Republican Mitt Romney has changed his name to Bago Rokk, and has changed his religion from Mormon to Ekki Ekki Ekki P'Tang. Romney denies any involvement in that religion's practice of marrying shrubbery.

Other Republican candidates, including Rudy Giuliani, criticized The Spoof for giving excessive media coverage to Ron Paul. John McCain introduced an amendment to the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, on the floor of the US Senate, that would prohibit internet polling within 1461 days of any presidential election.

Ron Paul himself responded to the poll results, saying that he is constantly surprised by how he does so well on the Internet. However, he was disappointed at the tie with the bag of rocks, and was shocked that only 4 votes had been cast. Apparently, he said, "The Spoof is not as popular as freedom."
