GOP Candidates Adopt New Method to Attract Votes - Win Over Kids, Get Parents' Support

Funny story written by EvilAlwaysWins

Wednesday, 8 February 2012

The race for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination continues to heat up. Putative front-runner Mitt Romney credits his recent success to his campaign's effort to appeal to the hearts and minds of American adults through their children.

To do so, Romney enlisted the class president of Clarke Elementary, Jim MacGuile, grade 5, as his Chief Child Advisor. Shortly thereafter, the Romney campaign launched a new advertising and commercial campaign aimed at his chief GOP competitor, Newt Gingrich.

The campaign, "Liar, liar, pants on fire," is credited as being the chief impetus behind Romney's gain in recent polls.

In response, the Gingrich campaign brought in Clyde Catskill, 4th grade, Lincoln Elementary, as "Special Consultant - Child Relations and Mind Control."

Catskill wasted no time in creating the Gingrinch campaign's counter-response to the Romney campaign's salvo.

The "I'm rubber, you're glue" theme used by Gingrich in recent commercials and rallies has only been in effect for two days, but it seems to have staunched the bleeding and put the once rocked on its heels Gingrich campaign back on solid footing.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
