Cthulhu, whose presidential run has barely been covered by the mainstream media, objected to this insulting comparison.
It comes as no surprise as the election reaches maximum overdrive that rank partisans seeking the upper hand would think invoking my name is a needful thing. But their misery and desperation will secure no joyland from my campaign.
You will not find me giving pneumonia to small children or being an impulsive firestarter. Those are for the lesser evils to which I should never be compared. It is the end of watch for mankind and it is our aim to bury them in the dead zone.
The Cthulhu campaign's statement was packed with Stephen King references, using titles from his books including Maximum Overdrive, Misery, and Joyland. Plus the word "It" was definitely in there somewhere.
This isn't the fist time Cthulhu has run for office. He ran for president of Poland, at least according to this campaign poster sporting the slogan, "Choose the greater evil," instead of the lesser of two evils.
While the part-man, part-monster lost the people of Poland, America just might be #ReadyForCthulhu.
