With an impressive 60% of the vote, we are ready to call this election in favor of President Elect Gonzo the Great! Gonzo and his running mate Rizzo the Rat obtained 176 votes, meaning that there are 177 people who are okay with Gonzo in the White House Situation Room.
Grover and Cookie Monster delivered their concession speech earlier today after only receiving 110 votes. It seems that the American public does not want a monster as President (for a change).
But Gonzo and Grover weren’t the only options. There were seven write-in votes, but only two of those voters bothered to specify who they wanted to see as President. One write-in was for Big Bird/Snuffleupagus, presumably because of Big Bird’s huge (heh) presence in the actual election. Another vote was for Kermit/Fozzie, which is probably going to happen every four years. The Kermit/Fozzie write-in is the ToughPigs Election equivalent of shouting “Free Bird!” at a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert.
Thanks to everyone who voted, and congratulations to President Elect Gonzo and Vice President Elect Rizzo! It’s going to be a weird four years…
