Cthulhu for President

When Bill Kristol, editor of the conservative “Weekly Standard,” said over the weekend that an independent candidate would be entering the race for president, this probably wasn’t what he had in mind.

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro responded to Kristol’s tweet by suggesting that Cthulhu seek the highest office in the land.


For those of you who are not familiar with the genius of H.P.Lovecraft, Cthulhu is a pretty impressive candidate.

…the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from his tomb to revive His subjects and resume his rule of earth…

Then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and revelling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.

What a platform!

But his campaign slogan really says it all:

Cthulhu bumper sticker

Why wait? Apocalypse NOW!

  1. LOL, Nona. Very good!.

    IMO, voting tor the lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. We are not confined to Evil A or Evil B; there are other choices — third party, write-in, & abstaining. I wonder how many votes Cthulhu will get. 🙂
