ESR | October 20, 2008 | Which candidate would make the better pirate?.

I link this story with some trepidation, as I do not want to open the door for polical debate – that’s just not the role of But this story, written by the author of Silver (recently reviewed), is just too appropriate to pass up.

Feel free to comment per usual, but be warned. Elections are important, but they’re also buried beneath craploads of crap, and I’m not going to tolerate any of that here. You wanna comment on which candidate would look better in an eyepatch? Go for it. You vehemently hate one of the candidates and want to use this opportunity as a platform to voice your politics beneath a thinly veiled effort at pirate humor? I will delete you comment, regardless of which side of the aisle you hail. You wish to calmly and eloquently explain why one candidate is better than the other? This too will be deleted – we get enough of that 24/7 every freakin’ where else. Just so you know.

  1. Other then some candidates being stupid as always, I just want to comment on your comment, Bilge.

    “Craploads of crap”. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  2. Kind of a stupid article because neither man would be a pirate. Community service just doesn’t sit well with pirates, but I’m sure a pirate would take more from the rich since they have more.

  3. Aye… politicians be pirates by nature. They be talkin like the silver-tongued devil they be, and then be taking our money and spendin it. So’s McCain be the salty seadog of experience, and so he be the finer rogue.

  4. That’s how we should choose our President, let get them all drunk, send them out in sloops and see shich one survives. Yes!
