The Call of McCthulhu

The Dark Avenger, in comments:
McCain still lives, too, I suppose, again in that chasm of media complacency which has shielded him since the Vietnam War ended. His accursed campaign is sunken once more, else Bill Kristol wouldn't call for a restart; but his ministers on earth still bellow and prance and slay around idol-capped monoliths in red states. He must have been trapped by the sinking polls within his black abyss, or else the press would by now be screaming with fright and frenzy. Who knows the end? What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise. Loathsomeness waits and dreams in his visions of victory, and decay spreads over the tottering cities of men. A time will come - but I must not and cannot think! Let me pray that, if I do not survive this manuscript, my executors may put caution before audacity and see that it meets no other eye.
Ia! McCthulhu fhtigue!

The one that really scares me though is Shrub-Niggurath, the Tanned Goat Of the Bushes With A Thousand Young...

I think Spencer started all this, so blame him.

If ever something called for a contest: The best Lovecraft/McCain Campaign Dispatch pastische wins!

But what of the prize? T-shirt of James Madison riding a T-rex? Homemade pot pie? Election night with WS, watching the returns and shooting guns in the air?

Shrug-Niggurath? No, I'm far more frightened of Palinthotep and her ability to whip Republicans into frothing madness of orgiastic violence...

Shrub-Niggurath, obviously. Wow, my spelling is fail right now.

Ah, A, if it was that election night thing, we'd be inundated with entries. Who could resist election night with a pedantic, heavily-armed philosopher? In fact, a pedantic, heavily-armed, and inebriated philosopher? So it'd better be like the t-shirt or the pot pie thing.

I've been trying to come up with something witty to say in response to this, but I've failed.

So I'll just say: H.P. Lovecraft had ingrown hairs. Look it up.
