Subject: To All American Voters – This Election
Why we should write in Mel Gibson’s name for President…

http://www.writeinmelgibsonforpresident.org

Dear Fellow American,

Every new idea raises overt and subliminal questions in
our minds. By utilizing Rudyard Kipling’s, “6 faithful servants,”
we will answer those questions. They are: “Who, What,
When, Where, Why, and How?”
Who: Registered voters

What: Elect Mel Gibson (who was born in Peekskill, NY)
President of the United States

When: November 2, 2004

Where: Every precinct in the country

Why: At fear of stating the self evident, there is, for all
practical purposes, no difference in the stated objectives of
Mr. Bush & Mr. Kerry. It’s tweedle dee or tweedle dumb.
Why waste your vote on one or the other when the effective
end result will be the same?

If you’re pleased with the way things are and want 4 more
years of the same then, by all means, vote for Mr. Bush. If in
some way or another you think that Mr. Kerry will improve
the situation then be sure to vote for him. But if you believe
that our country should embark on a different, more positive
course then consider making the effort to write in Mel Gibson
for President on Nov. 2.

We surely need someone with courage, conviction, intelligence,
imagination, dedication, and strength of character. We certainly
don’t need someone who has come up through the political ranks.
These sorts, because of the “pay back” nature of political
contributions, owe far too much to the financial powers which
have brought about his (or her) election.

Ours, on the other hand, will be a “campaign” of “zero” budget.
All we have to do is spread the word as to what to do (the write
in procedure). Download whatever information you would like to
use and distribute it widely. Make you own homemade “Mel Gibson
for President” posters. Use your imagination on the “Mel Gibson for
President” stickers in the rear window of your car.

TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE! IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT
ACTION IS TAKEN IN THE NEXT FEW DAYS! IF YOU’RE
TIRED OF THE SAME OLD SAME OLD FROM WASHINGTON,
VISIT OUR WEBSITE AND SEND MEL GIBSON A MESSAGE!

My response:

Dear Dr. Hurt,

I appreciate you taking the time to e-mail me your website. I thought it was a joke at first but after checking out your site I realize you’re all too sincere. I wish you luck in getting Mr. Gibson elected President. I, however, won’t be voting for him as I think he is a complete turd. Mr. Gibson has found fame and fortune from artistically engaging in macho, violent, bombastic, persecuted-hero narratives. Interestingly enough, those same traits seem to me the hallmarks of the Bush administration. In fact, were a biopic to be made of President Bush, I imagine Mr. Gibson could fill the lead role admirably. I see no indication that Mr. Gibson would run our country much differently than the current administration (well, perhaps Mel would offer a bit less support to the Israelis). Further, aren’t you yet tired of having tough-guy actors occupy positions of U.S. political power? Ronnie, then Arnie, now Mellie? Look, if you want to campaign to put an actor in office, let’s consider some other options. I suggest Pauly Shore or John Malkovich if you really want a change in the political environment but just about anyone is better than Mel Gibson – except for Sly Stallone.

At any rate, I’m glad to see you’re politically charged this election season and doing your part to motivate others.

Happy voting,
Jason
