NEW POLITICAL PARTY MAY BE IN THE WORKS
WASHINGTON POST EXCLUSIVE
Washington, DC, August 4, 2007 – An unidentified political operative told the Washington Post that a new political party may field a candidate in the 2008 Presidential Election. “Voters are tired of the Republicans and Democrats,” he said. “They crave a fresh face and a new approach. I’ve been researching an obscure aircraft internet site for months now, and I find the kind of unbridled optimism this country hasn’t seen for decades.
“The political group call themselves The Faithful and they have been testing their new ideas against a panel of all political stripes for over a year now,” the operative continued. “The internet panel’s inability to rebut The Faithful’s arguments has strengthened their political resolve.”
“Their platform is fresh and optimistic; they see the world as it should be, not at it is. The group brings a new set of economics that will put Keynes and Friedman in the dustbin of history. They have found the secret of relieving suppliers of the shackles of shareholder return, fiduciary responsibility, product performance, aftermarket support and critical media review.”
“The Faithful bring a populist message that gives them a real shot in 2008,” he continued. “They want a chicken in every pot and a plane in every garage. If current U.S. industry can’t do this, then these dinosaurs will be left behind, as new companies and new rules are rolled out. This is populism at its best… these aren’t coupon-clipping trust-funders, these are blue collar guys with dirty fingernails.”
“We are about to enter the enlightened age of economics,” he concluded. “The Faithful realize that capitalists have been cheating the common man with high prices and artificial scarcity. The establishment had better watch out because The Faithful are about to storm the castle with pitchforks and torches.”
