More challengers have stepped up to the plate, and some of the ones that are there are making moves…
Tiessa Montgolfier has given another stirring address to the masses. While her gift for words is unquestioned, we at SLGOP wonder when our esteemed opponent will put some actual substance behind those words. Ms. Montgolfier, people in SL have real issues and real concerns, and they need real answers, answers which I am prepared to give them. Are you?
Two more candidates have surfaced:
- Samantha Poindexter – She has a love/hate relationship with Second Life, and seems dedicated to its potential improvement. Yet at least one of her proposals, the merger of the Teen Grid into the Main Grid, sounds downright dangerous to us. Remember, the TG exists primarily to protect teens against predatory adults…and, if the two grids were merged, it would invite even more outside scrutiny of SL as a whole, something the SLGOP is highly opposed to. And, while her stance on vanilla ice cream is quite convincing, we would also remind our worthy opponent of the delights to be found in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Mint Oreo. 🙂
- Tyffany Flintoff – After seeing Ms. Flintoff’s proposals, we wonder if she will split the “authoritarian” vote with Mr. Talamasca and Ms. Wei, thus increasing the SLGOP advantage in the election. Her proposals seem half-borrowed from our platform, half-borrowed from Mr. Talamasca’s, and we also wonder if she intends, perhaps, to be a “celebrity” candidate, much like Angelyne in the California gubernatorial election. SLGOP, on the other hand, is “in it to win it.”
Meanwhile, our “meet and greet” event tonight went well, garnering us new supporters, and we expect to gain mindshare as a result. Don’t forget, there’s only one candidate in the field with a comprehensive platform and the proven experience to back it up…and that’s the SLGOP candidate for Governor, Erbo Evans!
Disclaimer: It’s all satire. All of it. As in, a work of fiction. Any resemblance to real politics or real Second Life is entirely coincidental. And no, I’m not going to play Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop” next time I DJ at the Gin Rummy. 🙂
