Zod 2008

Zod 2008. The Presidential election of 2008 begins in earnest as General Zod of Superman 2 fame has announced he is running for President! The site includes his campaign platform, a kids page, and answers to questions from potential slaves (I mean voters).

I realize my immediate like for this site is probably related to being a member of Generation X. I doubt the millenials even know who Zod is! The movie was released before they were born. I am sure some Baby Boomers recognize him too.

From the site:

When I first came to your planet and demanded your homes, property and very lives, I didn't know you were already doing so, willingly, with your own government. I can win no tribute from a bankrupted nation populated by feeble flag-waving plebians. In 2008 I shall restore your dignity and make you servants worthy of my rule. This new government shall become a tool of my oppression. Instead of hidden agendas and waffling policies, I offer you direct candor and brutal certainty. I only ask for your tribute, your lives, and your vote. -- General Zod, Your Future President and Eternal Ruler
