The CEO and COO of the Internet's most popular website for conspiracy theories and other "alternative topics," have formed a new political party and have announced their candidacy for President of the United States in the 2012 national election.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHOENIX, AZ - April 1, 2011: In a dramatic move into the realm of national politics, the CEO and COO of the popular website, www.AboveTopSecret.com, known as "Skeptic Overlord" and "Springer" respectively, have announced their candidacy for the office of President for the upcoming 2012 national elections. Running under the newly formed T.E.A.T. political party, the two are very hopeful for a broad reaching campaign.
When asked about their core platform, CEO "Skeptic Overlord" responded, "There are a great deal of issues of primary concern to Americans, many of which are being ignored by nearly all other national politicians. We're the only ticket that addresses all the issues head-on, and fully acknowledge why contemporary politicians side-step and avoid anything important." The COO, "Springer," added, "Exactly. What they're not telling you is that there will be no 2013. So none of these issues matter one bit."
The new T.E.A.T. party, which stands for "The End of All Things," reflects the core platform and issue-centric beliefs of the pair who head the party and are also running on the presidential ticket. As it's been confirmed the world will end at the stroke of midnight (GMT) on December 12th, 2012, their platform focuses on the key point that 2013 will never happen. And as a result, no President-elect will be inaugurated in January of 2013. "We could focus on a wide range of artificial issues such as gay marriage, stem-cell research, Justin Beieber, or even pretending to be mad at Wall Street bankers, but we won't," says Overlord, "We're going to be the only honest politician in this race, and say straight up, it just doesn't matter."
With campaign offices opening up in Arizona, Oklahoma, and New York, the candidates and their party are off to a strong start. Springer noted that key people are joining on a daily basis. "Elected officials from across the country are jumping at the chance to be a part of our movement. Just this morning we signed up the elected Class President of a high school in Dearborn, Michigan and the elected comptroller of a college fraternity in Fieldale, Virginia. It's a very exciting time for us."
"With all of the partisan spin and intentional distraction away from actual important issues experienced in contemporary American politics, we are convinced that our message will resonate with the voters in a way never before seen." Skeptic Overlord went on to say. "It's too bad that none of it actually matters as there will be no 2013."
The pair have become well-versed in present-day political issues through the operation of their website, AboveTopSecret.com, which receives five million visits a month from people sharing their concerns. The two can be reach through the website for interview requests for additional commentary, more information on their political platform, and information on the newly formed political party.
