I read that "Watery Tarts Distributing Swords" is a legitimately-registered political party. My first reaction was a slight deepening of my continuing despair for the human race, but then it struck me that if the local regulations require only a signature on a form and a $5 filing fee to create a political party, I'd have done it, too.

Don't forget Vermin Supreme. He's running again.
