The Candidate With a 430 IQ

<# some text #>

South Korea has an interesting candidate running for president — Huh Kyung-young. It's his third time running. Last time, in 2007, he got 10,000 votes, but he's convinced there was a miscount and that this time around he'll win. A few facts from his bio:
  • He says he has an IQ of 430.
  • He wants to move the U.N. headquarters to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.
  • He claims Michael Jackson's soul visited him three days before the singer died. Inspired by the visit, Huh later produced a record titled, "Call Me."
  • He wants to give $100,000 to all couples who get married, and $30,000 to anyone who has a baby. How to pay for this? "Where there is a will, there is a way. I have all the solutions in my head. Remember, my IQ is 430."
  • At the age of 57, he acquired supernatural powers.

If this guy were elected, I'd bet that he would set up a Ministry Of Silly Walks.

ExPat, you're cookin'!

Maybe he should put his money where his mouth is, and start out by moving himself to the DMZ. Although I must allow that putting politicians and diplomats in the DMZ has a certain appeal to it.

Anyway, if you have superpowers and an IQ of 430, wouldn't it be easier to be the power behind the throne than to run for office? Just kidnap the real candidates, take them to your lair, and put robots in their place.
