First of all, I just want to say happy, if slightly belated, Christmas to those of you who are Christian (or just heathen clingers-on like myself). I also want to say welcome to those new members among us, and that I'm so, so pleased to see that our humble little party is growing like it is and filling up with such great (read: funny and intelligent) people.
Secondly, if I may knock down the fourth wall for a few minutes, I notice that we've had some RPers arrive; this is great, and it'll be nice to have the our boys putting in appearances in hypothetical person. However, as the (sort of) head of this little political lovefest, I'd like to know who's behind these, um, sockpuppety type things (for reference ^_^), and I want to just remind anybody who wants to assume a character persona to please stay as in-character as possible and please also notify me of whom you're going to play so that I may keep track of who's doing whom (but not like that). Remember, above all, that we want to avoid any scandal in these delicate primary stages of the election, especially those of the heterosexual sort.
Also, a note to Alex and Heph: I'm taking on the role of Political Consultant to the Candidates; this means, for example, that if for some reason we need to make a major political decision, like a stance on abortion or something (Zeus forbid; that would lose us so many voters), that I'd like to have a say in the matter before making any statements, and so might the rest of the party. Of course, smaller, not-as-political things like bath mats for the Oval Office washrooms and what kind of cold salads to serve at the Macedonian National Convention fall under the jurisdictions of our various and sundry Official-Sounding People.
That's about it! ^_^
