The most fabulous fake candidate hits the stump at a political landmark with an empowering message for voters and hopefuls alike.
Two weeks ago, we brought you important news about the quietly burgeoning dark-horse presidential campaign of the drag queen and television host RuPaul. Today, an update: with the focus moved from Iowa to New Hampshire, in anticipation of that state's first-in-the-nation primaries on Tuesday, RuPaul -- like the rest of the GOP field -- has brought his campaign there.
Over the weekend, he visited the Red Arrow in Manchester (a campaign staple, and one of the stops on The Atlantic's Unconventional Tourist Guide to the N.H. Primary), where he announced that he isn't Ron Paul, and isn't a candidate. However, clad in a tasteful baby-blue suit, black cap, and chunky glasses, he had a stump speech:
I have a message for Ron Paul and all the other Republican candidates: if you don't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love anybody else? Can I get an amen in here? You better vote!
It's a shame, too, because that's the snappiest campaign slogan so far this cycle.
