The M*A*S*H Party (TMP)

Click here to see the profiles of the losers and analysis of the primary.


When it comes the M*A*S*H Party (TMP), the big question is: what happened? How did a lunatic fringe third party candidacy come from behind to achieve such an unexpected victory? It seems like a replay of the famous 1960 Kennedy/Nixon election, or the 1989 movie "Major League." Somehow the M*A*S*HERS reached out and grabbed the big brass home run ball and ran it into the end zone with only seconds left on the shot clock.

Superior organization. Relentless campaigning. The female vice president thing. The Robbins drawing away Ford votes thing. The psyches of millions of Gen Xers marching in a nostalgia-induced M*A*S*H goosestep thing. None of these quite answer the question: How?

How? We'll tell you how. Massive voter fraud, that's how! Van Gogh-Gogh Votemaster Rob Terrell found hard evidence showing someone used an automated "script" that used all available connections to the VGG server to continuously vote for Alda. The Van Gogh-Goghs decided to prosecute the offender to the full extent of the law. However, Internet movie president election fraud laws clearly state that laws governing fraud in the elections of movie presidents, via the Internet, do not exist. At all. So Terrell banned the IP address in question for almost a full two hours, then got bored, unbanned it and took a nap. When woken, he threatened to take the whole site down and mumbled, "who cares about all this goofy movie prez crap anyway."

Prophetic words. Prophetic words indeed.
