Edward and Edwards campaigns running side by side

Potential perils awaiting earnest politicians in the metaverse became real Sunday evening. Given the mainstream media’s breathless excitement about supporters of John Edwards american presidential bid creating a headquarters in Second Life it was bound to happen. Next door to John Edwards’ in-world campaign HQ, supporters of a challenger have launched a campaign for John Edward – a TV psychic.

I stopped by the John Edward supporter’s campaign center in Kkotsam sim and spoke with Mr. Decomposing Monstre about the campaign. Mr. Monstre told me that he “respects Mr Edwards campaign, but really in the end ask yourself, what can the man offer you? I mean he can’t even speak to dead people. That’s entry level psychic powers!”. Supporters of the opposition were unavailable for comment as of press time.

The John Edward headquarters carefully mimics their neighbor, and from what I could tell during several visits has more supporters actually present at the site – at times Edward supports spilled over onto the Edwards site and I never found any Edwards supporters in world. If grassroots organization is important, Mr. Edwards is likely to have a hard time winning the hearts of the metaverse citizens – and his inability to read or control minds is also a handicap.

With the Mr. Monstre’s in-world media machine lining up behind Edward, it appears likely that the Baku sim goons will show strong support for the candidate. I interviewed Mr. Monstre to learn more:

Decomposing Monstre

Pixeleen Mistral: Will Edward be making a visit to SL?
Decomposing Monstre: He’s already here
Decomposing Monstre: He’s inside all hour hearts and minds.
Decomposing Monstre: Because he can read them.
Pixeleen Mistral: how can he concentrate?
Decomposing Monstre: I imagine he just squints his eyes really hard
Pixeleen Mistral nods
Decomposing Monstre: and throws mental mindbeams out across the world
Pixeleen Mistral: for Edward supporters – what should they do?
Pixeleen Mistral: how can they help?
Decomposing Monstre: Why just sign up at one of these terminals!
Decomposing Monstre: You can also grab some fantastic freebie John Edward related crap to wear and hang around your house!

Pixeleen Mistral: I just hope Edward does not peak too early
Pixeleen Mistral: the primaries are a ways off
Decomposing Monstre: I figure this whole campaign is really moot anyway
Decomposing Monstre: I mean when it’s voting time Edward can just control their minds anyway
Decomposing Monstre: I guess this softens it up for him a bit though.
Pixeleen Mistral: so he can control as well as read?
Pixeleen Mistral: impressive
Decomposing Monstre: Oh yes
Decomposing Monstre: Edward has been known to operate mobile artillery from miles away.
Decomposing Monstre: have you seen this sign
Pixeleen Mistral: John Edward has the power to control men’s minds?
Decomposing Monstre: It has a lot of useful John Edward related facts
Pixeleen Mistral: he looks really clean too
Decomposing Monstre: A lifetime of speaking to the dead does that to a man.

John Edward can make you vote for him – think about that

Pixeleen Mistral: any further plans with the campaign?
Decomposing Monstre: Probably not really, as I said earlier it’s kind of moot because John Edwards will mind-zap the unbelievers anyhow.
Pixeleen Mistral: so you are confident of victory
Decomposing Monstre: Of course.
Decomposing Monstre: It’s John Edward.
Pixeleen Mistral: good point
Decomposing Monstre: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Edward This is him btw

    So… Mr. Monstre was brainwashed by John Edward?

    …or did John Edward scared the fuck out of him and made him do all this?

    no no no… think about it.
