This may be the candidate who was sent from the future to usher in THE TERMINATOR future. -ulp-!

Yup. It's a marketing campaign for a website, bigfix.com. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2007/06/09/BUG9VQC8QC1.DTL

Please tell me this isn't real....

Posted by: Jason at June 12, 2007 3:49 PM

is this for real? i want to fear him and yet...

I don't know if this guy is serious or not, but I think I have a slgnificantly better message and greater chance at being King of the United States in '08. And my stance on education is much better than his. www.jonjonesforpresident.com A joke? Maybe, but then, doesn't that also describe the current administration?

Reminds me of trying to play Hamlet back in grade school.

Posted by: Jamma at June 12, 2007 6:19 PM

That's a joke right?
Forgive my ignorance but i'm swedish and can't keep track of all american comedians. ;)

I particularly like the "Buy Ray" option. I just hope different versions of him are available...

Posted by: Paperotta at June 13, 2007 8:42 AM

It's the campaign equivalent of search engine spam. "Technology" being the keyword of choice.
Isn't there something just a little bit "off" about having a big "BUY RAY" button on Ray's website. We know the president is for sale, but I prefer the lies to be more subtle than this guy's :)

Aren't the Chinese already doing RIRA? Oh wait, that's just a dump.

And thanks to cutting edge voting technology provided by Diebold, you can vote for him as many times as you want.

Posted by: Thomas at June 13, 2007 2:13 PM

Hahaha, that was brilliant... and technology.

Posted by: Christina at June 13, 2007 3:05 PM

I'm not one of his fellow americans... I feel slighted by his presumptuousness...

Posted by: Dan at June 13, 2007 7:02 PM

is this for real?

Posted by: benny at June 13, 2007 7:43 PM

I think that you have a point there. He's got all the gestures and movements of all Rich Little's politician moves at once!

Posted by: MrCorey at June 13, 2007 9:10 PM

Excellent. Mr. Technology has a Cafepress store. He couldn't come up with his own?

Posted by: Collin at June 13, 2007 10:24 PM

"Miriam! Get your patookets in here and get a gander at this guy! He says he understands all this newfangled techna-molology stuff!"
"Dadgummit I know who's getting MY vote!" *jabs remote control in general direction of tv set*

The merchandise does squeeze a few more laughs out of it. A campaign trail thong, I can see a few real candidates asking trusted advisers if they can sell those too. Yes. Skits are there.

Posted by: Boo at June 14, 2007 12:03 AM

Hey guys. It's obviously meant as a joke.
Watch some of his other clips, and you won't be in doubt.

He plans to collect old computers from people and use them to build a fence around all of the US, including Alaska and Hawaii to keep out illegal immigrants :-)

Posted by: Martin at June 14, 2007 9:05 AM

For someone tauting technology you would think he'd have that video stream better. That guy is almost as scary as Bush.

Posted by: Frank Emanuel at June 15, 2007 8:36 AM

Hah! Pure brilliance!

Posted by: Jess at June 15, 2007 8:48 AM

Greetings from Vienna, Austria.

We love what you are doing for us (evil Austrian Grin : ) )

Posted by: Helga Ursula Kraus-Meeder at June 16, 2007 9:00 AM

I love viral marketing. :D
Good thing Ray is bringing along technology. :D

Posted by: Acrylicana at June 16, 2007 1:34 PM

Just a quick word from the other side of the pond.


Posted by: Limey Guy at June 16, 2007 3:49 PM

if he'd just tossed the trendy mktg magic of "green" somewhere into his shtick (i.e., leading our nation through greener technological solutions--helping american men and women find their green-spot...) he might've actually had a fighting chance...

It's about time we learn to take heart and soul out of the presidency and rely solely on technology. You go Ray!

He is green. And these colors don't run!
