My fellow readers:
My opponent calls me an Eighth-Grade Superzero, but this is simply untrue. Those who are Wide Awake know that My Life Next Door has prepared me to be The Model President. I spent my formative years as First Boy learning to spell. Listen to this: V is for … Vampire. See? I can also un-spell: How To Take the Ex Out of Ex-Boyfriend. The Misfits who oppose me with cries of “Vote for Larry!” will hear my rallying cry: “Larry who? Vote for Me!” Because, after all, All’s Fair in Love, War, and High School.
Thank you, and see you at the polls.
(I’m your next election-themed book and I approve this message.)
