Except for the whole he died a year ago thing.
As a lawyer, it does not say that the President can’t be dead when elected.
That’s what they said about John Snow too.
He was only dead a few hours though. A year in the Erie Canal would make you pretty grisly looking
Well maybe Clinton could be the Night King then. It didn’t end well for him either though.
President Dallas’ theme song.
Stevens chooses US Grant
I mean this electoral take on the Washington Generals is very entertaining.
Calling it a night. If @Navaronegun wants to nominate one of my guys for King’s VP I’ll accept and you guys can work out the cubes as you prefer.
Sounds good to me.
Congratulations to President King and Vice President Fillmore on their reelections.
Abolitionist John Brown assembled 18 men to strike a blow against slavery by seizing the Federal arsenal in Harpers Ferry, Virginia. He succeeded in the effort, but was captured several days later by a force commanded by a company of United States Marines commanded by Brevet Colonel Robert E. Lee, who was on leave from the 2nd United States Cavalry Regiment, stationed in Texas. Lee sent Lieutenant J.E.B. Stuart to negotiate the surrender of Brown and his men, who refused. The Marines stormed the arsenal, capturing Brown and his men.
Brown was put on trial in Virginia, accused of treason against the Commonwealth of Virginia, found guilty, and hanged. On the day of his execution, he wrote his last testament:
I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with Blood. I had, as I now think vainly, flattered myself that without very much bloodshed, it might be done.
Brown became a martyr to anti-slavery forces in the North and a villain to pro-slavery forces in the South.
@Brooski plays Raid on Harpers Ferry. 4IP to Conservative Leader (President King), Tension +1 (to 3).
It would have been better if General Grant had kept that man locked up after resolving the Kansas problems. Change can and should come, but while terrorists and extremists on both sides of the issue fan the flames of violent conflict, hidebound with their millenarialist ideologies, change without their self-fulfilling prophecies of holocaust proves more distant.
—President W.R. King, Letter to the Atlantic National Magazine, 1853.
