We've been one-upped. "I won support from voters with this face, and to take it off would be breaking promises." We can't let this stand. If we don't do anything wackier next election year I'm moving.

The wrestler fought his way to victory in local assembly elections under his ring name and wearing his trademark mask, and has vowed the mask will not leave his face even after he trades the ring for the staid halls of Japanese politics.

Memepool has just posted a few other links on this subject, including one to porno Sasuke was supposed to have been in thereby, challenging the italians also. We now have a naked three-way cage match of electoral wackiness.

My fellow Americans, can we rise to this challenge?
