Stephen King Uses Creepiness to Promote MoveOn Functions

stephen_king.gif

We opened our email this morning and found a letter from Stephen King entitled "I Know Scary." We thought, yes, that is true. And then we read on:

Dear MoveOn member,

If I know anything, I know scary. And giving this president and this out-of-control Congress two more years to screw up our future is downright terrifying. Thankfully, this national nightmare is one we can end with--literally--a wake up call.

My friends at MoveOn.org Political Action are organizing a big round of national phone parties this weekend before Halloween, Oct. 28th & 29th. We'll be calling progressive folks in key districts who may not turn out unless they get a friendly reminder or two.

And since it's almost Halloween, we'll celebrate with an optional costume contest, some pumpkin carving (I'll be making a Jack-Abramoff-O'-Lantern) and--of course--plenty of candy.

[...]

Thanks,

-Stephen King

The letter bemused us. It's really only interesting for the following reasons:

- There's a mildly disturbing Stephen King photo alongside it

- Stephen King makes shitty pumpkin jokes

- Stephen King is inherently creepy

But if MoveOn wanted to get mileage with a Halloween promotion, they certainly chose a good poster boy. - Contributed by Angela Natividad

Ack! Fixed. Thanks Turbo, we'd hate to experience imminent death by clown.
