Does anyone else find this title rather ironic? lol.

"Kim Jong-il is the de facto leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (most commonly known as North Korea); the official leader of the country is still his long-deceased father Kim Il-sung, the founder of North Korea.[2][3][4] He is the Chairman of the National Defense Commission, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, the ruling party since 1948, and the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, the fourth largest standing army in the world. In April 2009, North Korea's constitution was amended and now implicitly refers to him as the "Supreme Leader".[5] He is also referred to as the "Dear Leader," "our Father," "the General", and "Generalissimo." [6]

"Many North Koreans believe that he has the "magical" ability to "control the weather" based on his mood."

Yea, it's pretty lulzy. There's nothing democratic about it. It's practically ruled by an oligarchy. The party has everything while the common people are practically starving. Oh yea, religion is banned too since they're only supposed to worship The Dear Leader. -__-

We certainly live in a strange world.

Try telling someone at the time of the boxer protocols that in a century one half of a plaything of a second rate power would have itself a vast military and some of the deadliest weapons in the world.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

here's another quite laughable yarn:

... they're apparently a Democracy!... who knew?
"He who does not know how to put his will into things at least puts a meaning into them: that is, he believes there is a will in them already."

Have you never read Kim's birth story?

"The cult surrounding Kim Jong-il extends even to his birth. He was born in Siberia in 1941 when his father, Kim Il-sung, was in exile in the former Soviet Union.

But according to official North Korean accounts, he was born in a log cabin at his father's guerrilla base on North Korea's highest mountain, Mt Paektu, in February 1942.

The event was reportedly marked by a double rainbow and a bright star in the sky."

Not only is he a year younger, but he's also an amalgam of Lincoln, Jesus, and a leprechaun, mixed in with warfare and geography.
