This article also gets our "Now THAT's journalism" award for the classic closing line: "He was unharmed, but had sticky clothes."

"Jonathon 'The Impaler' Sharkey is running as the only self-described satanic vampire candidate in the 2008 Presidential race."
Although if you remove "self-described," the list would also include Dennis Kucinich

He has promised that his first act upon assuming the Presidency will be to impale his predecessor, who will then be ex-President Bush. In fact, that's pretty much his entire platform.

I'm thinking this guy has a chance to win!

"Sharkey's pledge to impale President Bush, he makes clear, will only come into effect if he is actually elected to office. But that has still triggered action by the Secret Service, who say they have a duty to investigate any threats against the president. Sharkey, 42, says that agents from the service visited him at home with his 19-year-old wife, Spree, to investigate his impaling pledge. Sharkey told The Columbia Chronicle about the visit: 'They were telling me, when they were interrogating me, that their job was to protect Bush even after he's out of office. I'm looking at them like, 'Oh, you're going to defy me when I become president?'"

So Is King Leonidas the new Snake Plisskin?
I don't remember the Snakester shouting every sentence at the top of his lungs. Wasn't he more of the strong, silent, cool Steve McQueen type rather than the effusive Richard Harris type like Butler?

the TV addict 2007 Paley Festival Recap: HEROES
"After attending last night's HEROES panel at the 2007 Paley Festival, it's quite clear that Tim Kring secretly gave each of our favourite HEROES a hidden secondary ability - the power of comedic timing. The audience of hundreds was puddy in the panels hand, laughing at every word that came out of Greg Grunberg's (Matt Parkman) mouth and even more surprisingly Leonard Roberts (Seriously, who knew D.L. Hawkins was so funny? The guy was on fire). The following is theTVaddict's best attempt to capture the energy and excitement of the event"
