Conflicted about the Presidential Election? Vote for Dagwood Bumstead!

Categories: Comics, Announcements

Just when you thought this 2012 presidential campaign year couldn’t get any more cantankerous, along comes a brand-new candidate to lighten the election mood. Readers will be delighted to learn that Dagwood Bumstead is throwing his hat into the ring during a special series slated to appear in newspapers worldwide from Nov. 1-7.

“Because everybody is having such conflicted opinions about the Presidential candidates this year, we thought we’d have some fun in the comic strip and have Dagwood run for President,” said creator Dean Young. “As we all know, the road to the White House can be very bumpy and, in his typical bumbling fashion, Dagwood takes a rather convoluted route.”

From his platform of making it safe to go out at night to getting everybody to pull together, Dagwood sounds like a shoo-in as a write-in candidate. But will he get enough votes? Stay ‘tooned.
