McCain Criticized for Stealing Attention from Small-party Candidates
Only one day after the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention, the media has accused John McCain of not only stealing fellow- presidential-candidate Barack Obama’s thunder, but also of snatching the spotlight from yet another first in this political campaign: the first ever Monster Party ticket.
Today, Mothman, the Monster Party presidential nominee, announced his choice of running mate–an event which was sadly neglected by the media, owing to the excitement over McCain’s announcement this afternoon.

In a stunning move, Mothman bypassed such hopefuls as Bigfoot, the Jersey Devil, and Hillary Clinton, and surprised his party by selecting a running mate from his own state of West Virginia: the Braxton County Monster.
Although this decision does not fall on the anniversary of any historic occasion relevant to the candidates, both Mothman and the Braxton County Monster assured reporters that they are confident the Monster Party ticket itself should draw in plenty of attention from voters.
