IN the book (and once in the tv show) there's been a factoid about some fictional character (or nonhuman) being a US presidential candidate.

This isn't because some group of fans got together and nominated their favorite character for president.

It's a result of our election process which allows people to write-in the name of a candidate if they don't like any of the other choices. the tradition of writing in joke candidates goes back decades. This is especially appealing in years when all the choices are horrible (like our most recent one).

If you give people a blank slate, somebody's going to draw a cock and balls.
