A message from Janie Gibbs, Republican presidential candidate

Janie Gibbs candidate

My presidential candidacy can be summed up in one word: boom! Most politicians are liars and, as my friend Harriet would say, finks, but I'm here to blow the lid off government by taking a hard line against parents, phonies, and forced participation in dance class. I'm a scientist, but not one of those do-gooder types; I say mix chemicals first, ask questions later. Any traitors or spies in my administration will be dealt with accordingly.

— Janie Gibbs,
Harriet the Spy
