Alas, the Green Lantern Corps was ineligible to vote in North Carolina

Hal Jordan

Hal Jordan

Contrary to 50 years of DC Comics continuity, it turns out that Coast City isn’t in California, but rather somewhere in North Carolina. As incontrovertible evidence, allow me to direct you to the website of one Hal Jordan, former Republican candidate for North Carolina’s 8th congressional district.

That’s right, Hal Jordan for Congress. Take that, Oliver Queen!

A conservative businessman, Jordan describes himself as “pro-life, a member of the NRA and a supporter of traditional marriage between one man and one woman.” However, he makes no mention of a career as a test pilot or stint as a spirit of vengeance. In Jordan’s defense, the latter is difficult to work into a brief biography.

None of that matters now, though: Jordan came in third in the May 4 Republican primary, behind Tim D’Annunzio and Harold Johnson, who face a runoff election next month.

It’s probably all for the best, as there was undoubtedly a pesky reporter waiting to ambush Jordan with a question about how an intergalactic police force infringes on the sovereignty of the United States. Either that, or something about Parallax. Stupid “gotcha” journalism.

But what’s his stance on illegal aliens?

Hollywood’s been courting comic fans and super hero movie fans for years, maybe it’s time for Politicians to do the same. Maybe the “comic book vote” will swing elections! Let’s make this happen!

I think you can extrapolate his stance on illegal aliens accurately from ‘A conservative businessman, Jordan describes himself as “pro-life, a member of the NRA and a supporter of traditional marriage between one man and one woman’

Most definitely a different Hal. This guy’s a religious flunky if ever I saw one.

Heh…nice. Candidate Hal Jordan caught my eye last night on Countdown, though he barely gets a mention as Keith Olbermann was only reporting on the race to point out that the guy leading the race is apparently out of his damn mind.

Is his position on marriage that it should be between one woman and one man , or one man and one member of an alien race who looks like she’s 12 but is totally one hundred years old?

I demand he appear on The Daily Show and be interview by Jon Stewart!

… in costume!

This guy sounds more like Sinestro than Green Lantern! WAIT, maybe he’s Abin Sur in disguise!

Eh, I’d rather vote for Kyle Rayner.
