Actual comment from Facebook, re. this post:

"Fuck you, wonkette, for debasing MLP FIM. Burn in hell."

As promised, we offer this clarification: To the best of our knowledge, Big McIntosh has never run for elective office.

For that matter, the actual mechanics of Equestria's political system are a matter of much speculation, mostly in fanfic, the best of which tends to evoke Sir Pterry Pratchett.

Ah, but as we'll see, there's all sorts of important details that the American version left out, and those omissions get the Bible off the hook. Also, biblical servitude would be way better than the bondage of the modern welfare state.

Swanson actually mentions that letter in his chapter on Hawthorne, as one more indication that Hawthorne was playing with demons. My guess is that Swanson doesn't bother with a chapter on Melville because he considered Hawthorne the juicier target, what with all the Puritan ancestors that he betrayed.

Or maybe all the whaling stuff just put him to sleep.

Tamir Rice and John Crawford were both brandishing what looked like weapons, and failed to drop them in the .3 seconds between the cops' arrival and their being shot dead. Want to live? Evolve precognitive reaction time!
