(indieWIRE/ 11.7.00) — So, you haven’t yet flipped the coin and decided
between Bush and Gore? In this new age of technology, let the Internet help you to decide which is the lesser of two evils. There is a wealth of
information and political commentary available about Bore and Dubya
on the WWW — named after the Texan and invented by our VP!
The visionaries who brought the Elian Gonzales Whassup! parody to the Web
are back with a look at the man who invented the Internet, Al Gore. At
Bonrop.net, we see that our vice-president was also the first man to walk on

JibJab.com reveals the true colors of the two major candidates on “Sound
Bytes.” That show takes the most important and poignant parts of their
speeches and packages them together for a quick rundown of their interests. For Gore,
it’s big tobacco, the HMOs, pharmaceutical companies. George W. apparently
promises to learn to read a Dr. Seuss book. I must have missed that debate.
JibJab also has a little Hillary info for Big Apple voters.
It’s tough to get past the “Romp Girls” at Romp.com, But try to click the

On Television.com, the two candidates visit Joe K. Citizen’s house and
barbeque for the family, hoping to win their votes. Donald Trump makes a
special appearance and cleans the bathroom.
IFILM has devoted a piece of its site to political content. They’ve got a
1973 look at Bush and a promotional piece from The Simpsons
