Git Off My Trans Am!

A politican who promises not to get in bed with special interests -- just your sister? That's Tim Nieukirk. The write-in candidate for Illinois Governor has developed a following with his bizarre ads on YouTube -- and apparently only on YouTube.

From the Associated Press:

He'll blindside firefighters rushing to save cats caught in a tree. He won't climb into bed with special interests, but he will with your sister. And he goes after a breed of criminal that most politicians prefer to ignore - the Hamburglar.

As for getting into bed with your sister, that's one of his campaign platforms.

Check out one of his ads here and "get Nieuked."

The current Governor, Rod Blagojevich (D), doesn't hang around the state capital of Springfield. Mr Nieukirk tells the AP he would: "I'm more than happy to move into the mansion. I need to get out of my parents' house." (AP)
