The Chemical Element Campaign

By Timothy Hodor


The Chemical Element Campaign replays the 2004 USA presidential campaign. In this satirical, twisted version, the politicians, cabinet members, and TV and radio announcers are represented by chemical elements. Bush goes as Boron; Kerry, Osmium; Schwarzenegger, Tungsten. Here, time, history, and people are juxtaposed in a humorous, entertaining story, which shows what a farce the polls, the speeches, the media, the press, the debates, and the politicians can be.
