Q)We were wondering what great Cthulhu's stance was on foreign policy/ foreign aid? A) The Great Cthulhu views our foreign neighbors as equals to the United States. It encourages trade in all forms, including slave trade, child trafficking, and it will continue to give Primary Trading Partner status to the country which sells the most children worldwide.

Q)How will Cthulhu deal with a strongly bipartisan Congress? How does Cthulhu plan to deal with the budget deficit? Has Cthulhu yet chosen a running mate? If so, who is it, and from whence did it come? Given that the candidate is now dead and dreaming in the Pacific, what measures will be taken to speed its awakening should it be elected president?

A) Cthulhu will have no problem dealing with Congress, as they will be the first to be eaten. The budget deficit will shrink drastically once Cthulhu cuts unnecessary spendings like Defense, Welfare and Social Security. Mass support of Cthulhu will raise the its awareness of the need to take control of our suffering country, and should lead to its return. The Great Cthulhu will awaken in time to take its presidential oath.

Cthulhu for President

Political parody of the US presidential election

Cosmic horror and 2016 US Presidential candidate Cthulhu, on the campaign trail, from

Cthulhu for President is a political parody of the United States presidential election, in which Cthulhu, the fictional cosmic horror, runs for President of the United States. Parody campaigns with accompanying political advertising materials were run for each of the US presidential elections since 1996, usually with the motto "Cthulhu for President: Why settle for the lesser evil?"[1] Similar parody campaigns have been run for presidencies of other countries.


Cthulhu in its city of R'lyeh

Cthulhu is a fictional cosmic entity created by writer H. P. Lovecraft and described as an enormous clawed and winged anthropoid shape, with a head like an octopus, which is worshipped by maniacal cultists across the world. The creature was first introduced in the 1928 short story "The Call of Cthulhu", but has since been featured in numerous popular culture references.[2][3]


The American games company Chaosium publishes multiple games about Lovecraft's work, starting with the Call of Cthulhu horror role-playing game in 1981. In 1996, Chaosium published a "Cthulhu for President" political campaign kit, including a campaign button, posters, yard and window signs, speeches, and a vision booklet, "Contract on America" (parodying the 1994 Contract with America).[4][5] This won the 1996 Origins Award for Best Game Accessory.[6]

In 2004, Chaosium, in cooperation with Chris O'Neill and Daniel Landis of 9th Level Games, a humorous role-playing game publisher, made a complete "Cthulhu for President" beer and pretzels role-playing game.[7] In it, the players portray Elder Party campaign staffers serving the Great Old Ones in an occult political struggle.[8] The 2016 edition parodies the 2016 United States presidential election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.[9]


The Cthulhu for President parody campaign recurred over multiple election cycles.[1] was the home of the first Internet Cthulhu for President campaign, starting in 1997, accompanying the Chaosium campaign materials,[10] and running at least through 2007.[11] Buttons and T-shirts depicting Cthulhu with the "Why Choose the Lesser Evil? Cthulhu for President" logo were sold during the 2000 and 2004 United States presidential election campaigns.[3] Cthulhu for President videos and posters were made for the United States presidential elections in 2008 and 2012, and for the 2010 Polish presidential election.[7] A Spanish website (Vota Cthulhu: Partido No Euclidiano Por el Fin de los Días – the Non-Euclidian Party for the End of Days) supported Cthulhu for President in the 2011 Spanish general election.[12][13] A Cthulhu 2012 campaign website gave Cthulhu a vice presidential candidate, Dagon, from one of Lovecraft's earliest stories.[14][13]

Cthulhu for America[edit]

The 2016 United States presidential election cycle included a larger "Cthulhu for America" website, which drew celebrity and international attention.[2][7] The site was launched in August 2015, and included merchandise like t-shirts, stickers, flyers, and mugs with slogans including "Why choose the lesser evil?", and a take on Black Lives Matter/All Lives Matter: "No lives matter".[7] Its Twitter account had over 35,000 followers.[1] In December 2015 Cthulhu for America put out a War on Christmas kit including Cthulhu stickers meant to be put over the logo of Starbucks coffee cups.[15] The site gave credit to Chaosium for the 1990s and 2000s "campaigns" but distanced itself from the company.[7]

The Cthulhu for America campaign was "endorsed" by Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and his Twitter followers in June 2016 (also referring to the Spanish Vota Cthulhu page).[16][13] del Toro also inverted the Cthulhu for President logo (of, an alternate URL of Cthulhu for America), and called it "Donald Cthrump", referring to candidate Donald Trump.[17]

In September 2016, American horror author Stephen King wrote that Donald Trump was actually Cthulhu in disguise: "The absurd hairdo isn't absurd at all. It hides the tentacles."[18] The Cthulhu for America campaign responded with an angry denial ("Trump could barely hope to be 1/63 as great as I am if he weren't such a buffoon")[19] with a longer statement including references to many of King's books.[20][21][22] The campaign had earlier made a similar rebuttal to John Boehner's statement that candidate Ted Cruz was "Lucifer in the flesh",[23] writing "The only being of pure evil in this race is myself".[24]

Cthulhu for America continued into the 2020 United States presidential election, this time with the slogan "Wreck. World. Worse.", parodying the Build Back Better slogan of the Joe Biden 2020 presidential campaign.[25] When the initial logo used for the 2020 Republican National Convention had a tangle of lines apparently emerging from the Republican elephant, it was popularly compared to Cthulhu and its tentacles.[26]

When Bill Kristol, editor of the conservative "Weekly Standard," said over the weekend that an independent candidate would be entering the race for president, this probably wasn't what he had in mind.

Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro responded to Kristol's tweet by suggesting that Cthulhu seek the highest office in the land:

The "Pacific Rim" director followed that up with a series of tweets making it clear where he stands, and it's as a devoted but ultimately doomed follower of author H.P. Lovecraft's most enduring creation:

The hunger for an independent choice, even a dead/dreaming Old One that would drive all mankind into madness, appeared to be very real, given the replies:

Although there are a number of online efforts backing Cthulhu for president, most appear aimed at selling T-shirts.

At least, we should probably hope that's their only aim.

There is a slave trade here. - by the bewildered, frightened exclamation of Nastya, Atlu realized that in their world this is a wild rarity or even a relic of the distant past. - Generally, ashkhulai is forbidden to have a human slave, but slavery is widespread in the empire.

A very good summary - and I felt that he was smiling his nasty greasy smile. - Have we really got a vacancy in the comfort department. - Yes, Elena got pregnant, went, so to speak, on a special maternity leave. So I'm awaiting your instructions regarding your wife. - But I would not like to impose it, so that somehow by pull.

Now discussing:

I was very hurt and hurt. And then she leaned on me and began kissing me on the lips and ordered me to suck her tongue. I obeyed and began to suck him and get very excited, I don't know why.
