This community started as an extended riff on the kinds of jokes that Jay Leno was making about the two candidates being very touchy-feely together. Since then, it's mostly evolved into a place for appreciating that these are two very attractive men who also look adorable when they hug. There's a fair amount of joking around and silliness too.
Welcomed here: - photos - fanart - icons celebrating the guys, separately or together
It's not exactly a place for insightful political commentary; more a place for giggling.
PLEASE NOTE: THE LINKS FOR "THIS LAND" AND THE TONGUE-IN-CHEEK JOHN/JOHN SONGVID HAVE ALREADY BEEN POSTED 14 MILLION TIMES. BY POPULAR DEMAND, WE ARE PROVIDING THEM HERE:
Due to the giant nature of this community, at the great expense of kinneas' life, all entries are categorized and archived in the Memories section for convenience.
Actually, this is not really the place for insightful political commentary (although such a thing isn't frowned on if it happens!), it's a place for giggling at silly jokes and squeeing over two good-looking men. For serious discussion of Kerry/Edwards, the election, and the issues, try such places as johnkerry04, johnsquared, kerry_for_us, kerryedwards, or other such places.
But, nevertheless, even among all this silliness we have to encourage all to register to vote (pleeeease)! Because victory in November means four more years of this sort of wonderful nonsense.
Obvious rules are: - Don't be an idiot - Have some perspective, keep your lines between comedy (or fantasy, if you're weird) and reality very firmly drawn (see rule #1); everyone knows these guys aren't actually gay, and tinhattery (a.k.a. "taking it all seriously") is not welcome - LJ-cut large images and anything non-work safe. - Please abstain from "introduction posts" ("Hi! I'm xticklebicklex! I LUV JXJ! This is my first post! XDDD" and the like) and provide some "content" (see above). - If you wish to post an icon, wait until you have at least three or therabouts before doing so. - For the love of (insert entity here), please don't double-post. - Play nice or I'll get the hose. You kids get off my lawn!! - Don't run with sharp objects.
