Screwtape receives a ballot

So the devils in hell were conversing about the election on earth, Screwtape and his pals.

Hohoho, says Screwtape, we've got this completely sewed up. We'll run a fair (sic hehe) election. No one can fault us. We just won't give them any choice. We'll do whatever the ballots tell us!

It will be like Hitler against Stalin, says Flaterbast.

Socialism against Corporatism, says Fluberbutt.

Coke against Pepsi, says Fizzleflatt.

Screwtape rubs his hands with glee over a box of ballots. Let's start giving them a look. Screwtape glances at the first ballot.

It says:
Jesus Christ is King. Do whatever he says.

All of a sudden a lot of sounds are heard from the gathered devils. Hissssss Hssss Hissss.

A voice, a golden voice, says "Well, he did tell you what he wanted with his ballot".
