Vampire for President?

During the 2008 presidential election, Susie Flynn, a 10 year old, made a bid for the highest office in the land. Except she wasn't 10. And she wasn't a girl.

Now a vampire is making a bid for a 2012 campaign, supposedly as a republican candidate. He is known as John Sharkey, The Impaler. His campaign site is: You might want to take a look.  He is also interested in being governor of Minnesota.

The challenge: Who is John Sharkey? What evidence is there that the Republican party is actually taking him seriously? Is this campaign a front for some other cause (as was the case with Susie Flynn)? If so, what?

Sample Web 2.0 posts about him and his campaign. Look for clues about the nature of the campaign. Who is taking him seriously?
