Impaler's Film Debut

Minnesota's most-infamous gubernatorial candidate -- the one with the cape, not the feather boa -- is the subject of a documentary film making its U.S. premiere at Minneapolis' Oak Street Cinema on May 30. "Impaler," by Texas filmmaker W. Tray White, chronicles Jonathon Sharkey's 2006 run for governor as the Vampires Witches and Pagans Party candidate. Make that a "Satanic Sanguinary Vampyre and Hecate Witch." Sharkey's political platform runs the gamut from pulling troops out of Iraq and legalizing gay marriage to punishing "terrorists" (those who engage in anything from drunken driving to murder) with impalement.  Filmmaker White and Sharkey, who is running for U.S. president in 2008, will take part in a Q&A after the Oak Street screening. Watch the trailer.
