Republicans To Unveil Lincoln Hologram In Desperate Last Bid To Win Elections
WASHINGTON D.C, USA (The Global Edition) – Mitt Romney’s campaign team plans to host a gathering during which the hologram of former president Abraham Lincoln will address voters in a desperate attempt to remind them of their Republican values, sources say.
“Because Mitt has such a poor image in the liberal media, many Americans have forgotten that one of our greatest presidents in history, Abraham Lincoln, was a Republican too,” Matt Rhoades, Mr. Romney’s campaign manager told reporters.
“We need to remind them of that, and what better way to do it than with the help of new technologies? Mr. Lincoln’s hologram will basically just say the same things Mitt Romney says, but it will have an entirely different effect and resonance with the general public because unlike most Republican party members today, he was a well-respected figure.”
Mr. Rhoades also told journalists from The Global Edition that the Romney campaign has already tried the new hologram, a virtual image of the late president who ended slavery and promoted economic and financial modernization. In a grand rehearsal, the Lincoln hologram addressed several focus groups.
Beth Myers, an adviser to Mr. Romney’s campaign, said the rehearsal was a success.
“Most of our test audience members thought his speech was powerful and moving,” Ms. Meyers said. “Almost everyone was left speechless when the former president’s hologram said deep things like ‘We, members of the Republican party, are more sure than ever of our decision to vote Romney,” she added.
Mr. Rhoades told journalists from the Global Edition that everything is set for the hologram to appear and surprise supporters at an upcoming fundraiser, but that certain technical difficulties such as “freezing, buffering, and completely shutting down in the middle of the speech” have yet to be resolved.
