GOP Votes Potter Over Scrooge For Man of the Year

'Ebenezer had my vote until he suddenly went all lefty on us.'

(SNN) - At the Republican Party annual Christmas (Only) party and policy convention, the delegates selected businessman Henry Potter of the movie, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ over long-time favorite, Ebenezer Scrooge of Dicken’s classic “A Christmas Carol”, as their ‘Man of the Year’.

Convention chairman, Donald Trump, explained the thinking behind the upset win.

“What we try to do is select the person, well, okay, the man, that best exemplifies conservative ideology,” said Trump. “Although fictional characters, these men both are sterling examples of the Republican dream.”

Going into the convention, according to pollsters, it looked like Jacob Marley’s frugal partner had the edge; but after people compared ol’ Ebenezer to the Grinch, whose heart grew three sizes that day, Potter received a surge of support.

“I was sure Scrooge would win, playing in the much bigger market of London, than in tiny Bedford Falls like Potter,” admitted Trump. “Unfortunately for him, however, he began dabbling in the supernatural which, I believe, caused him to go insane and give away money to poor people. Potter, however, never did give up the eight grand he stole and stuck to conservative principles throughout his life. I understand he was the inspiration for Mitt Romney.”

The convention discussed having another award for ‘the fairer gender’ but became bogged down with the name. They finally settled on “Little Woman of the Year”. It will be awarded next year if the female wing of the party are very good girls and do as they’re told.
