Hey, imports. I don't know how many of you follow the news routinely, but... I figured I would come on here, while my press guy goes to tell the news outlets.

[ He looks away from the screen, for a moment, before back to the camera. ]

Effective...well, as soon as it can be arranged, I've decided to give up my position as ambassador of De Chima, Virginia. I'd like to thank everyone for their support, and their willingness to let me nose in on your lives and your opinions, and I hope... that in the future, you'll allow me to keep doing that.

I'm not exactly done with politics, or I'd probably have stopped breathing by this point. I'm not really in the business of giving up, but... When opportunity strikes...

[ Another pause. This one considerably longer. He tipped his head, as if he was listening to something off-screen. Of course, he was. ]

So, it's official. This one's mostly for anyone currently living in Virginia -- hopefully you'll be voting, and if you do, I'll appreciate your vote in November. I'll be running to become your elected Sentor in DC.

But, obviously, more than that, I'd appreciate hearing what's important to you. Just because I'll -- hopefully -- be one of the honorable senators for Virginia, doesn't mean I don't intend to forget about the rest of you imports. I'd like to take our voices to the Senate floor, whenever possible.

Senator, is it? I wasn't even aware we could vote in general elections.

[Admittedly this is because he is not in the habit of voting, and thus did not bother to find out.]

[Nods.] It's a good idea. I don't imagine they'd want me within a hundred yards of a polling place, though.

[Shrug.] Technopath. Back home I occasionally get accused of fraud just for existing.

Ridiculous, of course. If I were the sort to rig an election, I certainly wouldn't be that overt about it.
