I don't think that conservative America is ready for the happiness that would follow a mass distribution of cookies. Like environmentalist policies and sensible gun control, the right wing gets very nervous when we talk about cookie freedom. The surplus of cookies that your policies would create would undermine their penchant for reactionary government and introduce far too much sense into the political process. It's very difficult, you see, not to think about what you're going to say when you have to finish your cookie first, and if you are under the relaxing, contentment-inducing effects of a cookie, you are less likely to panic when something bad happens. With a cookie in front of you, you know everything will be fine, and I think that scares most of conservative America.
As a result, conservative America will be turning out in droves to vote against you, and since they are conservatives, their only other choice is Republican. You are simply too much for them to handle. The only people that would be sensible enough to support a pro-cookie candidate would be the more open-minded liberal population, who would then find themselves split between Spel ... and Obama. So while I think that you and your policies are indeed the best thing for this country, I'm sorry, Spel. I won't be voting for you next Tuesday. You see, I believe a vote for Spel is a vote for McCain.
It's very sad that you are the Nader of the 2008 elections. Maybe next time.
