Randall Terry Glitter-Bombed

I've been pretty consistent about my dislike of glitter-bombing pretty much since I first heard of it.  Today is my day to be inconsistent.

Last week, a group of "lesser known" presidential candidates participated in the Lesser Known Candidate Debate over in Manchester, NH.  True to form, I'd never heard of any of them except fake Democratic candidate/anti-abortion activist, Randall Terry.  One of the more interesting candidates at this event was someone named Vermin Supreme, who is also running as a candidate for the 2012 Democratic nomination.  Check out Vermin Supreme's chief political selling points from his Wikipedia page:
Supreme is known for wearing a boot shaped hat and carrying a large toothbrush. He claims that if elected President of the United States he will pass a law requiring people to brush their teeth. He also campaigned in 2012 on a platform of Zombie apocalypse awareness, and promises a pony for every American.
These various lesser known candidates were participating in a lesser known debate on December 19, 2011, when Vermin Supreme apparently felt compelled by a spiritual higher power to sprinkle glitter all over Randall Terry in a misguided effort to turn him gay:


Anyway, this incident made me chuckle when all previous glitter-bomb events made me fume.  After all, it's hard to get terribly outraged when one of the presidential candidates wears a boot on his head.  You kind of expect political theater, y'know?
