Where's Vlad when we need him?

We were at the Bristol Renaissance Fair Monday, and this young woman sold my bride some jewelry. She had an interesting accent, so I asked where she was from.


“Ah,” I said, “Vlad the Impaler!”

“Yes, that’s what most people know of Rumania, Vlad. But he kept Rumania safe from the Muslims that were attacking us for hundreds of years!”

“Where’s Vlad now that we need him?”

“The Problem is, we are not willing to do what needs to be done!” she replied.

Can we run her for office? I’d vote for her. (Quotes are probably not exact, but pretty close.)
