This week’s Vampire Bait title goes out to a very special (dearly departed) man. He was a born leader who helped inspire a national revolution. He was a passionate fighter — a good-doer who aimed to eradicate moral and constitutional injustices. He respected the law and promoted economic and financial modernization in this country. Oh, and did we mention that he could whittle a stake and plunge it into the nearest fanged creature faster than Alaric Saltzman ever could? So, honor of 2012 Presidents Day and all of his evil-banishing achievements, it is with great privilege that we present this week’s prestigious Vampire Bait award to none other than….
