The OK Party (OKP)

The OK Party is an AH.com political party established by HueyLong in July 2008. It contested the 2008 elections but failed to win any seats in Parliament. The OK Party has one member serving in the current government: HueyLong, who was appointed Minister of Everything OK in the 2008 AH.com Cabinet by President Sargon on August 4, 2008. According to its spokesperson: “the OK party is, well, OK. Not okay. OK.”


History

HueyLong formed the OK Party on July 30, 2008, posting the OK Manifesto, the Artist's Caucus OK Manifesto, and the OK Party Loyalty Test. The OKP registered for the 2008 parliamentary elections the next day but won only 6.32% of the vote, failing to win any seats by the remarkably small margin of 0.35%. On August 4, 2008, President Sargon appointed party chairman HueyLong Minister of Everything OK, head of the new Ministry of OK.


The OK Manifesto

Things are going to be OK.

What's the point of OK? Well, what's the point of anything?

The OK Party emphatically rejects anything that is not OK, and fully supports anything that is.

The better you understand something, the more OK it turns out to be.

The OK Party says, “Don't be fooled into thinking there has to be a reason for everything.”

The OK Manifesto reveals the surprising truth about people and situations.

There is no real secret to feeling OK.

Never overestimate the remarkable abilities of the OK Party

The OK Party may be the preferred party of other people such as yourself.

Please wake up every morning knowing that things are going to be OK.

Things are going to be OK.


Artist's Caucus OK Manifesto

1. “OK art” is an OK idea, –not great, but not bad either.

2. OK artists make OK art.

3. OK artists really want to make great art, they shoot for the stars, but their work ends up being just OK. OK artists are OK with this.

4. Art enthusiasts and cynics alike, leave an OK art exhibition saying “that was OK”. No one is blown away but they don't feel cheated either.

5. OK art will probably not make it into art history; although someone in the future might find an OK artwork and think “this isn't so bad.”

6. “Different” and “interesting” are two adjectives often overheard at OK art exhibitions.

7. OK artists are OK with bad reviews, but naturally they prefer good reviews and they keep those and post them on the internet.

8. It's a good idea to call yourself an OK artist before somebody else does.

9. Ambitious, megalomaniac artists feel great relief when they accept they're just OK.

10. OK ideas are defended passionately but not more than that.

11. (this point was erased during editing)

12. OK art is unlikely to be over or underrated.

13. We hate artists that are A-OK, those bastards!

14. There is no point in making an OK art movement, although fleeting consideration of the concept would be OK.
