I doubt we're going to come up with a quick way to do write-ins for the RII.
Just how painful was it? I'll try it out. Maybe we can make it a little

FWIW, I'm NOT saying I would vote for Pee Wee either, but he HAS SHOWN
greater intelligence than many office holders. And he has significantly
less baggage than many. So, I might consider voting for him if he decides
to run for office.
