going a little nuts

What is it about the election process that brings out the crazy in people?

Yesterday we had local elections and the people of our great city had an opportunity to make a difference in the form of a new mayor and new city council members. We've had years of a weak city council that has seemed to have no obvious agenda besides immediate revenue, with little regard for the future.

Hopefully this election will make a difference. Finally the citizens have demanded change!

Which should mean that the next time something goes wrong around here I won’t have to write a letter to the editor like this one some concerned citizen sent to yesterday's paper-

If Obama gets nod, switch to McCain

If Hillary Clinton is not the Democratic nominee, don't expect all her passionate supporters to gleefully jump aboard Barack Obama's bandwagon.

I would never vote for the man who spoiled my dream of seeing a woman president in my lifetime.

If Obama is the Democratic nominee, I will hop aboard the bandwagon of John McCain. At least he has a wealth of experience. – Name withheld


Is she serious? Her DREAM of a woman president? A woman? That’s all that matters to this person, the sex of the candidate? What about MY dream of troops being withdrawn from Iraq? Or of a better education for my children? And who is in charge of picking the letters for publication? I mean this isn’t some podunk little town, we live in a CITY with a substantial population and that’s the best they could do?--Sorry, I got a little carried away.

For further evidence of insanity you need look no further than YouTube. Here’s a glimpse of the Huck and what might have been going on at State Dinners if things had gone his way.

I didn't know that Mike Huckabee was in Lynard Synard.

I also don't understand how "It's time for a woman President" Feminists could stand to be represented by Hillary Clinton. Does anyone remember her husband. Economics good, ehtics not so much.

And did you hear, Obama is black.

I imagine that there are many things we don't know and don't want to know about ol'Mike.

That "black" thing is just a rumor started by Mondale's old girlfriend.
