Why did we waste our time going to all those forums?
Why did the candidate's waste their time walking all of those neighborhoods?
Why did anyone waste any money on this election when we KNEW we were going up against a machine? A machine that was destined to crush anything not made of Richardson Coalition blood?
I feel like a huge idiot for wasting so much of my time getting involved in local politics. Because that's exactly what it was; a waste. This council was set the second that dumb mailer came out and we should've all just packed up and gone home. I'm sure this is exactly what they want though- Kill all interest in city government while they're still young! Let 'em know it's fixed and that they'll never win, then maybe they'll stop paying attention and we can get back to running the show our way.
Well, sorry but I won't. Luckily, I'm rebellious by nature so this only makes me want to pay closer attention, stay more involved, and work so much harder next time to make sure that at least some balance exists on the council.
Two good things did come from this election, though. First, I think the Bache-Wiig's might finally adopt me, and second, I got to meet Chuck Eismann last night.....he handed me a membership form, I signed it in blood, and then I only had to give him one of my children for his baby stew (which is good news because I'd heard the going rate is normally two- he must like me!)....
Mayor Destiny....has nice ring to it.
It's possible (maybe not probable) that Gary will be off the council by 2525...but who knows, he acts quite cyborgish from time to time so I wouldn't be surprised if he was still our Pope...er, I mean Mayor.
This one's for you Rapist Glasses:
