Election guide lacks pictures, life
Written by Bwog Staff
We love the Columbia Political Union, we really do–but would it have killed them to have made their election guide read a little less like an obituary? It is comprehensive; all the candidates are there, in sensible Times New Roman–even Mike “Who do you want to nuke?” Gravel has his own page. The Columbia Dems and Republicans got their obligatory space up front, in which the Dems urged us all to “think deeply” about the candidates and the GOP, in an essay entitled “Why you should vote Republican in 2008,” didn’t even try to convince us. The Columbia Libertarians, who’ve gotten the better press of both of them, were conspicuously absent.
Nonetheless, there is a place in the world for blandness. We have no doubt that the CPU at least takes its objectivity seriously, and that they must have learned a lot putting this together. The FEC, we’ve heard, has decent job security.
