Although the early beginnings of this debate where somewhat engaging, lately, it has acquired that common and predictable tone of W’s press conferences (It’s the terrorists! 9/11!). It’s old, it’s stale, IT’S BORING!!
Granted, racial pandering and demagoguery bring out the high passions and low ethics that make politics somewhat bearable, at least in the entertainment sense. But come on now, can we get a little creative here? Let me elaborate a bit further.
Clearly, the zenith of all controversy centers around the concept of “candidate qualifications.” This sub-issue has reached epic proportions. Simply put, by “traditional” standards, one candidate is qualified while the other one is not. Jake Ford’s supporters claim that these standards where designed purposely to sink underachieving candidates.
Although I disagree, I would like to try to see things from their point of view. Thus I propose that we give in their arguments and set a whole new of set standard to judge competing candidates for the 9th District. How about we settle this race by say, a wrestling match perhaps? Boxing, anybody? Karaoke? Dance-off? These are just some of the alternatives out there that seem to work better for some candidates.Evidently, by rearranging qualification standards, one of these candidates would have a considerable advantage over the other one. And the winner would be the buffoon-elected to represent us in the circus that takes place at the capitol in DC. Further, the proceeds of the match should go straight to educational programs, to ensure that future voters get the resources and knowledge to discern well between a right choice and a joke.
