Student Council ElectionPosted: June 29, 2016
It struck me recently that this year’s Presidential race reminds me of a junior high student council election. One candidate was nominated as a prank because he sits in back of the classroom, calls people names, and throws spit balls.
The other was nominated because she’s a girl, she’s run several other times and, doggone it, it’s her turn.
Another candidate has been in student council since seventh grade. He has some great ideas about how to improve the school. But he was rejected, because he’s just a big nerd.
The current student council president is well-liked by almost everyone. He is endorsing the girl, because they’re in the same pep club together.
And one of the other candidates wants to lead prayer services three times each school day, and close half of the girls’ bathrooms. Everyone thinks he’s a weirdo.
