Fucking politics, how do they work?
Edited on Tue Aug-24-10 07:50 PM by lightningandsnow
A bunch of people I know, some of whom don't even live in my city, are supporting a certain city council candidate because he's pro-Israel.

Regardless of your opinion of Israel/Palestine, they seem to have missed the memo that municipal politics has nothing to do with middle east policy.

1. If you ever figure out how it works, your brain will explode.
Who can imagine why anyone would support a local candidate for a foreign policy stance! But it happens all the time. Listen to some of the debates and you just go "huh?"

2. When my son ran for city council, four people called him and
asked if he was pro-life. Did they think that the city council decided whether or not abortion should be legal?
