Oddly enough, the candidate that one of the women defeated was none other than John Ashcroft.

I'll have you know that we have not had a crooked election in this city in well over a year.

Now hold on there, Tico. We had dead folks voting here recently, too. Why does Chicago always get the credit for this kind of creativity?

Because they perfected the art??

(We had several dozen dead people voting here in Boston in the 2004 elections too! Very Happy )

Bill Bradley some years back was speaking in Madison Co. NC , and brought down the house with a quip about hoping to be buried there, so he could continue to participate in the electoral process after his demise.

The difference in Pakistan was that the dead women were duly elected.

I see a certain logic there Spendy. They vote often enough, why should they not stand (be propped up) as candidates?

Steve-

Don't you think that we do have a tendency to elect the dead. Vicariously. Those who have retained most of the views of their parents and grandparents are much more acceptable to voters than those who fly by the seat of their pants. Most of our leaders more or less represent the dead.

I'm just posting so there'd be an avatar on this page. It was looking a bit naked, and was offending my delicate sensibilities. Carry on.

@Steve 41oo,
What further have you to say Steve? I should have thought it pretty obvious.

@spendius,
well as I was saying three years ago last Wednesday...

the Pakistanis managed to elect dead women, a reversal of the normal dead voting for the living. But it was well in the past now, probably they passed on.
