I can’t say I blame the other 42%.
The following excerpt from this document prettily sums up how I feel in the aftermath of our federal election so that’s all I will say on the matter.
Three wolves and six goats are discussing what
to have for dinner. One courageous goat makes
an impassioned case: “We should put it to a vote!” The
other goats fear for his life, but surprisingly, the wolves
acquiesce. But when everyone is preparing to vote, the
wolves take three of the goats aside.
“Vote with us to make the other three goats dinner,”
they threaten. “Otherwise, vote or no vote, we’ll eat you.”
The other three goats are shocked by the outcome of
the election: a majority, including their comrades, has
voted for them to be killed and eaten. They protest in
outrage and terror, but the goat who first suggested the
vote rebukes them: “Be thankful you live in a democracy!
At least we got to have a say in this!”
In other news, keep your eyes pealed here early next week (I hope!) for a little gift to the three of you who read this blog. A thank you, if you will, for putting up with my political rantings.
