A Lesson In Politics

After the recent elections for mayor in my current hometown, I was reminded of a lesson in politics that I learned years ago. The lesson is quite simple, as all profound things.

The best and most qualified candidate does not always win an election

Sad, and unfortunately all too true. Just to show that my feelings are not caused because I’m a sore loser, a simple and cursory comparison of the candidate’s resumes would tell the tale.

Then, there’s what the winner said after the election. She was quote saying

“I guess Kyle [the city where I live] just has a thing for young mayors” Kyle Buda Eagle, Wednesday February 17, 2010

Yeah, I couldn’t believe that either.
