Ha. Yall see this one?Â Butler Shaffer:
“It has been some 3-4 years since I last held my classic “election” on the first day of class in our law school.Â (The students – 2nd and 3rd year -Â don’t know who I am, and I hand out the ballots before doing or saying anything.)Â The candidates for office are Candidate A and Candidate B, each of whom is identifiedÂ notÂ by name, but by description of behavior and/or policies advocated.Â In the past, Candidate B receives – on the average – about 75% of the vote.Â Today – with 22 students voting – Candidate B received 20 votes [just under 91% of the vote] while Candidate A got 2 votes [just over 9%].
“Oh, yes, for those who haven’t followed this exercise before -Â of which I have reported herein in the past – Candidate A is a composite ofÂ such RevolutionaryÂ War heroes as George Washington, John Hancock, Sam Adams, Paul Revere, etc..Â Candidate B is Adolf Hitler.”
