Re: Strange Game
It was a frigging great move if the motivation was to get the utterly corrupt unelected rats to reveal themselves, and to in general, just burn the thing down so a fresh start could be made without a bloody civil war. Pretty much everyone I know of who voted that way had that in mind. No one actually liked either candidate. (this should sound familiar to most in almost any country)
But it's funny to watch the rats scurry when one who didn't go through the normal selection process (normally needed for the less wealthy candidates) got in. The unelected, used to having the actual power - are freaking out, it's obvious (from the depts to the news agencies) and if you understand what's really going on, it's entertaining.
