First I'd like to tackle today's article on yesterday's UNITE rally.
If I had to guess today on who would win the election, I'd say UNITE easily, but this article reveals a great deal. For starters we can deduce that the Alligator has their heads farther up UNITE's than John Boyles was up Mike Provenzale's in 2004. Another sad point is when the student paper starts sentences with Brandon Siler and Jared rather than Jared and his veep...Jared may win the presidency but like MILTON in OFFICE SPACE he may need to relocate his office to STORAGE B so that Brandon can have his office and use the traditional Veep's office to store his trophies, NFL offers, and jock straps.
"HI JARED.... WHAT'S HAPPENING?........
JARED WE"RE GONNA NEED TO GO AHEAD AND MOVE YOU DOWN TO STORAGE B, SO IF YOU COULD JUST GO AHEAD AND PACK UP YOUR STUFF AND MOVE IT DOWN THERE....THAT WOULD BE TERRIFIC." HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH

Another blooper from today's Alligator is this classic quote:
'However, party officials said Unite is not based on athletic celebrity. "I want to make the Cabinet open to everybody, you know what I'm saying?" Siler said.'
No Mr. Siler we don't know what you're saying because you've been a real Vice Presidential candidate for less than an hour, could you kindly elaborate? Also, Adam Roberts, Tommy Jardon, and Allison Cullin should step up and groom their veep candidate:
The word "ass" is pretty much harmless, but it's kinda like bordering on obscenity. 'Let's kick ass' is great on the football field but in SG as silly as it may sound, it might upset some of the more traditionalist dispositions to see an exec candidate of a 'major party' being quoted w/ a potty mouth. (((Adam, Tommy, Allison, this is your moment to pat yourself on the...back...I just called you ragtag group of sellouts a 'major party' :o) ))))
Also, here are a few phrases to keep your candidate from saying:
Do you know what I'm sayin?
Can you dig it?
We gonna take it to the hole,
UNITE finnah win dis shit,
Basically, I'm pushing for good English and a distancing away from street slangs and phrases. But why am I even addressing this at the snooty ex-Impact/Progress kids, they're not in control, hell they couldn't even order themselves a pizza at this point. Andrea you were right and I should have believed you when you told me that 40% of UNITE's candidates were MVP and that w/o you guys these people couldn't win, but still, I have to ask why did y'all join them?
I look at Brandon Siler, don't know the guy, he looks tough, probably intelligent (3.8 GPA right?) so why did this guy bow down and take scraps for dinner...why didn't he run? Oh well.
I'm also pleased to see Lola standing for equality for all students and fighting against the 'priviledged few.' Lola Bovell was originally with the Fall 2004 VOICE PARTY...bet you SG experts or Gatorpedia addicts didn't know that. Voice threatened to run against Access and little group called Accion UF led by myself and Fernando Nin forced Andre to slate Ansell Fernandez, Lola Bovell, and Analiz Velasquez. Ansell was Kathy Valle's pick, Danny Martinez had picked someone else, Fernando picked Analiz, and I am proud to say picked LOLA! When we registered VOICE and got a line in the paper Andre started calling our three lead candidates trying to bribe them, but they stayed loyal VOICE, finally Andre took the deal and we got what we believed (rightly so in hindsight) to have been a knotch up of Hispanic leaders. Roberts & Jardon may ignore VOICE, but HISTORY speaks louder....even today 1.5yrs later UNITE has VOICE to thank for one of its three exec. candidates. Good luck Lola =o)...and let's all be sure to save every email and make sure to invest in discrete recording devices =o) HAHAH j/k of course.
Well that's it for today. I'm glad to see the Rev. Boyles and his drunken Greek vikings headed over to Hillel to try and capitalize on the Jewish vote. In this heated racial election, where minorities are used for leverage (I don't consider Jared Hispanic and that's my own opinion), then I think its great John is trying to rack up on ethnic blocs.
Anyone want to challenge me? Please do, but please don't accuse me of being insensitive or politically incorrect, because I'm not used to that kind of verbal abuse and it really hurts my feelings.....Vote For No One! But if you must check out either Lola or Susan (if she's even still running), but only if you absolutely must. bye bye
