Little Nutthings® was represented at two recent Oktoberfests in the DC area. Attendees were asked to vote for their favorite LN nut. It was a crowded ballot with nine official candidates, including Left-wing Nut and Right-wing Nut.
It’s a tough field this year; with just a week to go, any nut could win. It all depends on voter turnout during election week, here, Oct. 31 – Nov. 6. The top candidates from the Oktoberfests will be on the ballot for a runoff election.
Analysts believe party platforms could be a problem for the political nuts. Who are their constituents? Is a vote for Right Wing Nut a vote for or against the Republicans? We asked Ask.Yahoo.com for answers and we quote: “… Word Origins tells us the terms date back to pre-revolutionary France. In 1789, the French National Assembly was created as a parliamentary body to move control of issues, such as taxation, from the king to the citizenry. Inside the chamber where the National Assembly met, members of the Third Estate sat on the left side and members of the First Estate sat on the right. The Third Estate consisted of revolutionaries, while the First Estate were nobles. Thus, the left wing of the room was more liberal, and the right wing was more conservative. In the next few years, the revolutionaries would take over and countless noble heads would roll, but that’s another story”.
Now, add ‘nut’ to the mix and what does that say about a candidate? Or the voter?
These are tough questions. All we can say for sure is vote and live well … and out of the shell™.
