Don't worry about the government


Sometimes you just have to wonder what's going on in the minds of politicians. Watching the Republican debate last night, you saw four white guys in suits all trying to out right-wing the other as they kowtowed to a room full of neanderthal nutjobs from Arizona. Oh, and Gov. Rick Perry was there, too, sitting right next to Callista Gingrich's hairdo!

Anyway, we have our own problems right here on the Forty Acres. If you've been reading the Texan this week here online or in print (as I'm sure you have), not one, but two pairs of candidates for the top posts in Student Government have been disqualified for campaign violations. You can see the stories here and here.

What's up with these people. Do they not know the rules or do they just decide not to play by them? I guess it's a little of both. Frankly, it's embarrassing.

But we aren't the only ones with election woes. Check out the problems their having at the University of Florida here. Go Gators!
