Highly Electable

June 2, 2008

Drawings, Lloyd

Well, it turns out that I’m highly electable. Not only was I recently elected to be a Delegate to the Seward County Republican Convention. Note: If there are fewer than 2 people per precinct who register to be candidates their names do not actually appear on the ballot and they are just sort of “elected”.

I also happy to inform you that I have recently (yesterday evening) been elected as one of the four Seward County Delegates to the Nebraska State Republican Convention. NOTE: if there are fewer than 4 delegates elected to serve at the county convention then it’s pretty much a done deal that they will all get to go (there were only 3 of us).

There were only about two dozen people at the county convention including John Gale, our secretary of state, and Pete Ricketts who ran against Ben Nelson for Senate in 2006 but lost. After my “election” I was feeling bold so I nominated Mark Kolterman for chairman of the Seward County Republican Committee. He won. Then the jerk turned around and nominated me for secretary and I won. NOTE: there was not a lot of interest in the position (I was the only person nominated).

I’d like to think I was nominated because I expressed myself so eloquently when they asked all of the delegates to say something about their delegatality, but I’m pretty sure they just thought they could get the new guy to do it.

Lauren wants to contribute to her country, too, so she drew this in lieu of actually voting or anything.

In Lloyd we trust?

    If you ever make it to a high political office, appoint me to some position that doesn’t do anything, but gets paid lots of money. (I’ve just described most government jobs, haven’t I?)

    By the way, “delegatality” is not yet showing up on google. If it does, this post will be the only hit.

    Congratulations Lloyd!

    I think one of your 1st suggestions in office should be to start the Lloyd quarter. Each state could have a different Lloyd … Lloyd with long hair, Lloyd with short hair, Lloyd with “underwear” hair …

    Does that mean you get to walk in the Fourth of July Parade, wave at people and hand stuff out? Because if it does, it totally should have been me that was elected to something. Dnag.


    • Kristi Said on:

      Perhaps we’ll have lots of Lloyd “wanna-be”s in the parade. Then we can count them… “That’s one, one Lloyd wanna-be, ha-ha-ha.” Of course, they’d have to be able to speak Lloyd-ese.

    If you’re casting a mold for his quarter based on the sketch, I think you need to include the front tooth gap for authenticity.
