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.
