Whoever you vote for…

It’s been a long time since I voted in an election, but I still follow all of the weird twists and creepy turns of the process.

I’ve been reading A Game of Thrones recently, and have often thought for whatever treacherous kingly fantasy George Martin writes next, he could learn a lot by watching how the Democrats and republicans choose their leaders. (In Canada, the dreary robo-calls scandal continues to dominate the body politic).  

The news of Vladimir Putin’s recent election victory in Russia reminded me of this joke.

After the 2000 election in the US, the Americans sought help from the chairman of the Russian Central Electoral Commission Aleksandr Veshnyakov when they could not determine a winner between US presidential candidates Bush and Gore. After conducting a thorough study, Veshnyakov declared Putin the winner.
