News from State College, Pennsylvania, where apparently Penn State students picked the right wrong candidate for Student Body President:
The statement released by Bundy after his election:
If the students are stupid enough to vote for someone so inappropriate and retarded as I am, then they deserve a president who is going to give the worst performance to the best of his ability.
Bundy then promised that his future presidency would be a “fucking shitstorm”. To clarify his use of the term “shitstorm, Bundy commented:
Using my appropriate French, I finalized that with the word shitshow. If people were offended by that, I apologize. We’re gonna say sweet nothings on the record all day long. Cut. Quote. Print. That’s sounds a lot better than no comment. It’s all a game.
More on the man himself here.
Yes, I laughed when I initially heard about all of this. I can’t help but appreciate the candor, especially in today’s political world. Maybe it was intended to be a cruel joke, but Bundy’s victory is indicative of our greater political vulnerabilities–namely, the ignorance of the electorate and the appeal of shallow campaigning that banks on popularity or charisma rather than issues. Whether it was meant in jest, this is a candid look into the jaded mentality of my generation, a lost faith in leadership and a reaffirmation in the frivolous nature of politics. And that’s not funny.
