Talking Politics

I would like to take a moment to discuss the up coming student body election here at the University of Nonsensical Happenings. First of I all, I have never met any of the candidates running for President or Vice President. My opinions are solely based on the articles presented to us in the school paper. There are four different pairs of candidates running for the President and VP positions. Although I haven’t been able to make it to any of the debates, I have been keeping up with the election via the articles printed in TNH. After today’s issue of the paper I have decided whom I will be voting for on April 21 or 22 on Blackboard.

I declare that The New Hampshirite is officially backing the campaign of Chris McGown and Brendan Jones for student body President and Vice President. I really appreciate the honesty and straightforwardness presented by these two gentlemen. McGown and Jones aren’t afraid to hide the fact that neither of them have been a part of a student government before. In fact, only one of the eight candidates, Ryan Deziel, has attended a senate meeting this year.

Here are my other reasons for choosing to support the McGown/Jones ticket. Take a look at the front page of today’s TNH. Look at the hat that VP hopeful Sam Bennet is wearing. I’m sorry, but student body VP is a serious position and he looks more like he is out to get a laugh. Bennet is a member of Theatre Sports, and the last time I checked actors don’t make great politicians. I’m sorry for his Presidential running mate Jacquesline Walker, but you’re out. Next we have the Charlotte Noreng and Richard Peyser tandem. Look it how Mr. Peyser is dressed. He is clearly trying too hard, lay of the ties and suit coats buddy. Also Ms. Noreng is only a sophomore and I believe that the president should have more experience. Mr. Peyser has not only switched schools, but also his major several times. I want someone who can make a decision and stick with it in office, not a “flip-flop.” Ms. Noreng and Mr. Peyser, you're fuckin' out.  The final team is Ryan Deziel and Dustin Schoenbrun. Like Sam Bennet, Ryan Deziel is also a member of Theatre Sports; we need a leader, not a comedian. In the picture Mr. Deziel is wearing a sweater vest (skip to 2:20). He clearly can’t make good decisions.  Now take a look at Chris McGown and Brendan Jones. They aren't trying to impress you with fancy clothes or a huge fake-friendly smile. They just appear to be themselves, trying to make UNH a little less Nonsensical and a little more efficient. 

So those are my opinions on our up coming election. Think about your choices very carefully. I am not telling you who to vote for; I just wanted to let my opinion be heard. I mean I do write a blog. I apologize if I have offended any of the the candidates and I wish them all the best of luck. 

Stay classy, not UMassy.
