    Voters pick dead man for mayor over the incumbent

    Voters in Tracy City, Tenn., have overwhelmingly elected a dead man as mayor, ousting the incumbent, the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports.

    Carl Robin Geary Sr. died of a heart attack March 10, but still beat incumbent Barbara Brock 268 to 85 on Tuesday, the newspaper reports.


    "I knew he was deceased. I know that sounds stupid, but we wanted someone other than her," Chris Rogers, owner of Lunch Box restaurant, tells the paper. "If he were to run again next week I'd vote for him again."
    I have only one question - Is he going to run for president? If so, he has my vote.

    At least he won't mess anything up further. I mean........rest in peace.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The new mayor must have one hell of a publicist!

    Re: Voters pick dead man for mayor over the incumbent

    This so reminds me of Lewis Blacks rant about electing a dead president. Starts at about 4:00 in that clip.

    It's Time For a Dead President
    ...we honor leaders for what they achieve, but we often prefer to close our eyes to the way they achieve it...

    In the real world, politics is compromise and democracy is politics. Anyone who would be a statesman has to be a successful politician first. Also, a leader has to deal with people and nations as they are, not as they should be. As a result, the qualities required for leadership are not necessary those that we would want our children to emulate - unless we wanted them to be leaders.
