Will Rogers on “How to get rid of a Senator”

They all claim they don’t want to see their Senator. That’s why they elected him, was to get rid of him. If they had wanted him at home they would have kept him at home. SANTA MONICA, Cal., Aug. 31, 1933People in Alaska and across the country have been completely baffled by the outcome of the recent Senate election there. I was too, until I came across this Will Rogers quote. You see, the only thing worse than having this particular Senator in Washington, is having the Senator in Alaska.

It all makes sense now. Alaskans were so anxious to get rid of this Senator that massive numbers of voters actually wrote in the name on the ballots. Unfortunately the name was hard to spell so election officials are having to figure out the “intent” of the voter. What do you do with stuff like “moo,” “mookow,” “cow”, “mickey mouse,” “that tv commercial person,” “goofy,” and various other Disney animals and names.

Even the opposition wants to get rid of ‘em. That’s why they are so serious about legally defining voter “intent.” Well, the intent is clear – Alaskans want to get rid of this Senator one way or another.
