Only, they can't blame John McCain.
The first BYUSA election we can remember was significant because one of the guys looked like Robert Downey Jr. When it's a show election for a show office, might as well have a face primed for showtime.
After that, we remember another BYUSA President who was the funny fat guy. Everybody loves that guy.
This year's election theme seems to be brother/sister teams. Check out the candidates and their platforms here:
- Steele & Amanda Kizerian (bro & sis)
- Paul Hoybjerg & Brooke Stevens
- Chayse Myers & McKell Myers
- Brandon Roman & Chad Johnson
- Adam Ruri & Chance Basinger
As it is, Steele and Amanda misspell "initiaition" [sic] and Paul and Brooke's flash slideshow resulted in this really weird transgender morphing action. Initiation? Come on, guys. And Paul, buddy, you're scaring the kids.
Alright, we're equal opportunity grammar/spelling police: McKell Myers was "Chairmen [sic] of the Teenage Republican Club for Comal County." Brandon Roman is an "extravert" and a political science major. Meanwhile, Adam Ruri was a "male vocalist in a band." (emphasis added) Yup. We sort through the inanities of this campaign so you don't have to.

We have modest goals for this election: an election-decided winner. This would be a departure from the winner-by-default outcome of the last few years.
