See Ya Bye!

Ek. Gone. Buh-bye.

The court order removing her from the ballot doesn't state whether the Republicans can name a replacement, and there seems to be some disagreement over this issue. MN Publius says that there are rumors of a well-known Republican taking the spot of they are allowed to do so, but no names are mentioned. Nothing comes to my mind right now, and if the Republicans had a good candidate to begin with Ek would never have been on the ballot. Perhaps people are talking about frequent candidate Duane Schumacher, who last ran in 2002.

All in all, this has been a pretty hilarious election season for Saint Cloud Republicans. I almost feel sorry for their haplessness. Almost.

Whoever ran these elections for the GOP should be canned. No wonder they were trounced in 04.

Maybe it's just the pessimist in me, but I have a bad feeling that Rick Studer overreached here. If the DFL looks like it's trying to take away people's choices, GOP candidates may get a sympathy vote, especially since the replacement looks like Kay Ek doing a wounded mother routine. I wish they would have just let Sue Ek go on self-destructing, but then, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, and being too-clever-by-half are time-honored traditions with the DFL.

I guess we'll see who's right on Dec. 27.
