I used this analogy with someone this morning when talking about the two candidates for mayor. I don’t like raw bananas or raisons. I can eat a raison if it is in something else like a cake or something, and I can eat banana flavored treats, but I don’t care for either by itself.

I know many voters are upset that their candidate didn’t make the runoff. Oh well, deal with it. You still have an obligation to vote. I felt the same way in the presidential election, but I had to vote for one of them.

So how do you pick a candidate when neither were your top choice?

Make a pros and cons list of both candidates. Include everything you like about them and everything you don’t like. Once you figure that out there are certain things you have to remove from the list; Race (this one is easy), Sex, Age (they are the same age), respective political party (this is a non-partisan race), Religion (they are both Christians) and their stances on national issues like abortion, foreign policy, etc. (this is municipal government folks).

Once you have your list your choice will be easy. So eat a banana or a raison, it won’t kill you and it’s your duty as a voter.

9 Thoughts on “Sioux Falls Mayoral Runoff; A choice between the Banana and the Raisin

  1. Funny that someone who’s always harping on grammatical errors and mis-spelled words in GOP articles and such can’t spell “raisin” correctly.

  2. For the record: I like raw bananas, but we can agree on the raisins

    Who else came here to see your thoughts on Bruce’s lawsuit but got a post about fruits instead?

    There’s lot’s of stuff I could say about the lawsuit, but I’m a witness, so I prefer not to say anything about it at this point. I thought Ellis touched on it pretty good.

    Better not to subject or post about the Danielson lawsuit. I and others may also be called as witness.

    I don’t like bananas but I eat them for the potassium. I like grapes but raisins, not so much. I voted for Loetscher and have no reason to change. What’s most important is the present fruit who’s mayor gets replaced.

  8. No comment came looking for a nut and found produce. Too funny.
