The circus has come to town

And by circus, I mean the campaign period for local officials. Parts of the metropolis were overrun by traffic jams today, thanks to campaign sorties, convoys, and elaborate stage setups where candidates will hold court and convince people, with the help of lights, bright music, a celebrity or two or three, laughs, and likely a song or dance number, why they should be elected. Such events are always amusing displays of how full candidates are of themselves, saying, “You can see we’ve got lots of supporters given our event’s turnout,” conveniently forgetting the fact that people will always come out of the woodwork to catch a glimpse of celebrities or well-known personalities, not necessarily because they support whoever’s running.
