Dear fellow tax hikers, we have finally calmed down enough to start reviewing the latest crushing defeat that our movement has suffered. After our 2011 Tax Hiker of the Year Rick Bryan blew a big lead earlier this year to lose the Republican nomination to our enemy Jonathan Dever, we thought for sure we had a winner in young Micah Kamrass.
We can't believe we're sitting here after the election bemoaning another big loss. We were assured by our expert sources that the race was over and Kamrass was headed to a big victory. But we didn't just lose, we got destroyed.
Kamrass was immensely qualified for this position. At 25 years old, he's spent months working for Tim Burke performing important tasks like fetching coffee and shining Boss Burke's shoes. And, Kamrass has one qualification that few will ever have - he was a student government president in college!
We couldn't even win Blue Ash. Shouldn't the endorsements of ancient Wheezer Reuszer and Christine Weber have at least delivered Blue Ash? Or did the miniature horse that Blue Ash Council keeps attacking gallop out of town with hundreds of our votes?
Now we want to hear your opinions. Why did our boy Kamrass get crushed in a race he was favored to win? How did Dever win both a primary election he had no chance of winning and a general election he couldn't possibly win? And what happened in Blue Ash? Tell us your thoughts.
