What do you call an election when you've ganked* the competition?

I dunno. Perhaps you'd call it a exercise in self indulgence that wastes massive amounts of money that could be used to, I don't know, upgrade schools. Build better roads? Control the fallout from 2 integrated resorts?

Has a political party ever had a warchest that could pay out 2.6 billion dollars to buy votes?

I think the upcoming election's going to be interesting...well if you like entertainment like watching Mike Tyson beat up Pee Wee Herman, or crush watermelons. (Which to be fair, does hold certain entertainment value but does not a fair fight make...) It's poor form to ask the competition to "bring it" when "it" is a knife and you've got an AK 47 along with some grenades. There's something called dignity and let's leave the opposition to slip quietly into the night so that we can just get on with our lives.

*Gank has several meanings:

- Gang PK. When an overwhelmingly larger, more powerful group or party kills you and or your group. Commonly used as a verb. "A 60 Hordie ganked me." or "Alliance players are ganking newbies."

- Where a single player purposely attacks a player of the opposing faction who is at a substantially lower level.

- When a single player attacks a player of equal or lesser level who is in the middle of a fight with something else and is handicapped by that fight and unable to deal with the ganking enemy.

Wonder why this is a good analogy...Hmmm...

There are no Queensbury rules in politics.

Can this post of yours implying vote buying be considered seditious?
