It is often said (by right-thinking people, that is) that the desire to hold elected office should be the chief disqualification for holding elected office. With the advent of King County's new Accu-Vote ballot, write-in voting has never been easier. As voting in a representative democracy is largely an exercise in self-expression, write-in votes tend to be more aesthetic than pragmatic, ranging from Kantian paragons to Kafkaesque parodies. Even with ostensibly serious write-in campaigns, hope of efficacy is almost always quixotic. This campaign is no different.
Dave Sherbrooke is a resident of Bellevue, Washington, and is therefore (probably) eligible to hold elected office in the following constituencies:
"Hello! Are you looking for the house for sale? You want the place two doors down...what? Oh no, it's you... And him, too? I thought you'd gone. Look, what do you want with me? You still owe me a paper, you know. Okay, you don't have to write it, just state your business. What are you doing with that camera? No, I can't say that I miss you exactly; you two aren't the only smart-alecks to darken my door in fifteen years, you know. Have either of you got a real job yet? Didn't think so. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to finish this hedge, so leave before I call the cops. Come back when you've managed to make a difference in the world."
