Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Student Council Elections, Jihadi-Style

It would seem that the student body at Hebron University is in the process of its annual election. Judging by the looks of things, the students seem to be in the process of choosing between:

If you want to see the rest of the deeply-educational election, feel free to peruse the wire archives over yonder. I think it's worth pointing out here that the base word for Hebron is—drumroll, please:

From the Hebrew word "friend."

Ain't it grand to see Western progress unravel bit by bit with each passing year?

I'll be on the edge of my seat waiting to see which bunch of thugs wins this one.

Update: Soccer Dad points out via e-mail that this type of thing has been going on for quite a while. It's still quite a sight to behold, though.
