Changing the rules to benefit your party when someone you dislike gets voted in?  Come on guys, we're not supposed to be the side that pulls this crap.

DemonEater: Normally this would be an outrage, but the way the Republicans have gone in the last 15 or so years, this sounds like an important step towards ensuring the safety of the citizens.


""Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster," it's BS when Republicans pull this kind of shiat just because they lost an election, Democrats should be better than that.

Bull.  Sometimes you have to fight the enemy the same way they fight you.  It may not be right but republicans started this war, there is no reason not to do everything in our power to stop them.


No, you can't stoop down to their level, you need to fight it legitimately.  I'd be angry if they did this to a Democrat, therefore I'm angry they did this to a Republican.  This is the kind of partisanship that's corrupting political discourse in this country.

Yup.  The voters will be thanking them once the mayor starts spouting off about death panels and birf certifcts.

All of these. It kind of makes it harder to fight stuff like Republican voter supression efforts, public union busting, and changing counting rules after the voting in order to win; if Democrats are pulling stuff like this. It legitemizes Republican shenanigans and delegitemizes complaints made about about them.

Notabunny: Meh. Some cities have a strong mayor system, and in other cities the mayor and city council members are equals. This isn't a thing.


But doing so just to throw a temper tantrum because your guy lost is a thing.

Everyone in here saying this is a legitimate move just because the guy is a Republican are all part of the problem.  Go look yourselves in the mirror and understand that we'd all be better off if YOU didn't vote.  Yes you, the smug fark staring back.  The real issue with U.S. politics is that we think we know everything about what a person believes, how they will act, and how they will vote based on a letter next to their name.  Talk to someone affiliated with a different party once in a while without assuming to know where they stand on every issue and how they arrived at their beliefs.  You might learn something useful instead just sitting around sniffing the farts of everyone in lock-step with your idea of the "correct" side.  Assholes.

I love how you guys think either of the two parties are composed of anything but shady, self-serving politicians.

This. Doing this sort of thing makes the crazy right-wingers think their craziness is justified.

Also it's, you know, morally wrong. It shouldn't be done.

I grew up there, and I'm shocked they didn't have a Republican government this whole time. Career military types, NSA employees, and rich white people with boats don't tend to lean port, er, left.

It is when the only reason you change it is because the "wrong" person won
