Broken Campaign Promises: As Old As Time Itself

A friend of mine, Russell, ran for sixth grade class President. He had a slogan that should have guaranteed victory

Hustle your bustle and vote for Russell

He would have won, and he should have won. Except, he ran against his girlfriend at the time. She promised the entire class a free trip to Great America. Without ever explaining how she would 1) pull everyone out of class one day, and 2)come up with the money for the trip, she convinced the entire class. Rather than questioning something that was obviously too good to be true, they followed her like sheep. She won, and of course the free trip never actually materialized.

Think about that story as you watch this video...
