Transcript Dinke's didn't win, but had a splash campaigning The nice spring weather was conducive to the fishing trip planned and executed by the Dinke party. Members of the Dinke party took a 14-foot john boat into the Cullen Family Plaza fountain, fishing for trout and other game fish they had proposed to put into the water. Participants held homemade fishing poles with keys on the ends as they sat in the boat waiting for the bites that never came. "We were pissed because the tuna was never delivered. We chummed the water and everything, but came up empty-handed," Thor Coker, presidential candidate, said. Coker, who was unable to attend due to legal matters, spoke on behalf of his party. The candidates yelled to people walking by, but did nothing to promote their party. "Don't vote Dinke!" the candidate said, "Don't vote!" Mike "Spumoni" Spurlock, run ning for Senator-at-Large Position 4, pulled the boat around the fountain while Dick Vuyk, SSFPAC Position 4 candidate, rode an alligator float around the fountain. He had some problems keeping it in line, and wrestled it into the water. In the boat, passengers read The Daily Cougar Election Guide and talked about politics when they were not joking around. They discussed plans to fill the fountain with trout and other large game fish, including tuna. Amanda Leeson, running for Education Position 1, said she thought sea amoebas would make a good addition. Marcia "Moondog" Kistner suggested including octopus and squid, and opening a sushi bar next to the plaza. We want to stock the fountain with trout to give students something to do between classes," Steve O'Connor, campaign manager for the Dinke party, said. Dale Dye, candidate for Humanities and Fine Arts Position 3, warned participants of the dangers of the boat ride. "Watch out. The water's wet," Dye said. The party received permission for the stunt from the Physical Plant, which had workers supervising the activity. Getting permission from the administration for such an event contrasted with their views of what the Students' Association does. "We think the SA is powerless to make decisions. We're not upset. The administration is paid to do it, and they should," O'Connor said. "The whole election is a joke. There are so many parties that no one can know what they all stand for," Dye said. "Except for us — we're morons," Coker said. "And people know what we stand for: lunacy." -Marjorie Goodman RE Issues IPE 55
