Election- “Rubbing salt in the wound / See you again” edition

Ahn Chulsu who pulled out of the race against Moon Jaein to represent the lefties earlier due to Moon’s refusing to budge -despite the numbers showing a sure victory for Ahn if he ran in the Presidential election – is seen here on the day of the election, headed for the U.S.

He says he will take a little time off and think about his next moves(political). Although there is a speculation that Minju, in their defeat, might seek him to take charge and become the centre in the re-grouping of what’s left over, this is unlikely because he is said to have repeated that “he should have created his own party” and would prefer to draw on a fresh new sheet than fix the drawing already made.

He should come back, and maybe severe all ties with the losers and the ugly ambition party and make his own party. I thought it might be possible that the lefties would be reasonable and see why they are not liked by the people who shun extreme, but this has shown to be 무리/difficult. Then we can call it Progressives, true to the meaning of the word, completely wrongly attributed to Minju at the moment.

At least, there is some good news for the Marmots Hole readers – you might have to make do with the “toilet” standard of political coverage from now on because the above-toilet level writer just told us – at nobody’s request – completely unlike what we get vice versa – he was going to stop doing any further political coverage after the election :)

    If Ahn really thinks his mistake was that “he should have created his own party,” then I’ll add “demented” to the list of personality traits in the psych profile section of his dossier.

    But as for TK giving up political blogging, yeah, right. Sorry, but I recognize a fellow political wonk when I see it, and politics clearly runs through the man’s DNA.

    Besides, if I know TK, there is NO WAY he’s gonna stay silent while MH’s wingnuts go to town week after week.

    There is no over/under on this bet, BTW. This is a sure thing.

    “despite the numbers showing a sure victory for Ahn if he ran in the Presidential election”
    What numbers? He was sure to lose a three way contest, and while he stood a better chance against Park than Moon did, he was behind Moon in polling for the unified opposition candidate. Pulling out was his best option politically – it preserved his image as an outsider and positioned him as the front-runner in 2017 regardless of who wins.

    I changed it from bad news to good news. I meant to write “good” but I wrote “bad”, I don’t know why.

  • yuna_at_marmotshole

    Yes, but nobody could deny (not even DLB or theKorean) that he would have won if he ran against Park and we all know that.
    Park won because people who supported Ahn didn’t vote. People who support Moon would have voted for Ahn.
