funny as in peculiar, ironic, not comical...
Rich, newly an Independent for this election, has criticized a Democrat for serving on Ken's re-election committee. He says he's tired of party politics, and then, perhaps from the other side of his mouth, engages in exactly that.
It would be funny if this election weren't so important. It's about West Vincent's future. The fact that Ken attracts support from people of different politics from across the township seems to offend Rich. To me, it’s another Truth for West Vincent.
Ken is a good man, who deserves our support, because he doesn’t care about our politics when he does his job—he just cares that he’s doing the best he can for West Vincent. And that’s the Truth.
