Green political commentator Wang Ben-hu (汪笨湖) has suggested that Kaohsiung County-2 be decided by pua̍h-pue (擲筊) or casting the devination apple halves. The legislative nominees were not pleased with the suggestion.
This is already the third time I've heard this proposal this election season. The first time was when Miaoli Farmer's Association Chief Officer 苗栗縣農會總幹事 Li Yi-ting (李乙廷) and current Nanzhu Township Warden 南竹鎮長 Kang Shi-ru (康世儒) actually used this method to decide which of them would run in Miaoli-1. Li Yi-ting won.
The second time was when Chen Shui-bian, when at a temple with Annette Lu, reportedly suggested at a temple one day that she pua̍h-pue herself to determine if she would run. This is the third time.
Does anyone else find this really odd??? Even somewhat disturbing in a democracy?
