Election Monologues

Election (Tracy Flick)

Poet Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “I cannot make my days longer, so I strive to make them better.” With this election, we here at Carver also have an opportunity to make our high school days better. During this campaign I have had the opportunity to speak to many of you about your concerns. I spoke with freshman Eliza Ramirez, who told me how alienated she feels from her own homeroom. I spoke with sophomore Reggie Banks who said his mother works in the cafeteria and can’t afford to buy him enough spiral notebooks for his classes. I won’t bore you with long winded promises about all the new and innovative things I will definitely achieve during the year in which it will be my honor and privilege to represent each and every one of you, but I can say that my years of experience on the student council have taught me the three most important attributes the president needs to possess; commitment, qualifications, and experience. I’ll add one more, caring. I care about Carver and I care about each and every one of you and together we can all make a difference. One of the things I would like to establish is a regular open forum where any student can come and voice their concern about issues we face here at Carver. I and the rest of the student council would then interface with the faculty and staff, so a continuous dialogue would exist. When you cast your vote for Tracy Flick next week, you won’t just be voting for me. You’ll be voting for yourself and for every other student. Our days won’t be any longer, but they can sure be better.

Election

PAUL: Dear God, thank You for all your blessings. You have given me so many things, like good health, nice parents, a nice truck, and what I”ve been told is a large penis, and I”m very grateful. But I sure am worried about Tammy. In my heart I still can”t believe she tore down my posters, but sometimes she does get so weird and angry. Please help her be a happier person, because she”s so smart and sensitive, and I love her. Also, I”m nervous about the election tomorrow, and I guess I want to win and all, but I know that”s totally up to You. You”ll decide who the best person is, and I”ll accept it. And forgive my sins, whatever they may be. Amen.More Monologues from “Election”

TRACY: Dear Lord Jesus, I do not often speak with You and ask for things, but now I really must insist that You help me win the election tomorrow, because I deserve it and Paul Metzier doesn”t, as You well know. l realize that it was Your divine hand that disqualified Tammy, and now I”m asking that You go that one last mile and make sure to put me in office where I belong, so that I may carry out Your will on Earth as it is in Heaven. If elected I promise that I will pray more often. Okay? Amen.More Monologues from “Election”

TRACY: Wait – are you accusing me? You”re not serious. (indignant) I can”t… Mr. McAllister, we have worked together on SGA for three solid years and… I mean, I can”t believe it. I”m… I”m shocked!Mr. M., I am running on my qualifications. I would never need to resort to, you know, to vandalism like a, you know… Plus, my own best banner was torn down. Did I do that too?As you know, with all my responsibilities I often come in on the weekend and have permission to do so. But I left very early, around 6:30. I just know they were there when I left. I”m giving you helpful information is all. You know, instead of wasting time interrogating me, we should be out there trying to find out who did this.It could have been anybody. There are a lot of, you know, subversive elements around Millard. You know, like Rick Thieson and Kevin Speck and those burn-outs. Or Doug Schenken – what about him? Or what about Tammy Metzier? Her whole thing is being anti-this and anti-that.More Monologues from “Election”
