The Concept of the Pity Vote

“McKenzie Zales. Shay Van Buren. Handjob girl. You’re clearly not familiar with the concept of the pity vote, are you?”
“Put yourself in the place of an average Overland Park student. Are you going to vote for a cheerleader? Maybe. An Overland Park socialite? Possibly?”
“But oh wait, there’s a girl with no arms? I should vote for her or I will most assuredly burn in the fiery fires of hellfire for all eternity. In fact, I’ll vote for her twice just so she never experiences heartbreak or disappointment in her life. After all, she does have no arms.”
“Ba da bap, 1-2-8, PROM QUEEN.”
