Oh, Yeah. He'd Be Good

Already there's talk of Florida's Governor Jeb Bush running for President in 2008. His qualifications? No real word on that.

But the really big question to be answered is: just how stupid do the Republicans think the voters are? Bush ("No New Taxes") Senior was a huge disaster (although we must admit to having held our nose while voting for him. Junior is no better, and in some ways maybe even worse (the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, you know). But suddenly, we're supposed to believe that Li'l Jeb is The Great White Hope? Not bloody likely.

Of course, it's all academic anyway. Everyone already knows who's going to be in the Oval Office in 2009. So anyone the GOP nominates will just be another sacrificial lamb.

The only chance this country has is for all the minor parties to make nice with each other and make common cause against the "bi-factional ruling party". This will call for a some compromise, but the result will be worth it. All they have to do is nominate someone (Ron Paul?) who can electrify the electorate. The way things are going, though, there's not much chance of that.

But MDS, If we don't vote for the RIGHT freaking Kakostocrat, the WRONG freaking Kakostocrat might get in!
When the available candidates both come from the same Lucky Sperm Club pool, is that really a choice?
And speaking of choice (since you brought it up) why do we have 50 of them for Miss America, but only two piss poor ones for President?

Vox nailed it with his "bi-factional ruling party" bit. When you own both horses in a two-horse race, the outcome doesn't really matter, does it?

The primaries are where it happens. Every idiot and his Dutch uncle wants to be POTUS. In typical fashion, -- just like in the so-called "free" marketplace, it isn't the best product (*ahem* Beta) that wins out, but the one with the most aggressive marketing (VHS).

Someone else came up with a pretty good strategy: register with one of the two sides, then vote against all incumbents in the primary.
