Q: How could an awful candidate who closely links his platform to one of the least popular presidents in history have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the 2008 presidential election?
A: He's running against the Democratic Party.
I sometimes wish the Democratic Party was my nemesis. I would be happy more often no doubt. My backing Democratic candidates is a lot like my sister's love of the Chicago Cubs. We're ruining the world's balance because we're supporting such inferior products who continually find ways to lose. But what am I going to do? My belief in equality, social justice, and compassion makes it impossible to support the modern Republican Party, and though my beliefs fit more in line with organizations such as the Green Party and even the Peace and Freedom Party, I feel like voting for them would be throwing my vote away with our current two party system. Anyway, over the next few weeks I'll watch the Obama-Clinton train wreck and then be upset with America in November of 2008 when they elect McCain. Good fun.
