Apparently, Hillary sees invisible people:
Sullivan says it makes him gag- I agree. More than likely I will vote for a crazy-ass libertarian or even Nader in 2008 if Hillary is the Democratic candidate. Of the Democratic candidates, right now there are only two I don’t think I could hold my nose and vote for- Edwards and Hillary. Time may change that, and depending on how awful the GOP candidates are (and there is every reason to believe, based on what we have seen so far, that they will be completely cringe-inducing), I could be persuaded that failing to vote for them is a de facto vote vote for the GOP. Hell- I would vote for Gore, Kucinich, and Nader over Hillary.
As a side note, something has got to be done about the length of our elections. I heard some rumbling that Iowa may move their caucus to December. December. I simply can not take 14 months of this. It is insane, and all of us will be insane by the end of this. We shouldn’t have to put up with drippy, syrupy, idiotic campaign ads until at least April or May of next year. The Great Satan just announced he is stepping down- can’t we take a few months and celebrate and put off this distasteful and tedious exercise in electing someone who will no doubt let us down for just a few more months?
*** Update ***
One last rant- I am sick and tired of these populist commercials showing candidates completely out of their element to demonstrate they are a man of the people. Hillary in a damned field is as dumb as Kerry in a hunting suit or Bush, well, anywhere. Seriously- the people are idiots. We voted for Bush twice. We doubt evolution. More people care about the Super Bowl than the election. All those idiots in the field are concerned about is farm subsidies and the growing ethanol lobby, and I don’t want a candidate who is at one with those people.
