alternative to Hill and Bill"
Just holding the place, holding
holding the names, for a "dream ticket."
"HOLD THAT VISION!"
*A NOTE ON INTELLIGENCE: Intelligence without curiosity is not intelligence.
I happen to think The Current Occupant is smart in many ways--
probably smarter than average -- but his admitted lack
of curiosity ("My staff presents me with the the information
and the alternatives and I'm The Decider") has caused
disaster on enough fronts to last us for decades!
that these are not the sort of feel-good, focus-group-selected
positions designed to be popular -- in fact, they are
certain to provoke opposition -- but they are rather
matters of personal conviction and core belief.
"HOW ABOUT HILLARY?"
We've already got a president who will never admit
a mistake, and I couldn't stand another one. Hillary's excuse that she'd not
have voted to let GWB go to war "if she'd had the correct information" is lame.
She should have known he was lying and what he was up to, as millions did.
If her BS detector is that weak, she shouldn't be President.
And a bit of a pimp on ethanol and God knows what else.
"HOW ABOUT YOUR GOVERNOR,
Would probably do a good job; sharp guy. (See note below)

AND SINCE I'M BEING
might as well share this recent piece which has gotten some nice exposure:
THANK YOU FOR WAKING
Apart from the issue of
whether a soul
Ever peruses this sweet doggerole
Or whether it bugs 'em or cheers 'em at best
It's something I must now get off of my chest.
Back in the winter of 2003
A big bunch of cynics and lefties like me
Had the good sense, upon brief self-reflection,
To turn on their sensors for b.s. detection
And see that the claims
of the WMDs,
The claims of a cakewalk that would be a breeze,
Of a war to stop terror right there in its tracks,
Was a vinegar enema given by quacks.
I watched for three years
as the chaos ensued,
While soldiers in caskets all red, white and blue'd
Returned, while excuses for why we were there
Were floated and bloated and vanished in air,
So now that you Bushies
are finally waking
To the reaming you've gotten, the lying, the faking,
Think for a moment of the buckets of tears
Of we who have watched this for FOUR FRIGGIN' YEARS!!

CHRISTMAS!" "JESUS WANTED CLEAN
Great rant by Stacy Taylor on Air America Radio about the "War on Christmas",
political piety, religious spin and "compassion without religion." LISTEN (8 min.)
See articles referenced at ARSUSA.net - Alliance of Religious Scams
(in real life, didn't actually quite win election)
FINAL NOTE: Please don't write to tell me about candidates I may not have included, etc.
Surely there are some great ones out there I don't know about.
I'm not trying to be a kingmaker here, and no one really cares about my opinion.
I'm just trying to throw out a couple "tickets" I personally think would be great.
