Who not vote for

By Libby

I don't know about you but figuring out who to support in 08 is rather daunting. It's not like I'm horrified about the Democratic side, but neither am I wholeheartedly enthused by any of the candidates. Which isn't to say Dodd hasn't impressed the hell of me this week, but I'm so jaded right now, I'm almost afraid to believe he's for real and he's a long shot anyway.

Much simpler is figuring out who not to support and Kevin Drum gets the quote of the day on this one.

Choosing the best presidential candidate among the 2008 contenders is a tough job. Picking the worst is easy. Rudy Giuliani is the guy you'd get if you put George Bush and Dick Cheney into a wine press and squeezed out their pure combined essence: unbounded arrogance and self-righteousness, a chip on his shoulder the size of a redwood, a studied contempt for anybody's opinion but his own, a vindictive streak a mile wide, and a devotion to secrecy and executive power unmatched in presidential history. He is a disaster waiting to happen.

Really. All of the GOP contenders would be horrible presidents but Rudy is truly moral and political corruption personified. He embodies every failing of George Bush times ten. If Bush and Cheney don't manage to launch Armangeddon before they leave office, then you can be sure it wouldn't take Rudy two months in his arrogance, to pull the trigger.

Hi Libby,
I'm not horrified by any of the candidates. What horrifies me is the fact that it really doesn't matter one way or the other. Corporate america is running the show as they have for decades. All of the serious candidates are in their pocket. The only difference is the Democrats deny it and keep that relationship hidden. The Repubs just show it right out in the open.
If someone were to be elected that actually worked against the ultra wealthy, ultra greedy corporate rulers of America, they would simply be eliminated. I have no faith in either party or the current two party system for that matter. It's all a sham to try to make us THINK we still have a choice and that that choice might make a difference. It won't and the recent bending over in public of the Dems is evidence of that.
With these two parties it is just a matter of this. The dems will tell you they love you then fuck you in your sleep. The repubs will tell you they're going to fuck you and then do it out in the open when your awake. Either way you get fucked. Sorry but welcome to the new America.

Brian - that of course is the truly depressing aspect of this whole farce. That's why I don't get excited about elections anymore.

Lester, you're allowed to say Ron Paul's name here and tout him all you want. This is not Redstate.
