Seems Like Only Yesterday it was 4 Years Ago

Let the madness begin. Newt Gringrich is running for President. Next fall. With this announcement, we begin the 18 month campaign cycle of entertainment in which we’ll get debates, interview spoofs, and best of all, ad campaigns.

At least we’re not back in 1964, where the campaign ads were downright scary. This one is designed to scare us into electing Johnson.

Who should win

I just came back from the polls, voting for a governor that will hopefully be the lesser of two evils. What California needs is really a breath of fresh air, and in that light, I officially invite Jimmy McMillan to move to California, establish residency, and run for some public office in 2012.

Please.

Not sure what the best part of this picture is… Stephen Colbert’s ridiculous pants, or the fact that there’s actually a Sousaphone as a part of the stage band.

…thanks to this guy who, in the midst of a beautifully pitched 1-0 Dodger win over the Cards last night, decided to fill out an entire stack of the All-Star ballots, often punching through 5 or 6 at a time.

If not his methods, at minimum I admire both this guy’s intent and his efficiency, however, I’ve got a feeling he’s simply trying to single-handedly vote Andre Ethier into the starting line-up, which currently looks plausible even without the extra effort on the part of superfans.

It even appears that there was more turnout for All-Star voting yesterday than regular voting in California’s primaries.
