“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded—here and there, now and then—are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck."”     Robert A.

Lieutenant Dan For President!

by Brad Warbiany

Hey, at least the Republicans are looking outside the box. But as Radley Balko notes, a commitment to ideas might be a little bit more important than papering over your problems with a fresh new face:

Nicolle Wallace, a top adviser to George W. Bush and John McCain’s presidential campaign, is adding a few names to the list of Republicans who might lead the GOP out of the wilderness.

Top among them? Actor Gary Sinise.

Wallace, writing on The Daily Beast, said she first heard the idea from a fellow Republican.

“The natural strengths that an actor brings to politics would come in handy to anyone going up against Obama in 2012,” she wrote. “We will need an effective communicator who can stand toe to toe with Obama’s eloquence.”

Was Wallace the same advisor that suggested Sarah “Wink, Wink!” Palin as a VP choice?

In all fairness, though, Sinise did get those Apollo 13 astronauts home safely. Credit where credit is due and all that…

At least it’s not Ricky Schroeder.

  1. I think the next crop of candidates should be entirely animated. Max Headroom for President!

  2. I actually think Max Headroom would be an apt choice for president. At least then we would officially have a figurehead, assuming Edison Carter is out there getting the job done, as well.

  4. At least Lt. Dan would get more votes than Bob Barr or Ron Paul.

    And call me crazy, but I have this sneaking gut feeling that our country would be in a little better shape right now if we DID have Fred Thompson in the White House in lieu of its current occupant.
