His latest? Touting a "third way" party/candidacy in 2012? Hey, My Head is Flat? I thought neoliberalism WAS "the third way.
Thomas J. gives us the lowdown:
Thanks to a quiet political start-up that is now ready to show its hand, a viable, centrist, third presidential ticket, elected by an Internet convention, is going to emerge in 2012. I know it sounds gimmicky — an Internet convention — but an impressive group of frustrated Democrats, Republicans and independents, called Americans Elect, is really serious, and they have thought out this process well. In a few days, Americans Elect will formally submit the 1.6 million signatures it has gathered to get on the presidential ballot in California as part of its unfolding national effort to get on the ballots of all 50 states for 2012.Well, first, new parties poll higher without a candidate, with a blank slate, than they do with an actual person.
Second, as those of us outside the duopoly know, for various reasons of political structure, mindless loyalty and slothful indulgence, America continues to gravitate to a third-party system.
Third, getting back to Point 1: If you're going to be so bold, Teapot Tommy, why don't you tell us if Americans Elect has tried to tap any candidates yet? If so, whom? If not, whom are your "third way squared" favorites?
That said, I urge my left-liberal friends to go to Americans Elect and spam it.
