The Revolution Will Be Co-Opted

Yeah, OK, so nobody every really seriously thought much would come of the Ron Paul "revolution," which has turned out to be more like the Whiskey Rebellion than the War of Independence. Still, it's a little surprising to see a group of Paul supporters trying to rally the faithful behind John McCain for the fall. Because, you know, if there's one thing that galvanized the Ron Paul movement, it was the promise of an infinite US military deployment in the Middle East!

Further proving the fact that presidential elections are no longer about choosing the best person for the job, but rather choosing the lesser of two evils. Weather McCain fits that bill is arguable.

Maybe we should put them on American Idol where more people have voted than for any President in all of U.S. History.

Yeah but all the 12 year old girls would vote (do some mad textin') for some dreadlocked girly man instead of the more qualified singers anyway. lol
