The Poll We Need

The pundits are awash in polls asking people which of 15 or so Republicans they want to see on the ballot, but so far nothing like this has appeared on the Dem side. Possibly for good reason. Questioning the president's legitimacy, up to now, ran you the risk of a pair of cement overshoes and a bath in the Chicago river. With Rhambo out of town, however, the natives are getting restless. The pundits at Salon are suggesting that The Won may not be all be was cracked up to be.

So where's the internet poll of which Democrat you favor in the upcoming elections?
1. Barry O
2. Hillary C
3. Cynthia Mckinney
4. Ralph Nader
5. Nancy Pelosi
6. Harry Reid
7. John Kerry
8. Jerry Brown*
9. Jerry Garcia**

Toss in 4 or 5 more and voila, a primary poll that no one on the left dared ask for.

* To his credit, Mr. Brown is the only one of the lot with any actual executive experience.
** Yes, I know he's dead, but the Dems have done well with dead candidates in the past, so why not.

I actually like Fred Grandy -- you know, "Gopher" from the Love Boat.

Of course, Mister Grandy did get elected to four terms as US Congressman from Iowa, and then served as Governor of Iowa.

That, or maybe the father of the line "What in the Wide World of Sports is a-going on here?", Mel Brooks.

Yes, vote for Jerry Garcia. The way it is explained to me is you vote for him, he wins, and you trust to the Dems to appoint a replacement true to his principles for which you voted (Yes, that last part sounds flaky to me, too)

Therein lies the elements of a gut-bustingly funny post which, alas, I don't feel I could do justice to.

Imagine Jerry Garcia getting the nod, and the DNC providing Charles Manson as his replacement. And why not? The man, unlike a lot of other pols, hasn't been convicted of anything in the last 20 years or so.
