Then it’s also worth looking at the other phony candidates. My personal favourite is Sarah Palin…the highest profile non-candidate for the Republican nomination. She is the candidate (although she has not announced at this writing) for voters who find Dora the Explorer overly intellectual. Dynamic, charismatic, and fun to watch, she is so fundamentally stupid and mean-spirited, she almost makes Tina Fey’s job easy.
Of course the biggest problem with the whole system is the malaise and contempt that the west is developing with respect to the entire democratic process.
