What. A. Nightmare.

No, really, I can't sleep:

“She and John McCain are very close,” [former President Bill Clinton] said. “They always laugh that if they wound up being the nominees of their party, it would be the most civilized election in American history and they’re afraid they’d put the voters to sleep because they like and respect each other.”

Some of us like to say that Hillary was one hundred percent correct when she spoke of a "vast right-wing conspiracy".

She simply neglected to mention that she and Bill were part of it!

Well, I fail to see how it would be more civilized than the classic showdown between James Garfield and Winfield Scott Hancock over the tarriff back in 1880 (or when Washington and James Monroe swept to victory twice each). Oddly enough 1880 also had the highest share of eligible citizens vote even though it was a clean contest over issues (since trade was the way the government was funded) and not personalities. How about that.

Why don't the McCain haters just play up the way he reacted to Bush's Supreme Court picks?

Nah, they'd kick the crap out of each other.

Wow, nominating a candidate that appeals more to cross-over voters than partisan fanatics. What a nightmare!

Joe, the problem Republicans have with McCain is they'd like a Republican to be the nominee.

Even if McCain is the best available Democrat, it just doesn't feel right.

Don't worry. We'll be able to choose Bloomberg too.
