Draft Perot!
From my partner, a new theory on how to win in 2004: Ross Perot needs to come out of retirement and run again.

Yes, Ross, I know you are probably very disillusioned with politics; but surely your hatred of the Bush family has not been diminished during Junior's reign! Come on out and take one for the team! Remember, it's not about electing you; it's about siphoning off deficit-hating but not religiously fanatical Republicans so that one more son of a Bush goes down in flames! Can't you hear that giant sucking sound? And it is a GIANT sucking sound!

C ya,

The Plaid Adder

1. why not?!!!
w/ steroid boy running around out here, along w/ the other assorted 134 wannabes, we might as well have Ross in the political mix in '04. Make it memorable!

2. Still just about the oddest thing I've ever seen in politics...
In the spring of 1992 in Greenville, N.C., they had an offical "Draft Perot" petition available for our signature at...the local Dead-Head store! :eyes:

B-)

3. could be a very bad thing
It depends on who wins the primary. If you wind up with a free trade candidate, Perot could suck off more from the democrats side than Bush.

Perot as the spoiler is more or less a myth.

4. McClintock 04!
He seems to be performing the same service in California.

5. Perot is apparently subdued.
The hypocritical Texas munchkin endorsed Bush in 2000. Now that Bush has driven deficits through the roof (Perot's biggest complaint in '92), Perot is silent.

Someone should ask Perot what he thinks of Bush now.
