1. Well let me tell ya
The way that I've been treated by the Democratic Party of Mi. trying to throw Hillary Clinton down my throat at all costs I'm actually considering voting for Jack, or any 3rd party candidate that runs against the undemocratic dimocrats in our state. I'm more than a little tired of Granholm, Levin, and Brewer trying to seat delegates for Clinton from our state when the election that was held here disenfranchised any voters that didn't want to vote for the Clintons.

I recently wrote Carl Levin and expressed how disgusted I was with our leadership in this state, and he had the audacity to tell me that not seating the delegates for Hillary would disenfranchise those voters that were in that election. I wrote him back and told him that he (or any of the other undemocratic slime) will not have my vote in the future. I meant it, know where I can get any Kevorkian signs?

2. Today was the first I heard about this

3. it's a third party bid
the GOP may exploit it to peel away votes from the Democrat. Although quirky kooks are more part of the GOP's base.

4. I actually think Jack could pull more Dems than Republicans
He may be a bit of a kook, but he's too liberal for any Republicans I know.

5. So What
Hillary's endorsing McCain, tell me how that's different than my threat of voting for Jack? And yes I'm well aware that it could cut into the dem's chances. I don't even know what that means anymore. Just what is a democrat today? it's sure not the leaders of our state party, nor is it race baiting Hillary (I'll explode the party, if I can't win) Clinton. OK now continue on with your rant about the lesser of two evils.
