Response to HooptieWagon (Reply #3)

4. Heh, my better half observes:

"That doesn't seem to matter much to Republicans." And then she reminded me of Bush, Quayle, Agnew, and Palin--four totally unqualified and disastrous candidates in the past eleven elections.

Unfortunately, it is also worth observing that all of those candidates except Palin actually won, and then went on to demonstrate exactly how unqualified they were by doing terrible jobs.

Edit: By adding Bush the Special I have included both Presidential candidates and their running mates, although one could argue that Bush's actual responsibilities as President were probably much closer to the others I've named above. The odds are even worse (for America) that the GOP will pick a bad candidate when one considers that only around 13 Republicans (by my likely inaccurate guess, and not including Romney) have run for President or Vice President since 1968. Thirty percent of Republican picks since '68 have been terrible choices, and they only regret one of them.
