When is an Internet-based, third party organizing effort a Very Serious Idea?
When David "Wild Man" Broder f*cking well tells you it is. That's when. You lowly moron.
Until plans for this meeting were disclosed, the most concrete public move toward any kind of independent candidacy was by Unity08, a group planning an online nominating convention to pick either an independent candidate or a ticket combining a Republican and a Democrat. The sponsors, an eclectic mix of consultants who have worked for candidates including Jimmy Carter (D) and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), have not aligned with a specific prospect.
Now, some people with high-level political and governmental credentials are moving to put muscle behind the effort.
What meeting, you ask? Why, the Big Bipartisan Serious Person's Kumbaya Love-In for America, of course.
