Listen, if there is one kind of experience that our politicians lack today that is sorely needed in government, it’s the knowledge of which cat food is tastiest and how to make a bindle.

That’s right! In the 2010 election a new rambling and paranoid political force has emerged: no, not the Tea Party, hobos! The New York Times is reporting that Arizona Republicans, the special group that they are, have been recruiting “street people” to run on for the Green Party to “siphon some support from the Democrats”.

How thoughtless and cruel of the Arizona GOP exploit the weaknesses of those on the lowest rung of our society for political gain, right? While ethically true, as I see it this tactic has two big electoral flaws. First, the only liberals who vote for the Green Party are drugged out college kids anyway, so a strategically timed Battlestar Galatica marathon would devastate their Get Out The Vote efforts.

Second, in a state with the nation’s 2nd highest foreclosure rate and public opinion polls which show overwhelming support for that awful immigration law, a candidate who lives on the streets and is also a certified lunatic will siphon away thousands votes from the GOP too.

See, this is why if you’re gonna run a phony candidate, you should aways run a dead guy. Shoot John Ashcroft lost an election to a corpse in 2000!
