John McCain (D) for President

Hello, I'm John McCain. I want to be the President of the United States of America. I have no idea how economics work.

Anyone with the slightest understanding of economics would be a supporter of Ron Paul. Just ask your boy Arvind.

With all due respect, Paul is an economic crank who blames all of society's problems on the Federal Reserve System. If someone were shot and murdered in downtown Savannah, Paul would somehow find a way to attribute this not to a lack of law enforcement or police protection but, you guessed it: the abandonment the gold standard in 1971! Of course! Makes total sense!

While some of his more traditional libertarian positions are certainly appealing to conservatives, they get cancelled out by a radically pacifist "blame America first" foreign policy that is to the left of even the most liberal Democrats.

Finally, his unwillingness to disavow the anarchists, conspiracy theorists, 9/11 "truthers," Neo-Nazi's, the "don't tase me bro" guy, and countless other nut jobs that contribute to his campaign really doesn't help either. If you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas.

TC, good post by the way.
