I do not fear a skunk. I simply do not care for its odor.

Yesterday the Draft Bloomberg movement swung into full gear. If I had to wager I'd bet he'll throw his hat in the ring. Only our sane national leaders seem to be immune to the urgings of the little mini-me whispering "run, run" into their ear. Bloomberg doesn't fit that bill.

Yesterday also marked the exclusion of Dennis Kucinich from the Democratic debate in Arizona by MSNBC as the result of a last minute Arizona Supreme Court victory. Only the big three, one of which I support, took the stage. They were all in the wrong for doing so without Kucinich, in my humble opinion. Play fair guys.

Let's keep that in mind as we look ahead to the national debates that will take place after the parties have made their nominees official in their conventions. Judging by the standards set by the media in the Kucinich case I will say unequivocally that independent candidate Michael Bloomberg should not, under any circumstances, be included in those debates.

Of course he probably will be included even though at that point not a single American will have voted for him. The media, not the voters, get to provide our choices in this day and age.

So please join me in preemptive outrage at this series of events. One more straw to put on the back of the crushed, rotting camel carcass that is America.

Democracy Now is replaying the MSNBC debate and allowing Kucinich to respond.

I love the K man. But I'm wavering, should I vote for him just to make a statement or should I vote for Edwards or Obama? Stupid politics.

Yeah, Bloomberg's only role would be to spend a bunch of his own money so we would have a Republican President.



OD -

You could make the statement of leaving the presidential line empty. Otherwise I'd vote your heart. People voting their head when they're complete dumbasses to begin with are the ones that got us into this mess.
