The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Ron Paul
Okay everyone, I will accede to your request and add Ron Paul to the rankings. The unfortunate fact about American politics is that people with thoughtful, nuanced opinions on the state of America's position in the world don't have a forum to lay them out comprehensively. So Ron Paul is given 90 seconds in a debate and comes off as a whacko, and Giuliani gets a home-run soundbite that the base eats up (despite the fact that Paul's point was totally legitimate).

So I'll add Ron Paul to the odds with a 36:1 position, while wishing we had a process in which someone like him could be much much higher.

Our political system sucks.

    WOW! 36:1 is not that bad, I look at it like this, Savara won the 2002 Belmont Stakes at 70:1, so anything is possible.
