The candidates have dwindled down to a not-so-precious few. I've been avoiding writing about politics because I see so much other writing about it, but I keep thinking that I should get into the ring on one side or the other.
But should I endorse a poor former Secretary of State and senator whose only value seems to be "What's in it for me?"
Should I endorse a present-day senator who's calling for revolution?
Or should I endorse a bullying business tycoon who doesn't seem to have learned debating style at a level about playground taunts?
My endorsement, dear readers, is None of the above.
None of the above has a coherent plan for what to do when he becomes president.
None of the above admits that plans will need to change, and that the hardest sentence to pronounce in English is "I don't know."
None of the above can hold a news conference without either screaming, belittling the questioners, or sounding dangerously hoarse.
None of the above is the voice of reason.
None of the above has been elected to executive office (such as a governorship).
Yes, None of the above is "boring." But while that doesn't seem great in a candidate, it's marvelous in a president... a calm, respected, and, well, Serious president.
(Candidate None of the above, where are you?)
