Hats off to Roger Kaplan for advancing the Pop for President Movement, of which I was unaware until this morning, but of which I heartily approve, and will cancel all other entertainment to promote. What an improvement in competence and character Gregg Popovich would be over the hair-balls the two “major” parties are likely to cough up this year.
The Democrats will almost certainly offer up a left-wing crazy of no accomplishment who is a serial liar, mean as a snake, possessor of a heart so hard a coyote wouldn’t eat it, and an enabler of a sexual predator. The leading Republican is an egomaniacal, more-than-slightly bent wheeler-dealer who combines the worst characteristics of P.T. Barnum, Benito Mussolini, and Don Rickles on his un-funniest day. This would definitely be Pop’s year. I do so hope he gets in, thereby giving sentient Americanos a choice they can live with this year.
