Americans Elect is Stupid.

These clowns.  They’re raking in huge amounts of anonymous money for some sort of fuzzy “third party” that will embrace centrist positions, e.g., moderate conservatism.  Moderate conservatism is all well and good for what it is, but for Christ’s sake I just don’t understand the Washington consensus that moderate conservatives are somehow tragically underrepresented in Washington. A moderate conservative is PRESIDENT.  This just seems like fuzzy nonsense and a way to secure a “voice” for whatever corporations/billionaires are funneling money to Americans Elect.

It makes me so, so angry.

*: This label is debatable.  But I’d define it as someone who wants to make moderate tweaks and fixes to existing institutions in order to address emerging social problems.  You know, like Obama.
