Setting Expectations

We've cleared out some of the stranger, moldy items in the Conservative Presidential Candidate refrigerator, but what remains isn't precisely appetizing either. There are a few new and untested items (Cain) but the vast majority are slight variations on unflavored gelatin and nobody can get very excited about them. There has been much moaning and wailing about the field of realistically possible and declared candidates, and I agree --nothing to get excited about.

Fortunately, we don't have to. On the presidential level I will definitely be voting for Not Obama, so that's easy. There's a lot of repair work to be done and defensive fortifications to throw up to make sure the disaster of the current administration is a) fixed and b) never happens again. Snarkatron wishes to remind all enraged voters that we will be voting on LOTS of federal positions other than president, and for those positions there are candidates who are *not* lumps of unflavored gelatin.

These people will form the foundation that the lump of unflavored gelatin, elected to the presidency, will have to work with to get anything done. So, THESE are the people we need to fight for.  They will also form the base for a future presidential election where we can finally vote FOR someone, instead of against.

And if that doesn't work, we'll break out the pitchforks and torches.
