Why is it that those few candidates with genuine ability, vision, and a moral conscience never make it off the bench when it comes to the big contest? This election provides some fine examples, including Ron Paul, Dennis Kucinich, Bill Richardson, Mike Huckabee, and even Tom Tancredo (perhaps a one-trick pony, but a one-trick pony with ethics). The only one who was actually judged somewhat fairly by the electorate and found wanting was Mike Huckabee. Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, intellectual giants of the campaign who could not be bought, were held to constant ridicule and scorn by their own parties and the representatives of a status quo who fear everything they represent. When folks like Bush and McCain dive into the gutter to talk trash and launch unfair attacks upon their opponents, their supporters think it's clever and cute. Later they shrug it off as politics as usual.
It couldn't possibly be that we get the very assholes we wholeheartedly deserve, could it?
