Oh, happy day! Just when thought the 2000 US Presidential Race was going to be a woebegone contest between Dull and Duller, the impish whackjob returns for yet another round of merry hi-jinks and paranoiac delusions presented as fact!

oh boy, more charts 'n graphs from that crazy little bastard!

Actually, anything to keep Pat Buchanan out of the game is a good thing.

I think this draft Ross Perot effort has more to do with screwing Pat Buchanan than anything else. The few remaining non-Buchananites in that party don't want him to have the $12.5 million in matching funds due the Reform Party presidential candidate.

Personally, I hope the whackjob does run, if only to put the kibosh on Herr Buchanan. (I voted for Perot in 1992, much to my eternal shame.)

Anyone who has the potential to take votes away from Bush has my eternal blessing.

I suspect that even Perot is unlikely to wrest control of the party away from Buchanan at this point - Buchanan took over at a time when the party was weakened over its struggle to expel Jesse Ventura's supporters and I think Perot loyalists have fired all their ammunition, so to speak.
