The Ham Hock of Liberty

Saturday, August 05, 2006


Every election cycle sees its share of baffling, quixotic runs, but one of the most baffling right now has to be George Pataki's. I thought perhaps he had sobered up and gone home, but it seems he's doing just the opposite, putting even more effort into his bid.

To its credit, the AP actually quotes a Hillary advisor who points out that George Pataki is the only person who takes his candidacy seriously. Which is true, and puts Pataki in such august company as Joe Biden and Newt Gingrich.

Seriously, what information could George Pataki or Joe Biden have that the rest of us don't, which leads them to waste what precious time is left in their lives, running for a presidency they have even less chance of seeing than Ralph Nader?
I feel bad for their political friends and relatives who pony up the obligatory donations...
