Question of the Day

I've long been an admirer of blogger Glenn Reynolds and have read him daily for five years. I rarely disagree with him on politics. And that's why I've said that if he ever ran for President, I'd vote for him enthusiastically. Reynolds, however, lacks the Constitutionally prerequisite narcissism and pomposity to be a serious candidate for the Presidency.

But here's an even better idea than a Glenn Reynolds Administration: Ace of Spades as President of the United States. He runs a very serious and yet completely unserious blog and is a gifted humor writer. He's the sort of blogger I'd like to be if I had more talent, and his politics largely jive with mine.

Like Reynolds, Ace is probably too sensible to ever run for President, but I think that he could be tricked into announcing his candidacy if we Morons came together and got him drunk enough.
I know -- it's a pipe dream. Ace is far away in New York City, and I'm here in my undisclosed bunker, too far away to participate in such a project. It's a shame. An Ace of Spades Administration would be truly entertaining.

What blogger would you like to see run for President?

I'm gonna have to go with Gordon Atkinson or Michael Spencer. I know, their both Baptists, but we haven't really had a good run with United Methodists in politics.

I would nominate google to be president. It knows everything anyway. There is no new knowledge only pages that google hasn't found yet.

I think that Google is running for God, not President.

Kurt -- why these two? I don't know anything of their politics.

Well, to follow your lead, they're both a pipe dream. I don't know anything about their politics either--other than they are two of the most spirtually naked people I know in the Christian blogosphere.

I guess I focused too much on the "blogger" part of the question. I just like and respect the guys. Probably not the best way to choose a preidient.

That's also not the best way to spell president.

We don't need any naked people running for President!
