How do people like this make it into office? Between her waxing scientific and Rick Perry claiming prayer will fix the economy, it’s time to start writing any politician you can to demand aptitude tests for registering to vote (or IQ tests for candidates). Hopefully votes being cast would be less misguided on both sides of the spectrum.

Personally, I’m still a fan of Ron Paul. He doesn’t give a damn about pointless talking points like gay marriage and abortion, and for that Fox News and most other profit based news organizations marginalize him or don’t even give him a mention. Regardless of his policies, he’s more honest and focused on actual problems than Bachman or Perry. Buddy Roemer seems to have the right idea too, but he’s been out of the political field for a while now so he’s got alot of work to do.
If nothing else either of them would make the debates leading up to the election actually interesting rather than embarrassing. We all know how hard hitting questions like “what do you read” can really throw off a candidate.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m voting for our incumbent president unless he actually fucks up, not just gets blame tossed on him once a GOP member wasn’t in the president’s seat. But if the Party of No doesn’t start giving some strength to worthwhile candidates, we’re all screwed.
