A Few Democratic Words

There was going to be no Cobbian comment on the Democratic hopefuls because there are too damned many. But I may as well put in a few cents. According to Kos/Drum here are the numbers, and my comments.

Clark 14%
I think Clark is the man to beat and it doesn't surprise me that a general would make for a good candidate in 2004. That Bush is relying on neocon ideologues and raising great ire at the Pentagon with Rummy the Implacable, this is a slam dunk angle. How well he can weather the political storm is interesting. But we also have an economy to deal with.

Dean 12%
Whatever. I don't see vision here. I think he's a fake, not that I've listened.

Lieberman 12%
Lieberman rubs me the wrong way. I think he's a self-important blowhard who will sell out the left at the drop of a hat. Besides, Congressmen don't make for good Presidents in my book.

Kerry 10%
Kerry, in my estimation is the most respectable character out of the bunch. If he expends some energy, he may have a chance.

Gephardt 8%
Gephardt embodies everything that I cannot stand about Democrats. He represent labor through inheritance rather than from work. He speaks at all the wrong times and has no bass in his voice. He has all the leadership qualities of a committee.

Sharpton 7%
President Sharpton. That's just scary. Shouldn't he be a corrupt alderman first?

Edwards 6%
Who?

Graham 4%
Who?

Braun 2%
Uhm. Past her prime.

Kucinich 2%
A nobody who should stay that way. Anybody can deliver rhetoric.

Lieberman looks like Senator Palpitine. And he's too uptight to make it work for him.

Imagine him getting interviewed by MTV, and having them ask about his resemblance to Palpitine, and answering something about putting Darth Vader in charge of Defense or Bush putting Darth Vader at Justice. He'd make a huge splash. But Lieberman is too uptight to do something like that.

Separated at birth! That's fricken hilarious. I've got to find pictures.

It went around the blogosphere a while ago, but didn't hit Instapundit. Try googling it (see my URL).
