I think I’d like presidential campaign politics more if the stakes were a little higher.
I think there should be conseuqences. There was this campaign in aught-four, “Vote or Die,” which curiously enough involved Puff Daddy but not any actual death. Couldn’t we reinvent it for the candidates themselves? Win . . . Or Die. I mean, if Hillary Clinton got to drag Edwards out back by his hair and pistol-whip him to death as punishment for his concession, you can bet your ass he’d’ve run a better campaign. If John McCain were allowed to feast on the palpitating heart of Rudy Giuliani and absorb his life energy rather than getting some bland statement of support on some tacky dais, well, fuck. I might renew my registration.
