"I'm Gary Johnson and I approve these straw men."

David said...

"Do you prefer war or peace?"

The correct answer is "it depends."

rehajm said...

Thanks Jill Stein! You've got my vote!

EDH said...

Vacuous. Over produced.

As if in direct, if not ridiculously simplistic response to Althous's earlier challenge to propose "a merger of the basket-of-deplorables people with the baristas-in-the-basement people."

I don't know about anyone else, but when I read (not aloud) the title of this post it didn't have the goofy intonations that I heard when I listened to Gary in the video.

It wasn't just the dopey music. It was mostly the dopey dolt.

Maybe, if your problem is that a lot of folks don't think you're a serious candidate, going childlike isn't the best direction.

Just Sayin'

Anywho, I'm still voting for him because I live in a state that isn't going DJT, so I can be un-HRC-sullied w/o feeling the burden of implicitly supporting the un-seriousness that is DJT.

Cosmo women like it.
Who benefits?

Are you impugning my lack of wordiness?

Jon Ericson said...

O.K. then. PAX out.

traditionalguy said...

So Johnson also wants to make America Great Again, plus legalize drugs.

That's a vote for Trump, unless you believe the big lie that DJT is a wild and crazy guy.

I'm fairly certain that he has dementia.

baked.

Jon Ericson said...

Agreed baked. Dreamy to meth-women though.
Ballooning demographic I understand.

"Aleppo's not here, man."

David Begley said...

Go away, Gary Johnson.

Amexpat said...

He had pretty much lost my vote before this. This seals it.

Jill Stein was never a possibility. So who's going to get the middle of the road, pragmatic, sane person vote?

"So who's going to get the middle of the road, pragmatic, sane person vote?"

McMullin?

My, my! Trump supporters get upset by perfectly legitimate answers to broad questions about American wants and likes. Could it be that these Trumpsters have turned off their minds and now bow humbly to Trump's new authoritarianism (which is now Trumpism) characterized by strong central power limited only to the extent that Donald decides and he then gets undying support from legislative and administrative politicians dedicated to Love Our Leader. Sieg Heil!

Who cares if the economy bottoms out and prices skyrocket because of his ill-conceived economic programs that will cause prices to rise, interest to increase, consumer sales to drop and another housing bubble. This new bigger government and accompanying increases in government handouts must be the end game for our Trump populists who could care less about being lied to as long as Donald is doing the lying.

Trump is smart, you know, because his brother is a brain surgeon.

"Trump is smart, you know, because his brother is a brain surgeon."

Sorry, Donald's brother Freddy was an alcoholic which doesnt count. It was his late Uncle John who was the smart guy. He was a physicist.

David said...

"Trump is smart, you know, because his brother is a brain surgeon."

No. It's because his sister is Senior United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

(Appointed a District Judge by Reagan. Appointed to the Third Circuit by Bill Clinton.)

Bummer, huh?

JAORE said...

The thousands (literally) of voters open to influence by this quiz are mighty thankful there was no math involved.

"Aleppo's not here, man."

Paco wins the thread.

JPS said...

Clyde nailed it in the first post.

I liked that original Johnson-Weld commercial, a lot, but what still rankles is the implication that we can have all we want from government, for less, if we just have the right people in charge of it. ("It was easy!" says Weld, dismissively, of his [considerable] successes as MA governor.)

Paul Bird said...

Not a great commercial, but I'd rather vote for Johnson over the major party nominees who will be bad for America as president.

Michelle Dulak Thomson said...

The more I see of Johnson, the less I like him. Sorry. His appearance on "This Week" (last week) was plain embarrassing. And this ad does nothing for him. He's in the running only because the major-party candidates are both so frakkin' awful.
