Since the 2012 elections seem to have begun already….

Posted in The upcoming Mayan general elections by Davis X. Machina on December 25, 2010

…without having the common decency to let 2011 happen first, everyone’s calling the 2012 primary races, and I can’t handle the peer pressure. So….

The winner is Chris Christie, running as the fightin’ general American needs to manage its war on public employees.

I expect he’d do rather well. Crab-bucket syndrome (If I don’t have a job, then you don’t get to have one either) is bi-partisan—see discussions here on public-sector pensions—ostensibly race-neutral—but you know who those employees all are, wink, wink—and not closely identified with any particular area of the country. It’s not obviously part of the religious wars, either.

Ressentisment light—all the rage, without all the baggage.

GOP R&D may have finally developed the new product they needed, now that the patent on fighting nearly pointless wars in nearly unreachable places has expired, generics are available, and it’s in all the shops now, not just the GOP.
