Journal Captain Splendid's Journal: Dear Santa, 5

Long time, no write. But I've been a good boy this year, kept my mouth shut and my ass out of trouble. So what I really, really, really want for Christmas this year is for Newt Gingrich to win the New Hampshire primary. The margin doesn't matter so long as he comes out on top after the voting.

Yours in Coca-Cola,

      Instead, they're going to keep flailing around, latching on to any candidate (Perry, Christie, Cain, Newt) and any idea (brokered convention, maybe O
      • Obama should step aside for Hillary

        I saw a comic with Hillary and "Coulda Shoulda Woulda", but I'm thinking about it, and I'm like, any president would have had a sucky term what with what they were handed. Don't think that the democratic position now would have been better off if only Hillary had run.

        And seriously, look at the field of fuckwits that the Republicans have offered up for sacrifice to an incumbent president. I was telling a friend, the Republicans aren't actually putting up anyone serious in this fight (where's Bobby Jindal? wh
