Electoral Politics Made Simple

By Chris Matthews, as usual. Tweety does hear a different drummer from the rest of us. He thinks that the value of politicians can be measured by how big or beefy they are:

But, you know, I do see a lot of really good second-tier candidates here, but I don't see a big, beefy alternative to Hillary Clinton -- a big guy. You know what I mean? An all -- an every-way big guy. I don't see one out there. I see a lot of slight, skinny, second- and third-rate candidates.

Wouldn't it be great if it was that easy? We could just go to the store and by three pounds of ground Evangelical fundamentalist or a nice rack of Liberal ribs. Pun intended.
