Lazy Sunday Political Nonsense. - UPDATE [ArthurK]

Ed Morrisey over at HotAir has an amusing speculation - what if Obama doesn't run again?


Lets pretend Ed's right and Obama decides he's not into this anymore and announces in a few months that he's not running for reelection. Hillary and how many dozen other Dems are going to jump into a suddenly wide-open race? Gotta assume Hillary's the front runner. She'll suck up lots of "I'm so sorry I supported Obama and betrayed you Hill." Would Biden run? I can't imagine who else would jump in - rather, who wouldn't jump in?

And it would have an large impact on the Republican race - the guys more towards the center become stronger as the fight for the middle picks up steam.


Best Election Cycle Ever!


(as a spectator sport)

Ok, this post sucked. I've got a better one!

Latest Obama Brain Storm - Free Lunches for Affluent students!

... the recent $4.5 billion expansion of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which will now provide free lunches to ALL - rich and poor, needy and non-needy - of Detroit’s 65,800 public school-students.

But the program’s logic is even more insane than the price tag: The administration says it is giving rich kids free food to eliminate the shame that less-fortunate students may feel in receiving free food. We’re not making this up.

"We’ve worked very hard to reduce the stigma," Aaron Lavallee, a U.S. Department of Agriculture spokesman,..."

"Now all students will walk through a lunch line and not have to pay," says Mark Schrupp, Detroit Public Schools COO. "Low-income students will not be easily identifiable and will be less likely to skip meals."

Again, we aren’t making this up.

... government has become a piggy bank for the Left to hand out favors to friends, subsidize third-car hybrid purchases for the rich, and test goofy theories about class stigma

Again, this is in Detroit! A city that doesn't need more bold social experiments.
