I am going to be backing a couple of Republicans for office this fall, but our fellow resident and blogger, Kad Barma has again made the point that the two parties are flawed institutions and that we are seeing the rise of the Independents. For example, 50% of the voters are registered as Unenrolled (in a party), which means either a pox on all your parties or I don't really care or I am afraid to say, given the way people are around here.
Thus, I am looking for Kad to be backing Tim Cahill for Governor. Remember Tim? Remember "Tim for Treasurer"? I will be looking to Kad to keep us up to date on Tim's progress over the Spring, Summer and Fall.
It will be interesting to see from whom this former Democrat draws voters in November. And, it will be interesting to see if Christy Mihos again bolts the Republican Party this Spring, if he gets passed over by the Republican State Convention for the Governor's race. Kad, what do you think?
