I Hope He's Joking


I'm a Dean backer, and I think he's got a real shot at winning the nomination and maybe the '04 election. But Ted Rall is either forgetting his sarcasm tags, or needs to put down the pipe:

What if the other Democratic candidates came together at a joint press conference to announce that they were dropping out of the race to endorse Dean? If nothing else, cash-starved states would love it--the average primary costs taxpayers $7 million. More to the point, it would save Dean roughly $75 million--enough to close the money gap with Bush.

A more ephemeral but bigger benefit would be the message that a unified Democratic party could send to the electorate.
...
The outcome of the Democratic primaries is now a foregone conclusion.
...
Just this once, let's pull the left together. We can go back to tearing each other apart in December '04. I promise.

How 'bout we cast a few votes first? Nothing is inevitable in a democracy, polls do not determine winners, and trading our franchise to save a few bucks is anathema to our republic.
