  •  I agree with you... (5+ / 0-)

    When I first found out that the Green Party was going to be an allowed party choice on NY State's Voter Registration forms (after a long absence), I was really happy for the addition of another liberal-style option for those not willing to check off REP, but too "free-spirited" to ID as DEM.

    The site you link to seems like a prank; can't believe they'd waste their new-found party legitimacy on something like this...

          and valid things right after that but... exactly right... why bother paying any attention at that point?

          If this was a write in campaign then sure... make jokes and do whatever clown stuff you have to do to get some attention to the rest of your message... but these guys have a ballot line. They can get votes! They can affect the campaign. They can put pressure on the Democrats to move left to retain their own progressive voters. But this sure as shit ain't gonna get the job done. It's a turn off to anyone serious about trying to effect real change.

        this is too bad, and such a waste of a new, good opportunity :(
