I think we should just officially replace all political commentary with odds charts like this. It's kind of brilliant, because it's no less arbitrary than prose.

I think boys endlessly talking about which Beatles album is best—is also arbitrary.

I assume that Grandholm's long odds take the likelihood of a fast-track change to the Constitution into account?

If Granholm's (non-existent) probability of being elected President is on the list, why not Schwarzenegger's (equally non-existent) probability? Hell, why not Henry Kissinger's or Neil Young's (equally non-existent) probabilities?

There will be no Constitutional amendment to change the native-born requirement in any of their lifetimes.

Rudy over Romney? Please.

I’m personally hoping for a Wes Clark/John Edwards Dem ticket. They would kick ass.

No way that Clinton or Obama will win. If there’s two things Americans hate, it’s women who don’t know their place and racial minorities.

McCain, Romney and Giuliani likewise don’t have a chance. They’re just not anti-gay and racist enough, and they’ll never make it past the sociopathic nuts running the GOP. Especially Romney, who’s allowed crazed sodomites to enter into legally binding, loving, long term relationships on his watch. GOPer’s despise that equality and dignity BS.

I’d say that Jeb Bush, Huckabee or Brownback are the most likely candidates here.

yeah, josh, but the difference is that the beatles MATTER.

What really matters is which Beatle wrote the best songs?

I'm not sure, but McCartney definitely wrote some of their worst.

This is the lamest attempt to build Andy Stern buzz I've ever seen, Josh...
