    YES! You saw it! That's the moment when the freakout happened. (As if Alaska had any chance of going blue, anyway.) Then she threw her cell phone at Nicolle Wallace and then did that terrible Katie Couric interview. The rest is history.

    Oh, I don't disagree with you. The fact that we're even seriously discussing Sarah Palin as Secretary of Commerce, or whatever, tells us just how far our country has fallen. Not that most of the other choices have been much better... but Palin? I don't think she's even mentally stable. Something happened to her during the 2008 election. There's a spring loose or something. I can't make sense of most of what she says now, and that is a shame because she seemed like a competent governor of Alaska before being tapped by McCain for VP. The film Game Change depicts Palin losing her marbles during the campaign; several McCain staffers say it's an accurate portrayal of what happened during the campaign. There will be no real liberty picks. The best we can hope for is a few non-neocons.

    I see your Sarah Palin Word Salad and raise you Sarah Palin Word Diarrhea: ...she actually talks about Trump's VP pick being his "food taster", at one point. Food taster. While I don't like Romney or his policies, he can at least put together a coherent sentence. Sarah lost that ability sometime in 2008.

    So the quote is regarding a libertarian run for the Colorado state legislature in 1978, where there was only a Republican in the race. Sounds totally relevant to a national presidential campaign, against multiple parties, in 2016, doesn't it? ;) I can't believe that quote was posted over and over like that, as if we're supposed to believe a campaign from nearly 40 years ago in a single congressional district, against one challenger, bears any relation whatsoever to the 2016 national presidential campaign, when a billion dollars was spent by the major parties. Then again, we've got people still claiming Gary Johnson "would" only attract 0.1% of the vote. Even though that hasn't happened... twice already. Sure, let's go back to getting .32% of the vote because Gary got 3.2%. Johnson was outspent by Clinton by over a half a billion dollars; Clinton spent nearly twice as much money attacking Gary than he even had in his entire campaign budget. Johnson was outspent by Trump by over $300,000,000. It is remarkable that Gary managed the numbers he got. And in fact, he spent far, far less per vote than either Trump or Clinton. It's not even close.

    You're missing the point that the Green Party, the Constitution Party, etc., remained small, whereas the LP gained 100,000 members this year, under Gary's campaign. Did you really forget? Johnson already ran in a year when the R and D candidates weren't so hated (2012) and broke LP records then, too. He just never has had access to a half a billion dollars (where are our Koch friends?), or unlimited amounts of free press (courtesy of Clinton telling the media to cover Trump heavily, a strategy that backfired on her). No, Johnson did really well, for only having $10 million. He estimated he'd need $20 million to run a competitive campaign, and only got half that amount. Clinton spent 18 million dollars on attack ads against him, she sent the press to destroy him, and he still broke the LP record for highest percentage and most voters.

    Sorry, Gunny: much as I respect you, I disagree. If growth in the LP "had nothing to do with Johnson but hatred of the Reps and Dems", why didn't any other party do as well as the LP? Johnson received almost three times as many votes as all other third parties combined. He did this by maintaining a rigorous campaign schedule and keeping in the public eye. If it had "nothing to do with Johnson", but hatred of the Rs and Ds, the other parties would have done better. No one else even broke 1%.

    Great point, Krug. Gary received more votes than any other LP POTUS candidate, ever. The idea that someone else would have done better seems like fantasy: no one in the LP ever received this many votes. The fact is, Gary spread the word of libertarianism to a very wide audience: newspapers, magazines, television, radio, and social media. Though I'm not sure NBC or ABC ever mentioned his campaign, he got on CBS (60 Minutes and Colbert), and he was on CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC multiple times. He did hundreds of interviews and several times trended on Google Trends. This exposure was very good for the party: the party gained members, going from 400,000 to 500,000 registered party members, in the space of just one year. And 4,200,000 votes is nothing to sneeze at, especially when the competition had a half a billion dollars each.

    Haha! Cuuuute! I don't mind it so much on a message board, but in a professionally-published news column, journalists should know how to use an apostrophe. Someone was paid to write that article. Someone who shouldn't have been allowed to pass fifth grade English class.

    These kinds of stories always frustrate me. Perfectly good food being thrown out, while people go hungry. Really upsetting. ... (Though I do wish the reporter knew how to use a freakin' apostrophe. All versions of this story are very poorly spelled: "thats," "Kansas Citys," "its awesome," "couldnt," "wasnt," "thats" (again!), "wont," etc.)

    Well said. The numbers in each election are growing. This is a good sign. And in fact, the Libertarian Party earned ballot access in several states, based on Johnson's showing. Here's the full list:
