The Progressive Wanker, in a desperate attempt to woo disaffected Democrats, will run as an independent in November. Even running as a Prog, Pollina would have got maybe 10% of votes? The Progressive Party of Vermont has been in demise-mode for a while, but this is the death knell par excellence. I'll have to get out to Battery Street to see if the Pollina sign is still out in front of Prog headquarters. If he's collected all those signatures as the Prog candidate, you bettah believe it he'll have to start all over again. GMD has some theories behind his political flip-flop. I still won't vote for him.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
