    Can I vote for my nipples? At least they're somewhat responsive!

    Looking at this poll, it's really making me wish we had a runoff system to give some of the third party guys a chance. Obama vs Johnson would make my day.

    I think I'm going to vote Johnson, just like I voted Barr in the last election. Throwing away my vote? Yeah, probably. But the hell if Obama, or even worse... Romney, gets it.

    Not throwing your vote away. Lincoln was the first third party president.

    I would vote for me, since I'm the only person who could possibly agree with 100% of my positions, even when my position on any particular matter changes! ;)

    I really don't like any of my choices, and without equal representation of party choice in the Legislative branch, the other choices are pretty much not very effective for getting what one want's done.

    I'd vote for a Fiddy/MSP ticket. Seeing as how the prez has no actual power, we'd at least, have a couple guys that look cool.

    Fiddy/MSP might be good. Fiddy could handle all the Putinesque stunts, like tranquilizing Grizzly Bears. However, it's no contest! The clear winner would be:
