That Other Third Party

I always think of the Libertarian Party as a dinky organization, but rarely consider other ones such as the Prohibition Party, the sole purpose of which is to reinstitute the ban on alcohol sales in the country. Yes, they're still around. The Guardian reports only 518 people voted for the party in 2012, but they were only on the ballot in one state.

And people think libertarians are the crackpots.

Nah, more than half the country are crackpots... poorly educated, bigoted, superstitious crackpots.

That's not a swipe at libertarians. It's a swipe at all of America.

My suggestion to the leader of the Prohibition party would be to make productive use of his time by volunteering to lead alchohalic anonymous classes.

I'd point out that AA is a religion-based therapy, but the Prohibition Party is thoroughly religious, so never mind.
