    So, a recent poll by PPP showed that Virgil Goode is pulling from Romney in Virginia and has a cryptic conclusion in their report that “Goode staying off the ballot may be vital to Romney’s prospects there.”

    The report can be read here: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2012/07/obama-holding-serve-in-the-upper-south.html

    Though almost entirely pointless given the venue, I posted a response to that polling story which may or may not get moderated out, so I’ll throw it out here as well:

    It is sad that American democracy has been so captured by the two-party system, which uses the law to limit access by third parties and rewards with money and other legal advantages the two main parties, that a statement such as “Goode staying off the ballot may be vital to Romney’s prospects there” is viewed as merely a factual assessment of the situation by a polling company, and not a value-laden premise of legalized duopoly. I am no supporter of Virgil Good by any measure, but that ballot access is used to crimp democracy in America is largely ignored. It has become such a regular part of the political landscape that horse race predictions of campaign outcomes can routinely use denial of access to the ballot as a legitimating factor. I’m sure this poll comment will point out to the Romney campaign that it might make sense for it to use its already over-sized campaign funds to oppress Mr. Goode’s VA ballot access effort with expensive and probably spurious legal challenges.

    Please don’t do this now. You are a spoiler and you will be responsible for handing the election to Mr Obama. Can you live with yourself knowing that? We don’t want you. Please get out!

    Ah, yes…. the spoiler! I wonder how Sissy feels about Jill Stein being a “spoiler” handing the state to Romney? Hmmm…
