Lest you forget, this election is still a three-legged race: Democrat President Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and Libertarian Gary Johnson. The third leg may not be as big as the other two, but every once and a while it rises up and demands everyone's attention…
Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson filed an anti-trust lawsuit in federal court Friday to try to force his way into next month's presidential debates.
Johnson, who first sought the GOP primary nomination before launching a third-party bid, is suing the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates and both the Democratic and Republican parties, calling the CPD a "conspiracy."
Johnson isn't asking the voting public to marry him, he's just saying if a candidate spends a lot of time and money getting to 270 electoral votes, that candidate should be invited inside for a night cap debate. He only wants the opportunity to get to second base with us, but the CPD is a real ice queen. According to Johnson's complaint, the group meets every four years to "hoodwink" the American people out of a real debate. What a talk tease.
If aggressively litigious tactics don't win you over, maybe you're one of those voters who's attracted to a good sense of humor. Thankfully, that's another thing Johnson likes to throw around…
