H. David Werder is running for Florida's 11th district Congressional seat, but more importantly, back in the '80s, Werder sat on top of a flagpole for 439 days, 11 hours and six minutes, which seems like enough.

The advent of SuperPACs and the general flood of money into political campaigns may be wrecking our democracy, but is that such a steep price to pay for hilarious campaign ads? The Founders would surely say no.
Though presidential campaigns get most of the attention, we must also honor the House and Senate campaigns that deliver on our founding promise of life, liberty and LOLs.

People like making fun of Rep. Allen West because he's supposedly always saying a lot of silly stuff. But I watched this new campaign ad for a whole 11 seconds before I heard him say anything verging on self-parody…
"That's the American dream. There's no such thing as a Somali dream, a Chinese dream, there's one dream—the American dream and that's why people came to these shores."
Okay, laugh all you want, but let me ask you this: Have you ever actually seen a Somali person dream? Or a Chinese person? Can you prove that they were dreaming?
Well, then, don't you feel dumb.

David Axelrod on the redness of North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida…
"Anybody who thinks those states are in the bag is half in the bag themselves."
That may be the case, but if you think North Carolina is going to tip toward Obama at this point then you are probably on some sort of strong hallucinogenic. Because, really, what is blue or red anyway? They're just illusions. Everything is an illusion. Oh my God, all of life is nothing more than a puff of illogical imagination emanating from David Axelrod's mustache?
When your really think about it, that's about as likely as Obama taking N.C.
