Re: Brexit: what say ye?

Prior to declaring himself/herself, a candidate must serve the first six months of the election year in the Eastasia War Zone on frontline duty. (There's always a war in Eastasia.)

Either that, or the candidate must have won the Mural Crown.

The one thing I do have to give him credit for is he hasn't started a war with Iran or North Korea.
I think the credit there goes to the fact that the leaders of those nations, though madmen, are not crazy.
Maybe so, but that doesn't seem to have stopped his predecessors from starting wars.

(I refuse to believe that Booty Jig will be nominated, but he's no less qualified than Trump, and a new face. So maybe he could win.) Buttigieg may be acceptable to most Democrats and the moderate Republicans, but I think the black evangelicals and baptists would let him die. Remember Proposition 8.
